Victor Wainwright

The Legacy Of the Doctor

Born in Savannah, Georgia, Victor was surrounded by a musical family as he emulated his dad’s vocals and Grandpa Jessie’s boogie-woogie piano playing. Though his career began more than a decade ago with genuine rock n’ roll honky-tonk, Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope to include music representing virtually every corner of the blues. His high-octane Boogie piano blended with soulful vocals are backed by one of the most gifted bands on the scene – The Wildroots.

Wainwright’s insatiable interest in music discovery, sheer love for entertaining and curiosity have led him all around the world. The resulting perspective is a reflection of his passion for entertaining and creating progressive roots music in an effort to move the blues art form forward.

Composer, producer, vocalist, entertainer and Blues Music Award four time winning piano player, Victor Wainwright is a raucous, high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleaser with soul to spare.

“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.” He displays a sharp sense of humor and a knack for storytelling.... Every track is brilliant.” -Living Blues Magazine
