About Amythyst Kiah

Amythyst Kiah is a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter that has found a way to fuse traditional roots music with a contemporary style that does not take away from the integrity of the original song, and transforms them into powerful, soulful renditions.

She draws heavily on Old Time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Roscoe Holcombe, Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers), and is inspired by vocal stylings of R&B and Country music from the ’50s-’70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn). She also draws from contemporary popular artists that have similar powerful vocal integrity (Megan Jean and the KFB, Dax Riggs, Thom Yorke). Needless to say, Amythyst has got a lot of tools in her vocal tool box, and is also well on her way to joining the powerhouse vocalist pantheon.
