"That sound just grabbed me... She's a virtuoso!"
[Victor Wooten, bassist, composer, author and educator]
With a musical background that encompasses almost every western genre (and several others!), Canadian cellist and singer-songwriter Alyssa Wright combines the soul of jazz with the technical facility of her classical training, constantly pushing boundaries both real and imagined. Once described as "Jacqueline DuPré meets Janis Joplin over wine and whiskey," her rich, arresting contralto, instrumental virtuosity and trademark tone blend with a passionate performance style that will not be soon forgotten.
"The best thing in a woman's voice since Ruthie Foster or Serena Ryder"
[David Zub, concert presenter]
