ACCLAIMED VOCALIST LIZZ WRIGHT
SIGNS WITH CONCORD MUSIC GROUP

Produced by Larry Klein, September 8, 2015 Concord debut
features collaborations with Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp,
J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon and Jesse Harris

Concord Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of acclaimed vocalist Lizz Wright. Wright is currently recording in Los Angeles on what will be her first album since 2010’s critically lauded Fellowship. The as-yet-untitled album is scheduled for release on September 8, 2015.

Lizz Wright possesses a remarkable ability to sing in multiple styles, including soul, jazz and gospel. Produced by Larry Klein, her Concord debut will feature a mix of cover songs along with collaborations with such noted songwriters as Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp, J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon and Jesse Harris.

“Lizz is an extraordinary artist and we are very proud to welcome her to the Concord family,” said Mark Wexler, General Manager/Senior Vice President, Concord-Telarc Group. “We all look forward to working with her in this next chapter of her ever-evolving career.”

Known for topping the jazz charts, Wright is far from most people’s idea of a traditional jazz singer. She grew up in Georgia and began singing gospel music at a young age, thanks to her father, a pianist and musical director at the local church. She has been the recipient of nonstop critical acclaim and ever-increasing audiences ever since her Verve debut, Salt, in 2003. Dreaming Wide Awake followed in June 2005. Wright released her third album, The Orchard, in 2008. In 2010, Wright returned with Fellowship, featuring guest performances from bassist Meshell Ndegeocello and vocalist Angélique Kidjo.
