A commanding live performer blessed with an unforgettable voice, Amythyst Kiah combines the political and the deeply personal in a spellbinding examination of grief, alienation, healing, self-respect and love in all its incarnations.

Her Rounder Records debut, Wary + Strange, marked the glorious combination 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. The Tennessee singer-songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she revealed as part of Our Native Daughters – an all-women-of-colour supergroup whose Kiah-penned standout Black Myself earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards. Wary + Strange earned Amythyst multiple Americana Music Association Award nominations both in the US and UK in 2021 and her second Rounder album is scheduled for release in late 2024.
