“Sometimes” Imani Wj Wright Has to Do It His Way

by The Alchemist

Imani Wj Wright is someone who we’ve been very impressed with in recent time. 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, “Sometimes” and you can hear the influence from his classical music training. The main piano melody that continues throughout the song has a dark feel to it, that is complemented by the lyricism to make the listener really connect with the song. The instrumental portion is very simple, but leads a ton of room for his vocals to stand out. Check out the track below.
