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. While emphasizing a healthy dose of the rousing hymnody Wright grew up singing in the church (she is, indeed, the daughter of a Georgia pastor), the album borrows from the decidedly secular catalogs of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Gladys Knight.

EXPAND FULL BIO

There was never any question that Fellowship would be a mixture of standards known to the African-American church along with some redefining choices. I definitely needed to represent where I came from, but I also needed to say something now. When I was considering possibilities for covers, I thought it would be great if I approached the work of contemporaries like Joan and Me’shell.’

Growing up in the Pentecostal church, Wright wasn’t allowed to listen to popular music. Oddly-or maybe serendipitously-the historic night when she really made the leap from her early musical life to her present one involved putting a secular spin on a spiritual.

Wright has been the recipient of nonstop critical acclaim and ever-increasing audiences ever since her Verve debut, Salt, in 2003. But she’s confounded expectations along the way about what should be expected of an artist, who’s known for topping the jazz charts but is far from most people’s idea of a traditional jazz singer.
