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, entertainer and award wining piano player; Victor Wainwright is a raucous high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd-pleaser with soul to spare.

2016 BB King Entertainer of the Year.

2016 Band of the year.

“Victor Wainwright, winner of this year’s Pine Top Perkins Piano Player Award at the BMA’s, is a force to be reckoned with on a piano. He IS honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder. Wainwright’s playing is simply beautiful madness.” American Blues Scene 2013

“Savannah, GA native Victor Wainwright is all about boogie-woogie piano, deep soul, and a voice that recalls Dr. John at his best. He is a rising blues star, a tremendous player.” -Chicago Blues Guide 2013

“Newcomers including Southern Hospitality are putting out albums that are exciting, relevant and visceral. Given the amount of fluff flooding the market today, these acts offer us hope for the future. Wainwright makes himself a tormented presence, his blues as hot as the $re stoked by the band. Damon Fowler, Victor Wainwright, and JP Soars may be relative babes in the woods and swamps, but on the strength of their collaborative Southern Hospitality, the term super group can’t simply be shrugged off Altogether, the roughneck laid back ways of this $ne debut are reminiscent of the best days of Southern rock.” -Hitting the Note Magazine 2013

“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
