Sticks & Strings, the latest release from EG Kight captivated me upon the first listen. Kight’s beautifully-crafted songs are decorated with southern charm and immerse me with in wave of mesmerizing grace. Backed with her “boys” lead guitarist Ken Wynn and drummer/percussionist Gary Porter, the ensemble also features guest bassist Sean Williams on five tracks.
For starters, Kight introduces a melodic bowlful of slow-simmered blues on “Talk to Me”. Her vocals are lovely as ever as Porter pulls double-duty on drums and harp. I absolutely adore her beautifully-performed cover of Gregg Allman’s “Come and Go Blues”. With each listen of “God, Goats and Guitars”, I want to return for second helpings. “Changes Coming Down” is a solid favorite as Kight chronicles the human condition in the ways of Earth’s seasonal cycles. With dobro in hand, Porter plays this with a subtle finesse on slide. The song is downright amazing.
Sticks & Stones is a breathtaking listen which one will want to revisit over and over.
