Lizz Wright – The Orchard: Album Review
Written by The Theorist (K.E.H.)   

R&B Soul reviews Forget skyscrapers, cell phones, crowded streets, and frenetic yellow taxi cabs because Lizz Wright’s full thick warm voice is going to infiltrate your senses like the first bite of southern cornbread straight out the oven.  

A listen to The Orchard washes away urban culture and fills your mind with the nostalgic sounds of life in the country.

“Coming Home,” the first track, escorts you to a bluesy-spiritual song with a melody that sounds like the Negro spiritual “I Want Jesus To Walk With Me” in the middle of a acoustic guitar and live drum groove. This flavor of music is also in, “I Idolize You,” and “Leave Me Standing Alone,” where the blues style flirts with a hip-hop attitude and rockin’ bass lines. Speaking of flirting and attitudes, the punchy bass line and mild calypso rhythm in “My Heart” tempts you to twirl a little - no wonder Ms. Wright uses this track to tell that special someone “I see that I’m falling in love again” even though “sometimes I wanna give you up.”

Most of the tracks on this album like “Hey Mann,” “My Angel,” and “When I Fall,” are relaxing acoustical instrumentations. But you could never fall asleep on Lizz Wright because she sings powerfully like Alicia Keys, giving every song all she got. The Orchard is a soulful/country/blues cocktail. Get ready for a spiritual and emotional catharsis.

Download:  “My Heart,” “I Idolize You, ” “When I Fall,” “Leave Me Standing Alone,” “Speak Your Heart”
