Biography

Guitarist/vocalist/composer Dusty Wright occupies an odd market in music, in line with the selection of his function, which encompasses from Byrds-like psychedelic folk excursions to dense, dark-toned feeling items that recall the John Cale period within the Velvet Underground’s background. Indeed, hearing some his recordings simultaneously, one has got the impression of “Michael Nesmith At Max’s Kansas Town” with a (pre-acid casualty) Syd Barrett seated in. Elevated and informed in Akron, Ohio, using a B.A. in Great Arts, believe it or not, he shifted through bands like the Trolls and continued to discovered the Bastards of Execution. Two even more rings, the Dusty Diamond jewelry as well as the Wright Brothers, implemented, before Wright proceeded to go solo. It had been there that he discovered his own tone of voice (or voices), which encompassed components of musical Americana which range from Jimmie Rodgers to Nesmith’s cosmic nation experiments. Wright provides created anthems to well-known sports (“Football (America’s Video game)”) and arranged such roots rock and roll and nation bands because the Bush Hogs as well as the Cement Canyon Cowboys, and in addition plunged into artier straits with GIANTfingers, a chamber-folk quartet that recall the first Velvet Underground. Wright’s concept record Dust! can be an astounding accomplishment, sort of such as a drug experience just better, managing to coherently (and wittily and charmingly) trip across nation, blues, psychedelic, and space-rock sound-scapes.
