Southern Fried presents Darrell Scott/Amythyst Kiah Darrell Scott is not only one of the finest songwriters in Nashville, but a stunning singer, a phenomenal guitar player and a gifted multi-instrumentalist to boot. His songs have been covered by Suzy Boggus, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Kathy Mattea, Maura O'Connell, Guy Clark and most notably The Dixie Chicks with Long Time Gone. From Johnson City Tennessee, Amythyst Kiah describes herself as a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer-songwriter whose influences span decades and diverse styles. Combining rhythm and blues, country and old-time covers alongside startling originals with an angular contemporary twist, she bestrides both the antique and the modern with complete authority. Recent performances in the US, where her star is very much on the rise, include special guest slots with Rhiannon Giddens, Indigo Girls, Old Crow Medicine Show and Valerie June.
