New Music – Lizz Wright

I have been an admirer of Lizz Wright as a singer and songwriter since her debut album “Salt” was released back in 2003.

 She has now released her fourth album with the apt title “Fellowship” which following her 2008 release “The Orchard” which was predominately self penned (though included a great cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You”), sees her return primarily to her gospel roots.

Most of the songs Wright tackles have been done before. Not all are religious, but in some cases, Wright makes them divine with her vocals — always soulful and full of passion, yet elegant and refined.

Her take on Eric Clapton’s “Presence of the Lord” is stirring, and her rollicking rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s “In From the Storm,” where the handclaps and percussion are at the core, turns it from a fiery love song to a tune about how love triumphs over hardship.
