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

From her breakout Verve debut album Salt to her latest viral success with a rendition of “The Nearness Of You” [new music video released in advance of Wright’s appearance at The Apollo Theater (Oct. 22, 2016) celebrating Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial birthday has more than 1.5 million views on Facebook], Wright lives life filled with beautiful possibilities centered on the power of song.
