UPDATE – Soul Step has reissued Amythyst Kiah’s self-titled 2017 full-length on clear vinyl. Only 100 were made, so these will go quickly.¬†
Tennessee bluesmith Amythyst Kiah knows how to do the damn thing.¬† A¬†master¬†in all things Southern Gothic, Amythyst can hypnotize any music sceptic with her incredibly raw vocal performance, simultaneously wielding an acoustic guitar and banjo and leading a band¬†dedicated to African-American roots.¬† From the originals like Mississippi Sheiks¬†and Big Mama Thornton to contemporaries like Brittany Howard and St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Amythyst Kiah and Her Chest of Glass take the blues baton from her torchbearers and continue a rich tradition with prowess and class.
