Press Release: Georgia native EG Kight has performed around the world, and was involved in fundraising in Germany, Japan and Mexico. Kight takes great pride in representing the U.S., and was honored to be the recipient of the 2013 Georgia Music Legend Award
Considered one of the true blues vocalists, Kight has had six Blues Music Awards nominations and two Blues Blast nominations, with three for Song of the Year. Many artists have recorded her songs, and she’s had two songs on two Grammy-nominated albums, and several on two blues compilations that maintained Billboard chart positions for over a year. And earlier this year, one of her songs aired on ABC Family.
Kight continues to help shape contemporary blues with her latest release, A NEW DAY, released on September 16th. Once again co-producing with Paul Hornsby (Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, etc.), Kight relied heaving on her touring band for arrangements on the disc, and the result has helped her reach the pinnacle of her musical mastery. She also enlisted special guests Greg Nagy, Tomy Talton, Randall Bramblett, and Paul Hornsby on keyboards to help round out the album. Ranging from sassy straight ahead blues, to a gospel anthem, to her trademark ballads, this CD provides the listener with a delectably varied menu that will leave them with a sweet taste in their mouths.
Kight’s grateful to be alive, after a life threatening illness a few years back. And according to Kight, “A year after the illness, I was finally able to write songs again and they seem to flow from a deeper place. Several of these songs came from the ‘new me.’ I hope the songs inspire and help you along your path. Thanks to the good Lord and my music, I seem to be healing and on my own way to a ‘new normal.’ Every day of my life now is ‘A New Day.”
When Kight isn’t touring, she loves being out in the country with her pet goats, writing new songs, and taking more pictures to add to her photography portfolio ….
