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 Amythyst Kiah, visit: www.amythystkiah.com

Bringing new life to time-tested twang, Nikki Lane blazes a trail through mid-century country soundscapes like they’re back roads she’s known all her life. She came to songwriting sideways, moving to Nashville after working in fashion in Los Angeles and a rough breakup in New York–twists and turns and miles that shape her lush, stylish, bare-knuckle songs. Nikki Lane’s stunning third album Highway Queen is available now and sees the young Nashville singer emerge as one of country and rock’s most gifted songwriters. Rolling Stone described her album as “Inspirations cased in a streetwise, modern shell that’s as unapologetic as Johnny Cash’s middle finger.” For Nikki Lane, visit: www.nikkilane.com.

Gibson built its first “Super Jumbo” SJ-200 as a custom order for country and western singer and film star Ray Whitley, who desired a big, loud, and deep flat-top over which to croon. The SJ-200 quickly became a staple of cowboy singers and horseback troubadours, and then country music, 60’s folk stars, and onto every acoustic guitar genre that has followed. Ray would be proud to hear the booming sound from the Gibson Player Port™ on the new G-200, which comes ready for the stage or studio with a LR Baggs™ Element Bronze pickup system.
