Imani Wj Wright Drops, “So I Thought”

by The Alchemist

Wright is a classically trained 21-year-old musician from Baltimore, Maryland who’s won numerous accolades for his musical skills. One of those accolades being from The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, conferring him with an “Outstanding Performance’’ award. Some of his musical performances also include a headlining show at the Kennedy Centre, on August 24, 2019. This well received performance fused elements of Opera, Jazz, and R&B. It included his most known piece “So I Thought”, and an array of other pieces written by Wright. He also boasts an impressive track record, having performed in 10+ Sofar Sounds cities across the United States, including a scintillating performance at their 10th Anniversary show in Seattle, Washington.

 

His newest track is titled, “So I Thought” and it has an immense amount of soul in the vocals. The production is very simple, yet it’s beautiful in its cleanness. His vocals remind us of Cautious Clay, and we hear a ton of soul in it. It wouldn’t surprise us to see him on NPR Tiny Desk concert soon enough, as he continues to grow. Check out the track below.
