That Lizz Wright's roots lie in the deep south of America, can be heard in all her songs: they range from a sultry heat to a spiritual depth. Things have been on a roll for Wright since she was noticed because of her warm contribution to a Billie Holiday tribute. She received a contract with a record company, performed all over the United States, went on a promotional tour in Europe, sang at various festivals and was acclaimed in music magazines as a promising vocalist. Her debut album Salt was a rather soulful album that included jazz and R&B, its successor Dreaming Wide Awake tunes into the singer-songwriter tradition with quiet, spiritual songs that move in the grey areas between country pop, blues and jazz. Her recently released The Orchards, where she sings about the places of her youth in Georgia, contains a number of soulful writings that blend languid soul and R&B.
