Amythyst Kiah Makes Late Night Tv Debut Performing “Black Myself” On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Amythyst Kiah Makes Late Night Tv Debut Performing “Black Myself” On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

New track Hangover Blues available everywhere now - HERE 


Last night (5.6), Amythyst Kiah made her late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing her Grammy-nominated song, “Black Myself.” Watch the full performance above and here.

“Black Myself” is the lead single off her forthcoming album and Rounder Records debut Wary + Strange out June 18th. The radically reimagined version of her Grammy-nominated song departs from the mid-tempo acoustic original recorded by Our Native Daughters, the all-women-of-color supergroup she co-founded with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell. The track has been hailed by The New York TimesRolling StoneMTVBillboard, and NPR, who called it a “breakthrough for an artist on the rise.” The accompanying video for “Black Myself” debuted on MTVBET and CMTplatforms. Watch here.

Today (5.7), Amythyst shares the third track from Wary + Strange, “Hangover Blues.” The track documents a tumultuous period in her late 20’s when she took up drinking in order to ease the social anxiety that had plagued her since childhood. Featuring production by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Amos Lee, Andrew Bird), and a brilliantly untethered guitar performance from Blake Mills (Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes), “Hangover Blues'' perfectly captures the angst of being stuck in a bad habit, its swampy rhythms echoing the sticky unease of morning-after regret.




“She revisits [“Black Myself”] with a fuller studio production, reinforcing its distorted guitar with more effects, more layers and a bigger beat, adding extra clout”

The New York Times

“Breakthrough for an artist on the rise”


“Amythyst Kiah is done hiding in plain sight...a stunning original”


“Raw and strong” 


“Talented Black Musical Artists on the Rise in 2021” 


“Blistering… a must-listen about living in the land of white privilege” 


“Brutal and beautiful… her voice is admirably resilient” 

Consequence of Sound

“‘Black Myself’ shows the beauty of Blackness while still highlighting the injustices––past and present––that Black people are faced with today.” 

The Root

"Amythyst Kiah is an original. Holding nothing back. The message and the music punch you right in the gut.” 

Bob Lefsetz 

"Channels emotion into palpable and impassioned rock energy… bluesy, dramatic, and fervently soulful”
