The Rounder Records debut from Amythyst Kiah, Wary + Strange marks the glorious collision of two
vastly different worlds: the iconoclastic alt-rock that first sparked her musical passion, and the
roots/old-time-music scene where she’s found breakout success in recent years, including
recognition from Rolling Stone as “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.”
Along with tapping into the vibrant musicality she honed in part through her studies in East
Tennessee State University’s Bluegrass, Old Time, Country Music program, the Chattanooga-bred
singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she’s displayed as a member of Our
Native Daughters—an all-women-of-color supergroup whose Kiah-penned standout Black Myself
earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the Folk
Alliance International Awards.
Wary + Strange arrives as a deeply immersive body of work, endlessly redefining the limits of roots
music in its inventive rhythms and textures. With an unforgettable voice that’s both unfettered and
exquisitely controlled, Kiah gracefully interlaces political commentary and personal revelation,
ultimately offering a raw yet nuanced examination of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph
of total self-acceptance.
This Voodoo Rooms date is the ONLY Scottish date of a 4-date UK tour.
