Biography

Lizz Wright continues her genre-defying journey with Fellowship, a nod to her roots in gospel on the one hand and her gospel of eclecticism on the other. Beginning with the ecumenical Me’Shell N’Degeocello-penned title track, Fellowship is not a traditional genre exercise. While emphasizing a healthy dose of the rousing hymnody Wright grew up singing in the church (she is, indeed, ... Read more in Amazon's Lizz Wright Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding 11 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Let me qualify before you read on. Lizz's style will polarise.
The genere is Jazz, or maybe Folk, then again R'n'B, or maybe....better to make up your own mind, but you won't resist the "haven't I heard this voice somewhere before" emotion. Give the album the space it deserves, listen without the prejudice and you'll find a quite exceptional performance delivering one of the finest musical hours of the last decade.
Lizz is a challenge to pidgeon-hole, but a development of the Tracy Chapman theme might be as close as it is generous to both.
Alternatively take an edgy precocious rasp from Sheryl Crow, stone bake it until the rooster crows and you might just have the opposite side of the same spectrum.

Very difficult to spot a single standout track, and all are sufficiently durable to warrant several plays before you become over-familiar. Take the middle third of the Album and you'll find four tracks that point North, South, East and West in quick succession.
The whole show is deliciously acoustic, real blokes and gals, impossibly adorned with facial hair(irrespective of gender)skillfully sawing and lashing at wooden boxes of all shapes and string with a single thought in their mind - Performance.
We arrive to find Ms. Wright at the top of her game. Tempered, but never temperamental, paitent and ultimately smoothed. Lizz delivers each track with just what it needs and not an ounce more. No overbearing self indulgent howling, but the deepest emotional connect from someone who lives and breathes the blues.
At times luscious, but always delicately produced, this is a beautifully musical piece of cajun magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wright on! 18 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
Lizz Wright has a terrific voice which she uses to really good effect on jazz, soul and R&B songs. The tracks on this CD were penned by a variety of song writers, including three by Lizz herself, which provide a platform for her to show off the full range of her vocal talents. US guitarist Bill Frisell guests on three of the tracks including the title track written and sung by Ms Wright. For anyone not familiar with Lizz Wright, this CD would be a good starting point to become acquainted with her distinctive singing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lizz Wright 8 Mar 2011
By kareng
Format:Audio CD
Having heard one of Lizz Wright's tracks whilst having lunch in a seafront bistro, it stirred my imagination.

I set about finding out who the dulcet tones were coming from and it transpired to be a singer I had never heard of before.

Having purchased her album "Dreaming Wide Awake" via Amazon, I have to say that I am totally impressed with my new "find".

I shall most certainly be purchasing more of this artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anne's review of Lizz 2 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Very bluesy - I like it, however the style is not original. Lizz sounds very much like another one of my favourite artists (name not mentioned). Good background music.
