From EG Kight
The 2013 Georgia Music Legend Award recipient, EG Kight takes great pride in representing the USA. Considered one of the few true blues vocalists, Kight has headlined at venues around the globe, and has been involved in fundraising concerts in Germany, Japan and Mexico. Kight has been nominated for the 2015 Blues Music Awards Koko Taylor Award, she landed on theAXS.com list of Top 5 Best Blues Artists of 2014, and her latest album landed on the Blues Bytes 2014 Top 10 Albums list, and the Roots Music Report’s Top 100 Blues Album Chart for 2014. She has also been nominated for two Blues Blast awards, and has six previous BMA nominations, twice for Song of the Year. Many artists have recorded her songs, and she’s had songs on two Grammy-nominated albums, and on two compilations that maintained Billboard chart positions for over a year. She has appeared on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion, and an original song from her segment was re-broadcast on the Listener’s Choice Program. And her songs have appeared on the Children’s Miracle Network, Nick at Nite, and on ABC Family. Kight’s style transcends musical boundaries. With a rich and velvety voice, and a mastery of the guitar that has her holding her own next to any other player, Kight mesmerizes audiences of all ages. And Taylor Guitars proudly provides her with the tools of her trade. Kight is grateful to be alive, and to continue making music. A near-death illness a few years back transformed her music into a more positive shade of blue. On her latest album, A NEW DAY, she infuses her “country-flavored southern-fried blues” with a little gospel to create her most inspiring venture to date.
