Victor Wainwright is an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. In 2013 and 2014, Wainwright won the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year' at the Blues Music Award ceremonies. Also in 2013, his collaborative album, Easy Livin' , made the Top 10 in the US Billboard Top Blues Album chart.
Wainwright's musical style was described by the American Blues Scene magazine in 2013 as "honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder. Wainwright's playing is simply beautiful madness."
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.
