Michael Buffalo Smith’s take on EG’s live show – Kudzoo magazine, page 55

“EG is a born entertainer. Her stories and comments between songs 
are always fun. When she pulled out an awesome, full tilt rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” it took everyone by  surprise as her blues bled directly into her country music beginnings.”

EG's name on cover of Georgia Music Magazine

EG Kight on a New Day, the Good Lawd and a Goat Named Sippie Wallace
by Candice Dyer, Georgia Music Magazine – 12/17/14

“Kight enjoys stretching her range as an artist, adding a jazzy clarinet here, some earthy funk there, across half a dozen albums. She received the Georgia Music Legend award in 2013. Today, she lives on a farm that has been in her family for four generations, where she tends a small herd of goats and practices photography. A New Day is worth obtaining for its playful album art alone – shots of her wryly shepherding her clowning goats, and one in particular, “Sippie,” a nanny named for Sippie Wallace, poised at a microphone as if about to sing. Kight titled it “Baaad to the Bone.”

EG from stage Blues in the Schools Bradenton
EG Kight, Dave Muskett visit Manatee High in advance of Bradenton Blues Festival

by Meghin Delaney, Bradenton.com – 12/06/14

Having the artists perform and talk about the blues made 16-year-old Amelia Bennett realize the blues isn’t just a “sad” genre of music. Bennett is a junior at Manatee High School and while she wants to one day work in the medical field, she sees music as a great passion. Bennett, who asked multiple questions during Friday’s session, plays the violin. 
“It opened my eyes to the genre of blues that I hadn’t seen before,” Bennett said.

Bradenton Blues Festival a hit with fans and musicians

by Marty Clear, Bradenton.com – 12/07/14

“They sure got a lot of good blues music here,” said Beauford Goodrum, who came from Atlanta for the festival.
He and friend Randi Gainer were both impressed with the festival — and with Bradenton.
“I was born here,” Goodrum said. “I left when I was 6. I’m gonna move back.”
“I’m not from here but I want to live here,” Gainer said.
They both said their favorite act of the day was EG Kight, who hails from Dublin, Ga.”

Blues woman E.G. Kight’s songs keep the bills paid and the tours going
by Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times – 01/09/13

“Her music caused critics to sit up and take notice, even if her peers seemed puzzled by the mixing of two very distinctive genres. Though her Southern drawl is still evident, her fiery fusion of funk, blues, country, gospel and pop come together into a rich flurry of songs that invite lovers of all genres to get on their feet.
She’s evolved, you might say.”

GA Music Magazine 2008 story by Jewly Hight
EG Kight -A Career in Country Gave Her the Blues

by Jewly Hight, Georgia Music Magazine – 09/18/08

“Kight’s entrée to blues came through devouring every Taylor recording she could get her hands on (even imports and rare Chess vinyl). She introduced a few Taylor covers into her country-leaning live act; combine all that with the fact that Kight is a lifelong resident of Dublin, Ga. (“I still live on land that belonged to my great-grandfather”), and her songs are often unique in their juxtaposition of electric Chicago blues sounds and Southern themes. “Pass the Plate,” on Kight’s new album, is a case in point: It’s a rollicking, urban-sounding boogie energized with bright layers of guitar, piano and horns, but the song’s lyrics describe a Southern fried chicken dinner on the church grounds.”
