Lizz Wright belongs to a rare breed of vocalists building on the tradition of Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. A preacher’s daughter who honed her talent singing in gospel choirs, she’s become a matriarch of American Jazz singing. With her deep, warm contralto, she’s won over audiences around the world, recorded 5 critically acclaimed albums and worked with artists like Toots Thielemans and Terri Lyne Carrington. She brings a brilliant vibrancy to her music which transcends style and genre. She synthesizes R&B, Folk, Blues and Gospel with heart wrenching vulnerability.

With her latest album Grace, a homage to her native south, Lizz returns to her blues and gospel roots. The album won critical acclaim, even winning the New York Times Album of the year award. A compelling, response to the divisive 2015 U.S. elections, Grace is a intimate album that bridges social divides, touching out to audiences with a deep sense of humanity.
