Victor Wainwright and the WildRoots
Blues, Roots Rock and Soul, featuring the high-octane boogie piano and soulful vocals of Victor Wainwright and backed by one of the most gifted bands on the scene: the WildRoots. With the release of BOOM TOWN, their latest record, they’re poised to ignite blues/roots fans with a sound that’s infectious and impossible to ignore.
As Victor and producer/writer Stephen Dees celebrate 10 outstanding years of musical partnership that began with Wainwright's 2005 solo debut PIANA' FROM SAVANNAH, they’re teaming up once again to deliver a blues and American roots tour de force. After the 2011 release of the critically acclaimed record LIT UP!; The WildRoots are back and they're toting another musical triumph in BOOM TOWN.
Born in Savannah, Georgia, Victor's childhood was filled with music. Surrounded by a musical family, Victor found himself emulating his Dad's vocals and Grandfather Jessie's boogie-woogie piano playing. Over the last decade he has broadened his artistic scope to encompass nearly every corner of the Blues. Victor’s star is definitely on the rise, having won the coveted Blues Music Award as “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year” in both 2013 and 2014, as well as anchoring the acclaimed group, Southern Hospitality, whose “Easy Livin’” release made the Top 10 on the Billboard blues chart.
