Wright plays a mix of originals and covers from her 'Dreaming Wide Awake':
- "A Taste of Honey"
- "Hit the Ground"
Vocalist Lizz Wright debuted in 2003 with the album Salt, an eclectic mix of traditional jazz, R&B, and folk songs. Her latest album is Dreaming Wide Awake, featuring several original songs along with some inspired covers -- including a version of Neil Young's "Old Man."
To enhance her singer-songwriter approach, Lizz Wright moved to guitar for her second album.
On her new CD, Wright continues to expand her gifts and technical training, moving toward the more personal sound of a singer-songwriter.
That choice is evident in her work on Neil Young's music, as well as on the lounge classic "A Taste of Honey" and her own "Trouble." The latter song represents her first efforts on guitar; previously, Wright had written for piano.
