In the mid 90’s, shortly after hearing a Koko Taylor album, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter EG Kight transitioned from touring as a country singer to a full-fledged blues/roots artist. And with her rich vocals, well-crafted songs, and inimitable sense of humor, she has since entertained on stages around the world. She has emerged as a preeminent voice in roots music, receiving various music industry nominations, including six for Female Artist of the Year, three for Song of the Year, and one for Album of the Year.
Through the years Kight has developed a sound that transcends musical boundaries, with a unique blend of blues, country, Americana, southern rock, jazz, gospel, and funk. Her music appeals to the masses, no matter their taste, and she has brought her diverse musical menu to various clubs, theaters, festivals, and corporate events, even appearing on such mainstays as Nashville Now and NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion.
Kight lives on land in Dublin, Georgia that’s been in her family for four generations, and her roots go deep. Early in her career, Kight was dubbed “The Georgia Songbird.” With a rich and velvety voice that’s a cross between Phoebe Snow, Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna, and Patsy Cline, Kight performs as a solo, a trio, and with a band, and has worked shows with artists across the genres, including Gregg Allman, Phoebe Snow, Merle Haggard, Koko Taylor, Little Feat, Lee Roy Parnell, B.B. King, and Delbert McClinton.
Georgia Music Magazine writes that Kight is “a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for the blues into one tremendously intoxicating voice.”
