“ . . . Big, fat tone, warm vibrato, nice building of tension and release . . . some kickass blues playing and loads of fun to listen to . . .” 

– Bruce Iglauer, President of Alligator Records


” . . . Wright (has a) naturally bluesy voice . . . a semi-shouting mezzo soprano that’s reminiscent in its approach to Ruth Brown and Dinah Washington . . . (she doesn’t) just sing the blues, (she) feel(s) them as well.”

– George “Blues Fin Tuna” Fish, Blues Blast Magazine
