Event Navigation

Without a doubt, Anthony Ray Wright is a player’s kind of musician. He left high school after only one week to gig full time playing lead guitar, drums and bass – and he stayed busy. Still a teenager, Anthony Ray jammed with Funk Bass legend Bootsy Collins and he recorded an unreleased single at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. In Seattle, Washington, he supported an upcoming act live on KEXP, a nationally respected Indie music tastemaker station. He knew he wasn’t just a side guy. It was in the remote West Texas desert town of Alpine that Anthony poured his focus into fronting his own act. Locally the show was an instant hit.

After recording his first album, he relocated to Austin, Texas, “Live Music Capitol of the World”. He truly found his people there. On tour across the states and Canada, he grabbed the attention of some big names. Anthony Ray Wright has opened for Ray Wylie Hubbard, Dale Watson, and the legendary Billie Joe Shaver, just to name a few. In 2022, Wright honored the legacy of Johnny Cash by playing in a tribute at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee.

Anthony Ray Wright has released two full length albums: The Foolish Anthony Ray Wright (2021) and A Country Music Album (2023). In addition, he has many popular single releases including “Foolish Minded” and “Parking Lot Whiskey”.

Jonathan Knight works for a New York City ad agency. A member of the band DFONTE. Takes photos of things. Studied film scoring at NYU with David Spear (orchestrator for Elmer Bernstein).

Released a solo album in Jan 2024: FRAGMENTS OF A LIFE.
