    Lizz Wright is a vocalist of deep composure and luxurious resonance, which she equally draws from jazz, R"B, Southern folk, country blues and the singer-songwriter movement to which she belongs. But her foundation lies in rural Georgia and the gospel church, a legacy she directly addressed with her album Fellowship in 2010.

    Her potent new release, Freedom " Surrender (Concord), pivots toward a more sensual sort of uplift, without dislodging Wright from her essential bearings. It's an album born of emotional hardship and inner transformation, made over a period of two years.

    “Lizz Wright’s voice is a national treasure.” - Upscale Magazine

    LIZZ WRIGHT has been charming music fans worldwide ever since she appeared on the late pianist and composer Joe Sample’s 2002 disc, The Pecan Tree. The following year, she gained even wider recognition for her critically acclaimed debut record, Salt. Her mix of traditional blues, folk, and contemporary pop shows the influence of many genres without fitting comfortably into a single one.
