Acclaimed jazz vocalist Lizz Wright brings brilliant color and vibrancy to original works and compositions by some of the greatest songwriters of our time. Through an inimitable voice that The New York Times touts as, “a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather,” Wright sings with a soaring reflection of the cultural fabric of America.
Wright has garnered widespread attention as one of the most venerable popular singers of her generation through the release of five critically acclaimed albums. From her breakout debut album “Salt” to her forthcoming album “Grace”, she lives life filled with beautiful possibilities centered on the power of song.
At the age of 22, Wright made a name for herself nationally as a vocalist with a touring concert tribute to Billie Holiday, where her poised performance stole the show. At 23, she signed with Verve Records for the release of “Salt,” which topped Billboard’s contemporary jazz charts. Her subsequent albums continued to top the charts and her latest single “Lean In” landed on former President Barack Obama’s 2016 Summer Playlist.
