Kight was nominated for a 2015 Blues Music Awards Award, was named one of the 2014 Top 5 Best Blues Artists on AXS.com, and her latest album debuted at #9 on the Living Blues Chart. She has also 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. 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. She also appeared on Mountain Stage, and Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour.
A notable songwriter, many artists have recorded Kight’s songs. Several songs ended up on Grammy-nominated albums, and on two compilations that maintained Billboard chart positions for over a year. Her original songs have aired on three major TV networks. And she placed five songs in a film slated for a spring 2017 release.
Long considered one of the few true blues vocalists, Georgia Music Magazine noted that Kight is “…a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for the blues into one tremendously intoxicating voice.
Early in her career Kight was dubbed “The Georgia Songbird,” and today she is considered one of the few true blues vocalists. Georgia Music Magazine writes that she’s “…a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for the blues into one tremendously intoxicating voice.”
With a rich and velvety voice that’s a cross between Phoebe Snow, Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna, and Patsy Cline, Kight performs as a solo, a duo (as the Peach Pickin’ Mamas with Lisa Biales), and with a band. She has also shared the stage with artists across the genres, including Gregg Allman, Phoebe Snow, Merle Haggard, Little Feat, Lee Roy Parnell, B.B. King, and Delbert McClinton.
Whether on stage in front of a live audience, in her office writing songs, or in the studio recording songs for her next album, Kight is at home with her music. It’s who she is. It’s what she does. It’s what she loves.
And her latest album, A New Day, infuses her “country-flavored southern-fried blues” with a little gospel to create her most inspiring venture to date. According to Living Blues Magazine, it is “a testimony to the healing power of music. A New Day is sure to lift the listener’s spirits.”
