Wary + Strange shows the Tennessee musician adding doses of rock to her folk, blues, and country stylings on her ROUNDER RECORDS solo debut.  One of the pivotal moments in her career came when her “Black Myself” was nominated for a Grammy in 2019. While she had recorded the song with her bandmates in Our Native Daughters (Rhiannon GiddensLeyla McCalla and Allison Russell), Kiah also knew she wanted to make a recording of the song more reflective of who she was. But like most of the recordings on Wary + Strange, the process to the final version wasn’t easy. Over the course of three years, she recorded the album three different times. It wasn’t until Tony Berg came on board as producer that things began to take shape.

Amythyst Kiah has found a way to live in a world without restrictions. She is, at the end the day, an artist who goes her own way, which is what gives Wary + Strange the qualities that make it a truly great album from an artist who refuses to dwell in a world of limitations.
