Kat Wright 2023
Kat Wright, Bob Wagner (guitar) and Josh Weinstein (bass) lean into their trio
Kat Wright, Bob Wagner (guitar) and Josh Weinstein (bass) lean into their trio formation, showcasing their folky / rootsy selves, all stripped down, a triangulation of their strengths, their bareness, their imperfect humanness, their voices, their ferocious tenderness, their love of songs and singing and story.
Burlington Vermont’s own sensational soul singer, Kat Wright is returning to SHOWROOM on December 10. Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Wright sings gently like a heartache's apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … as it should.
