Some of the finest singers don’t fit nicely into a box that can be labeled with the name of a single genre. Lizz Wright is one of those vocalists.
Possessed of a uniquely expressive voice, Lizz Wright is now one of the world’s foremost exponents of the art of vocal jazz.
“I tend to enjoy and aspire to make music that feels like a portrait of a place, a moment, a story — something that I suppose could be tucked into a genre if someone insisted,” Wright said.
Gospel was the bedrock of Wright’s musical education. She was once the music director of a small church for which her father was pastor. Later, at Georgia State University in Atlanta, she sang classical repertoire. At The New School in New York City, she studied jazz and spirituals. On her own, she explored folk music and the Great American Songbook.
