John Wright has made a recording of 11 original selections, one cover and an arrangement of traditional Irish jigs. This work represents his own musical diversity and perhaps has a small piece of all the musicians with whom he has had the honor of working.
"...Being a bass player, I particularly enjoyed John Wright''s playing... He''s really good..." - Dave Pegg, bassist, Jethro Tull/Fairport Convention.
Announcing the release of "Just Left of Center," the aptly titled second release from Twin Cities based bass player/singer-songwriter John Wright. Best known for his bass playing work with such artists as: New Age guitarist Billy McLaughlin, prog-rockers Us, the blues-based Rhythm Doctors and Celtic rockers The Stuart Martz Band, John has most recently expanded his resume to include Midwestern pop hero Tim Mahoney and roots rockers Kevin Bowe and The Okemah Prophets.
Spanning the musical spectrum with influences ranging from Pete Seeger to King Crimson, from Fairport Convention to The Dixie Dregs, "Just Left of Center" is an adventurous folk rock based CD pushing the envelope of the genre. Appropriate for fans of good songs as well as good musicianship, "Just Left of Center" is a fresh approach to the world of folk rock.
