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 award winning piano player, Victor Wainwright is a raucous, high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleaser with soul to spare. Among his claims to fame: 2016 Blues Music Award Nominee, BB King Entertainer of The Year, Band of The Year, Piano Player of The Year, 2015 Boom Town Billboard Top 10 #5, 2013 and 2014 Piano Player of The Year (BMA). With the release of Boom Town, their latest record, the band is certain to ignite blues-roots fans with a flame they can’t explain.
