Wright translates with phenomenal fluency between inner awareness and outward demonstration, individual seeking and conscious communion, ecstasy and empathy.
Singer Lizz Wright draws inspiration from her Southern upbringing in Georgia, where she was the musical director of a small church, of which her father was the pastor. At 22 years old, Wright made a name for herself as a vocalist with a touring concert tribute to Billie Holiday, where her poised performances stole the show. At 23, she signed to Verve Records and released Salt, which topped Billboard’s contemporary jazz charts. Her subsequent albums also climbed to the top of the charts, and her single “Lean In,” from Freedom and Surrender, landed on President Obama’s 2016 summer playlist.
Wright sings with a soaring reflection of the cultural fabric of America, transcending social divides with an offer of love and deep sense of humanity. Her music accepts the beauty of reality and a collective experience of belonging, embodying a tradition that allows listeners to always feel at home. Wright’s latest record, Holding Space, is a declaration of independence—it’s the first release on her new, artist-centric independent label, Blues & Greens Records.
