Lauded American singer Lizz Wright’s latest project, GRACE, reveals the web of deep running roots of story and song that bind together the vastly diverse traditions that are the soul of the American South. Wright summons her Southern heritage and the spirit of the earth to usher us into a nurturing space that pulses and hums with the unspoken suggestion that grace is a cornerstone of our original state of being.
Produced by acclaimed singer and songwriter Joe Henry, GRACE is a stark reflection of Wright’s sense of place and belonging that’s deeply woven into the cultural fabric of America. GRACE is set for national release on Concord Records on Friday, September 15, 2017.
