Lizz Wright

Rob introduced me to her music many years ago. Her voice is like buttah. Just beautiful and calming and soulful. The first I saw her live was at Schubas Tavern here in Chicago a couple years back. I was stunned that first time. She has an amazing live voice and her stage presence is hauntingly comfortable.

We saw her again just last week. As we were waiting to get into the venue we struck up a conversation with the woman behind us in line. She made a statement that I think is so true. She said something along the lines of, "She's lived many lives to develop a voice like that". Her comment really stuck with me because I think it's true. I think she's an old soul.

I took a few pictures with my point-and-shoot. It was dark and I wasn't really close so I had to do some editing of the photos to clean them up a bit. Here are a few pics followed by a YouTube video of one of my favorite songs by Lizz. Click the pics to enlarge. Enjoy!

Like buttah!


  1. Her voice IS like buttah! I'll have to get me a CD of hers. Thanks, I love her voice! And I'd never heard of her before.

  2. You’re welcome! She really is fantastic. I’ve been listening to her non-stop since the show.

  3. wow, beautiful voice, beautiful woman. I hadn't heard of her either. Thanks for sharing!
