With an unforgettable voice that’s both unfettered and exquisitely controlled, the Tennessee-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she most recently revealed as part of Our Native Daughters, an all-women-of-color 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. When met with the transcendent quality of her newly elevated sound, what emerges is an extraordinary vessel for Kiah’s songwriting: a raw yet nuanced examination of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph of total self-acceptance.

She’s set for another big year and has just released a fantastic new track called Black Myself as part of Our Native Daughters, a collaborative album with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Alli Russell which explores the historical experience of black women in the US. It’s written and sung by Amythyst and is a hugely powerful anthem-in-waiting.
