Manufacturer Description

With Dreaming Wide Awake Lizz Wright more than fulfills the promise of her much-praised 2003 debut, Salt. Evocative songs and rootsy arrangements highlight the beauty of Wright's voice and the soulful honesty of her singing as she journeys deeper into the singer-songwriter tradition. On this powerfully intimate new CD, Lizz Wright radiates authenticity and passion. Verve. 2005.

Lizz Wright’s sophomore release, Dreaming Wide Awake is a gorgeous, floating atmospheric journey. Her deep, rich alto, matched by a similarly incredible depth of emotion, makes for a beautiful, timeless record. Highlights include a bluegrass-tinged cover of Neil Young’s "Old Man," a gorgeously sultry version of Joe Henry’s "Stop" (better known as "Don’t Tell Me," as covered by Madonna), and the Youngbloods' positivity-tipped "Get Together." But not all highlights are cover tunes. Wright, along with songwriter Jesse Harris and Toshi Reagon, created the achingly beautiful "Hit the Ground," while Chocolate Genius (a.k.a. Marc Anthony Thompson) scribed "Chasing Strange," and Wright penned the jazz-tinged title track on her own. --Denise Sheppard
