To showcase our new Generation Collection, we collaborated with songwriters and players who represent a new, wildly diverse generation of genre-crushing musicians. Creatively fearless, these artists possess a relentless obsession to perfect their sound, inspiring players of all generations and genres of music. With artistry and expressive power, Amythyst Kiah manages to weave together many strands of American music. Born in Chattanooga, TN, and first inspired by alt-rock, Amythyst studied bluegrass, old-time, and country in her early twenties before releasing her debut solo album Wary + Strange this year. Pitchfork described her new album, “Kiah’s independent spirit, vast talent, and musical savvy yield dazzling results… Wary + Strange is a rock album that doesn’t play by anyone’s rules but her own.” For more about Amythyst Kiah, visit www.amythystkiah.com.
