Soulful Bluesy Female Vocals On Vinyl LP!
Produced by Americana Icon Joe Henry!

On Grace, lauded American singer Lizz Wright summons her Southern heritage and the spirit of the earth to usher us into a nurturing space.  The album is a stark reflection of her sense of place and belonging that's deeply woven into the cultural fabric of America.  Lizz offers one original, written for this record, plus inspiring interpretations of songs from Ray Charles, Bob Dylan & more.

Produced by Joe Henry, (Grace) captures her in the act of lovingly shoring up her relationship with the Southern hamlets and resilient inhabitants that shaped her at a moment of great social and political tumult. She spends the exquisite 10-song collection creating generous space rather than offering commentary.

You can feel the emotional weight of that act in Wright's reading of a ballad associated with Nina Simone and written by Carolyn Franklin, sister and songwriter to Aretha: "Seems I'm Never Tired Lovin' You." There's a profound ampleness to Wright's performance, set off by a churchly choir assembled by her longtime pianist, Kenny Banks. She makes herself fully present to the song's tender sentiment, luxuriating in her phrasing, rounding her tone with openness and equanimity.
