“evocative and original… soaring, divine” – The Current


Lauded vocalist Lizz Wright encapsulates an illustrious twenty-year career as one of the great modern American singers. Therefore, her most recent album, 2024’s Shadow, was released on her label Blues & Greens Records. On Shadow, Wright pens five originals with special guests Angelique Kidjo and Meshell Ndegeocello. Renowned for her singular writing style across six critically acclaimed studio albums, Wright also beautifully weaves into her recordings unforgettable renditions of songs by artists she loves.

Wright is a true steward of American music. Additionally, she brings brilliant color and vibrancy to singular original compositions by some of the greatest songwriters of our time. The New York Times touts her voice as “a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather”. Moreover, Wright sings with a soaring reflection of the cultural fabric of America.

For the listener, Wright’s songs embody a tradition that allows us to always feel at home. Moreover, Wright culls inspiration from her Southern upbringing in Georgia. She was the musical director of a small church in which her father was the pastor. Gospel music, and the call and response singing with the church congregation, informed her first brushes with music.

Wright has long been dedicated to the long form and the cultivation of a balanced life with strong roots. This brought Wright from New York City to the countryside outside of Asheville, North Carolina. A respite from the bustling city streets, the beautiful mountain woods provide the perfect backdrop for her writing. Rustic hikes and river swimming. Living amongst lovers of the land. Growing essential foods in the garden, and harnessing an appreciation for the earth. Wright lives and breathes with the freshness of the country air. In turn, her music remains vital and dynamic growing along with nature’s elements.
