Dusty Wright Plays Make Music New York
Dusty Wright is singer-songwriter based in New York City. His brand of Americana music includes touches of psychedelic and indie rock. His influences include everyone from Ryan Adams to Warren Zevon. He’s currently working on his 7th album entitled Gliding Towards Oblivion.
“Every inch of the album we not only hear but experience a songwriter that pens songs with vibrancy and intelligence.”
Wright has been making and releasing joyful noise since the late ‘80s. A veteran of the music scene, he’s played just about every venue in New York including his favorites CBGB’s, Beacon Theatre, Lakeside Lounge, The Triad Theatre, and the Shrine. He’s been the bandleader of the grunge-punk Bastards of Execution, kids-music-for adults The Trolls, the psych-folk quintet The Dusty Diamonds, the alt-country Wright Brothers, the folk-rock quartet GIANTfingers, and finally as a solo artist. His music can be found in the films Ghost Town (Ricky Gervais), The Andy Warhol Story documentary, Just Add Water (Danny DeVito), and more. Moreover, he’s contributed cool covers and original compositions to the Led Zeppelin tribute The Song Retains The Name (SafeHouse), Ron English’s English 101 tribute, Robert Plant’s Plant Waves tribute, Springsteen tribute One Step Forward, Nolan Ryan tribute, and the new James Lyons Poetry Project album set for a late August release. He’s released 6 albums that are available all over the digital landscape. He loves playing Gretsch guitars through Tyler amps; it’s a tone thing.
