EG KIGHT

EG Kight has emerged in recent years as a preeminent voice in roots music. With a rich and velvety voice that’s a cross between Phoebe Snow, Bonnie Raitt, and Patsy Cline, Kight has received 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.

With her rich vocals, well-crafted songs, and inimitable sense of humor, her stage show appeals to the listener, no matter their taste. And for several decades 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 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. Her songs have appeared on four major TV networks, one as recently as last fall on NBC’s “Chicago PD.” And she placed five songs in a movie that is currently available on Amazon Prime.

Georgia Music Magazine writes that Kight is “a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for music into one tremendously intoxicating voice.”

Her photography, another facet of her creativity, has landed one of her works on the cover of a novel about the life and times of blues legend Robert Johnson.

When Kight is home, she loves being out in the country with her pet goats, writing new songs, and taking more pictures to add to her photography portfolio. But when it’s time, she loads up the car and heads out, to take her eclectic mix of music to the fans. It’s what she does. It’s what she loves…
