2019 GRAMMY Award nominee for Best American Roots Song and winner of Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards, singer/songwriter AMYTHYST KIAH will bring a solo performance to the Strand stage! “With an unforgettable voice that is both unfettered and exquisitely controlled,” Rolling Stone calls her “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.”
KIAH’s Rounder Records debut, “Wary + Strange,” marks the glorious collision of two vastly different worlds: the iconoclastic alt-rock that first sparked her musical passion, and the roots/old-time-music scene where she’s found breakout success in recent years. Along with tapping into the vibrant musicality she honed in part through her studies in East Tennessee State University’s Bluegrass, Old Time, Country Music program, the Chattanooga-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she’s displayed as a member of Our Native Daughters—an all-women-of-color supergroup whose KIAH-penned standout “Black Myself” earned her GRAMMY nomination for Best American Roots Song and the Folk Alliance International Awards recognition.
