E.G. Kight Finds Southern Hospitality...in southern Norway

E.G. Kight
E. G. Kight writes: I got home from a European tour last week, and I was pooped, but feeling really warm inside reflecting on my trip. Though it was hard work at times, with incredibly long days, I did do a lot of traveling and got to see the German countryside. We also did a show in Kristiansand, Norway, and I fell in love with that country as well.

“In Norway my touring band, Blue Alley and I joined forces with a Norwegian blues band called Rita's Lolitas. They are really fine musicians, and we had a great time with them. The day after the show they took us sightseeing, then wined and dined us up right. They really showed us some southern hospitality - south Norway that is! I feel like I made some lifelong friends in Norway.”


Newport RI - - Bring Peace Not Pain, a multifaceted grassroots initiative with an international following that is dedicated to fostering peace and global citizenship is pleased to announce that EG Kight has been chosen as a TOP TEN finalist from the PEACE SONG CHALLENGE. The challenge received submissions representing many musical genres from all areas of the US as well as India, the UK, Australia and Pakistan.

In believing that music has the unique ability to transcend social and geographical barriers, Bring Peace Not Pain, with the support of musical instrument leader Gibson Guitar, launched the Peace Song Challenge in an effort to create a platform for individuals to share their messages of peace through their music.

After a rigorous selection process, the top ten musical compilations were presented to the panel of legendary producers and music industry elite who compose the judges of this year’s contest. These top ten songs will be competing for the first place prize of an exclusive Gibson Guitar as well as the opportunity to spread the word of Peace through their very own words on an international platform of publicity and promotion.

This year's judges include legendary producer Bob Ezrin, who for 38 years has worked with some of the world's greatest musicians, has co-founded Music Rising with U2's the Edge, and sits on the board of numerous music related philanthropic organizations; popular musician and songwriter Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, recipient of the 2003’s World Award, the 2004 Man for Peace Award, and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace; award winning filmmaker Thavi Phrasavath, whose most recent film “The Betrayal” was nominated for an Academy Award in 2009; President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Terry Stewart; and music manager Anastasia Brown, who has worked with such mega-stars as Sting and Peter Frampton, and whose Nashville based media company finances and produces feature films in partnership with some of Hollywood’s top producers and studios.
