Lizz Wright is a vocalist of uncommon talent and spirit.  Fresh off her new album, GRACE, she has been compared to artists such as Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, k.d. lang and Diana Krall.  Produced by Americana icon Joe Henry, GRACE marks Wright’s follow-up to her 2015 album, Freedom & Surrender, on Concord Records. GRACE is an expansive collection of 10 covers where Wright summons her Southern heritage for a stark reflection on her sense of place and belonging that’s deeply woven into the cultural fabric of America. Sliding effortlessly between jazz, R&B, gospel, blues and folk, the Georgia-reared singer has built a career centered on her smoky, supple voice and an earthy/ethereal style.  Lizz Wright gained recognition for her critically acclaimed debut record, Salt, produced by the legendary Tommy LiPuma – best known for his award-winning work with George Benson, Diana Krall, and Natalie Cole.  The album helped introduce Wright as one of the most captivating female vocalists of her generation as it raced to number two on Billboard’s “Top Contemporary Jazz” chart.

Saxophonist, singer, and composer Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 24-year-old. Having been a regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Grace Kelly recently released her 10th CD as a leader. The latest album, Trying To Figure It Out, was voted #2 Jazz Album of The Year in the 2016 Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll.  In 2016, Grace was also thrilled to join a dynamic 10-piece house band for NBC’s variety show “Maya & Marty,” starring Maya Rudolph and Martin Short and produced by Lorne Michaels.  Learn more about Grace Kelly at gracekellymusic.com, or follow Grace on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
