Sticks and Strings
E.G. Kight opens her latest studio recording with “Talk to Me”, her self penned original. Five more songs were co-written with Tom Horner her “go to” writing partner. Kights guitar playing gives her expressive vocals just the “right” touch much liker her contemparies Doug MacCloud and Eric Bibb. Kight is supported by her acoustic trio including Ken Wynn guitar, and Gary Porter drums. Added on half the songs is bass guitarist Sean Williams.
Eugenia Gail Kight was born forty-seven years ago in Dublin, Ga. Kight began playing country music and singing gospel in church. She has shared the stage with George Jones and Conway Twitty among others. Kight has eighteen music nominations including BMA nods for Song of The Year, Album of The Year, and Female Artist of The Year. She also covers “Come & Go Blues” by Greg Allman, and songs by Nanette Alexander “My Baby’s Hidin’ Something”, and Jonny Neel (with Doug Jones) “Two Sides To Every Story”.
“Come and Go Blues” sounds like it was inspired by Mose Allison. On “God, Goats and Guitars” she is joined on the vocal by her mother. “Sticks & Strings” sounds like a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Phoebe Snow and another milestone for the prolific Kight.
