Acclaimed vocalist Lizz Wright is a steward of American music, bringing brilliant color and vibrancy to original works and compositions by some of the greatest songwriters of our time.

Wright, who has released six critically acclaimed albums, has received widespread acclaim as one of the most venerable singers of her generation. The New York Times has described her voice as "a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon or butter-soft leather."

Wright's new album, Grace, was released by the Concord label on September 15, 2017 and features stirring renditions of songs by Ray Charles, Allen Toussaint, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, k.d. lang, Bob Dylan, and more.
