Lizz Wright Tickets - A Different Kind of R&BThe year 1980 was a good year for the genre of R&B when on January 22, singer Lizz Wright was born in the little Georgia town of Hahira. Her love for music actually reached her at an early age with her father serving as pianist and music director for the local church. It was there that her taste for classical hymns became a part of her spirit. Over time, blues and jazz enveloped her musical repertoire, and in no time Wright was working hard to get a foot in the music industry door by joining the vocal quartet called In the Spirit. It was in the year of 2002 when Verve took notice and inked her a deal for her major solo debut.
Lizz Wright Tickets - The Music of WrightSalt came out the following spring of her label contract signing followed by a 2005 release of Dreaming Wide Awake. In 2008, her third album hit the stores with the name The Orchard on the cover. Some of her best singles include 'Fire,' 'Eternity,' 'Feed the Light,' and 'All the Seeds.'
Lizz Wright Tickets - The Sound and Style of WrightOne thing's for sure: Wright knows how to whisper a voice like gossamer vapor in the wind, breezing the musical stratosphere with her sensual notes. What made her R&B so different, so unique, was the fact that she injected a good dose of jazz and gospel into it. That came from her roots. That's probably one of the more phenomenally good aspects of her, a good aspect of any musician. The ability to always stay close to your roots.
