Singer. Songwriter. GuitarPlayer. Entertainer. 
Storyteller. Photographer. Author.

When she talks, the endearing southern drawl draws people in like a magnet. And when she sings and plays that guitar, there’s no doubt that EG Kight means business. She tours as a trio or as a solo, and her live show consists of about 80% original songs. And as a storyteller, in between songs she often shares humorous stories with her audiences about her southern upbringing.

With her rich vocals, captivating guitar style, and hefty catalog of well-crafted original songs, she has entertained audiences around the globe in true southern style. An indisputable triple threat – as singer, songwriter, and guitar player - with her own unique blend of "country flavored southern fried blues”, her music appeals to fans across the genres.

Kight’s original songs have been recorded by several major blues artists, some have aired on five major TV networks and in film, and two songs recently aired on the Season 6 SEC Network “TrueSouth” episode about her hometown of Dublin. And those songs have been added to the ESPN Spotify playlist.

Kight’s 2021 "Trio Sessions" record garnered three Acoustic Album of the Year nominations from various music industry organizations. And Kight received three different Female Artist of the Year nods as well.

And her 2023 "Sticks & Strings" album was nominated for a Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album. It debuted at #10 on the Billboard Blues Chart, #11 on the Big Blues Chart, #16 on the Living Blues Radio Chart, #19 on the Australian Blues and Roots Chart, and at #22 on the North American College & Community Radio Chart (NACC). And EG's trio - Gary Porter (drums/harmonica) and Ken Wynn (guitar/dobro) performed several songs from the record on the Blues Music Awards show in Memphis in May.

With a total of 19 music nominations over the last 25 years, Kight has no plans to slow down. She’s writing more new songs and performing more live shows, taking her unique blend of roots music to various stages across the country.

No matter the stage, wherever she’s making music, she’s at home. It’s what she does. It’s what she loves…
