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 crowdpleaser with soul to spare.

“Victor Wainwright, winner of this year’s Pine Top Perkins Piano Player Award at the BMAs, 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 fire 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 supergroup can’t simply be shrugged off. Altogether, the roughneck laid back ways of this fine 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"
