EG KIGHT


EG at Jeremiahs kickin it up
Georgia native EG Kight (pronounced Kite) has traveled the world, from Germany to Italy to Japan and Mexico, and points in between. Kight takes great pride in representing the U.S. A versatile entertainer, Kight has performed in clubs, theaters, and at festivals, has appeared on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” and one song from her segment was re-broadcast on the Listener’s Choice Program.

Kight’s 2014 album, A NEW DAY, released to rave reviews,  infuses her “country-flavored southern-fried blues” with a little gospel to create her most inspiring venture to date.  At the end of 2014, she was named one of the Top 5 Best Blues Artists on AXS.com, and her album landed on the Blues Bytes Top 10 Albums list, and the Roots Music Report’s Top 100 Blues Album Chart.

Her 2011 record, LIP SERVICE, charted in the top 10 on Airplay Direct’s Top 50 Blues Albums, and IT’S HOT IN HERE Went to #1 on the Roots Blues Chart. Her last four albums went to #1 on Sirius XM’s Bluesville.

Kight was nominated for the 2015 Blues Music Awards “Koko Taylor Award.” She was also nominated for two 2012 Blues Blast awards, and has had six previous Blues Music Awards nominations, twice for Song of the Year. Her songs have landed on two of Koko Taylor’s Grammy®-nominated albums, and on two blues compilations that maintained Billboard chart positions for over a year.

Three artists who were nominated for a 2013 Blues Music Award had one of EG Kight’s songs on their albums, including the legendary Dorothy Moore, Bob Margolin and the late Ann Rabson, and Shakura S’Aida. Her songs have aired on the Children’s Miracle Network, Nick at Nite, ABC Family, and the El Ray Network.

And she has just placed five songs in a film slated for a 2017 release, starring Tom Sizemore, Rebecca DeMornay, Richard Roundtree, and David Patrick Wilson.

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

Early in her career Kight was dubbed “The Georgia Songbird,” and today she is considered one of the few true blues vocalists. Kight continues to help shape contemporary blues. And Taylor Guitars proudly provides her with the tools of her trade.
.
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 unique blend of music to the fans. It’s what she does. It’s what she loves…
