Victor Wainwright's musical style was described by theAmerican Blues Scene Magazine as "honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder. Wainwright's playing is simply beautiful madness." He won the Pinetop Perkins 'Piano Player of the Year' in 2013 and 2014 at the Blues Music Awards. Also in 2013, his collaborative album, "Easy Livin'," made the Top 10 in the US Billboard Top Blues chart.
Living Blues Magazine noted that "Wainwright serves as an electrifying guide to a good time – spinning tales, telling his listeners how to beat the blues, and meticulously conjuring raw soul and energy out of his acoustic piano."
Though his career began over a decade ago with genuine rock n' roll honky-tonk, Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the blues. His insatiable interest in music discovery, sheer love for entertaining and curiosity have led him all around the world, and the resulting perspective is a reflection of his passion for entertaining and creating progressive roots music in an effort to move the art-form forward. Composer, producer, vocalist, and award wining entertainer and piano player; Victor Wainwright is a raucous high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleaser with soul to spare.
