“Kight occupies a cool, unique place on the country side of contemporary Blues”
— Richard Rosenblatt, VizzTone label group Prez.
“Georgia Songbird” EG KIGHT has headlined at clubs and festivals across America and Europe. Born and raised in a small town in rural Georgia, Kight still lives on the land that’s been in her family for four generations. Her roots go deep, and that comes through in her music, a Blues/country hybrid that encompasses elements of americana, jazz, gospel and pop. EG tours as a solo artist and with a band, and recently performed with a symphony orchestra one weekend, and three weeks later on NPR’s famed “A Prairie Home Companion”. Her five previous CDs have consistently hit the Blues radio charts, and she has been acclaimed as a performer and as a songwriter—she has been honored with six Blues Music Award nominations, twice for Song of the Year; her original composition won the People’s Choice Award in an international Peace Song Challenge, and her songs have appeared on two Grammy nominated albums.
On LIP SERVICE, EG KIGHT beefs up her Country-Flavored Southern-Fried Blues with some very heavy hitters from the world of Southern Rock: producer/keyboardist PAUL HORNSBY (Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, etc.), keyboardist RANDALL BRAMBLETT (Sea Leavell, Bonnie Raitt, etc.), guitarist TOMMY TALTON (Cowboy), Capricorn Records session drummer BILL STEWART, and horn players EARL FORD and MARCUS HENDERSON. The CD also features her great road band and a duet with rising Blues star John Németh.
