Over the years EG KIGHT has emerged as a preeminent voice in roots music. CityBeat Cincinnati writes that Kight is “a cross between Bonnie Raitt’s bourbon-stung growl and Phoebe Snow’s emotive warble.”   In her 25+ years in the Blues, Kight has entertained on stages around the world, and has received 19 various music industry nominations, including nine for Female Artist of the Year, three for Song of the Year, and four for Album of the Year.  And her 2023 release, STICKS & STRINGS, was nominated for the 2024 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album of the Year.

Kight is an indisputable triple threat – as singer, songwriter, and guitar player – with her own unique blend of “country flavored southern fried Blues”, her music appeals to fans across the genres. Her songwriting is a true strength, evidenced by her original songs being recorded by Koko Taylor, Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women, Dorothy Moore, and Ann Rabson & Bob Margolin, among other luminaries.

“…a real gem, one of a handful of artists who reach out and make a personal connection with the audience.  Her warm personality, humor, harmonies with her trio, and stellar songwriting cut across the Blues spectrum, all delivered with a dynamic stage presence.” Gary Anton, Bradfordville Blues Club, Tallahassee, FL.
