The Orchard by Lizz Wright

The largely self-penned The Orchard finds Wright mining her own experience to create an unmistakably personal musical statement. The warmth and resonance of Wright's gospel-trained contralto is matched by the intimacy and authority of such original compositions as “Coming Home," “My Heart," “Another Angel" and “When I Fall." Wright's interpretive skills are equally impressive on revelatory readings of the Ike and Tina Turner classic “I Idolize You," Sweet Honey in the Rock's “Hey Mann," the Led Zeppelin ballad “Thank You" and Patsy Clines haunting “Strange."
