Described by Happy Mag "With a brooding and soulful folk tone, Wright is walking in the footsteps of Australian folk greats Angus Stone and Lisa Mitchell."

Originally from Canberra, the first few years of his music career were spent busking and travelling along the South Coast of NSW. Playing at pubs all over regional Australia his first tour in 2018 took him to the likes of Melbourne, Sydney and all the way to Brisbane.
