Imani Wj Wright, a 19 year old artist from Baltimore, has been cultivating his musical skills and talents for the past 12 years. His growth as a musician includes his time on scholarship at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins, where he was honored with an "Outstanding Performance" award, and The Lyric Opera House of Baltimore, where he wrote an opera titled "Industrial Love." He also spent an extensive stint at American University under the auspices of the Washington National Opera. Additionally, he was unanimously voted Male Singer of the Year at his high school. Along with those accomplishments, Imani has also had mentoring from Grammy respected artists such as Khalid and Bilal. Through his various experiences in music, Imani has developed an eclectic sound that is undeniably of his unique creation. However, as pleasing as the sound is here, the listener is also dually challenged to delve deeply into the messages, ideas, and vociferous claims of this young artist.
"Imani Wj Wright’s almost nonchalant treatment of the themes in his songs and the knowledge of his own artistic capabilities, seems fresh, awe-inspiring, and at times, even scary. And it is all laced inside some of the most mind-blowing R&B production we’ve heard in years."
-Buddy Nelson, Music critic
"In Wright’s vocals, I can hear instincts like you’d find from the great purple Prince himself, in amongst a tremendously cool display of all-things R&B and genuinely honest performance..."
"Wright approaches music from the standpoint of transparency and often positions his music for the listener to partake in his deliberate maneuvers of intellectual discourse. To engage in Wright’s music, is to be baptized in a spring of universal complexities."
