In a world full of rock stars, pop stars and boybands, Danny Wright stands out for many reasons. Danny Wright is a true artist, who has previously fronted the successful Reading-based rock bands We Are Lost Boys (2010 – 2014) and DissolvedIN (2007- 2010). After conquering the rock world, Danny decided it was time to introduce himself to the world of pop music and immediately found himself working alongside acts such as Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs, and Tulisa in his quest to pursue his career in music. Currently writing his debut EP and gigging locally as a solo artist, Danny Wright is certainly set to make a solid stamp upon the industry with his first ever solo project for 2015.
Originally from the small town of Reading, Danny moved to the iconic music hub of Camden Town in London as soon as he possibly could. He knew the only way he would succeed on his journey for success was if he placed himself within in the thick of it all: living, breathing and experiencing life within the captivatingly creative capital city environment.
Danny has been singing and writing in rock bands for years, relentlessly touring the live circuit. He says, “When I was a teenager, all I wanted to do was perform and be the ultimate rock star. I was obsessed with music and performing, after school the first thing I would do was to go into my garage, put my Blink 182 and Green day records on (full blast of course!), and impersonate my idols in front of the mirror for hours”. Danny had formed numerous bands back in his Reading secondary school days, but explains how it wasn’t until mid-way through his college course a few years later down the line that a band he started called DissolvedIN ‘really got serious’ when they were asked to tour Germany, playing to over 2000 people each night. DissolvedIN went on to support iconic bands such as Finch, Saosin, Story of the year, Atreyu, Zebrahead and they also appeared at the legendary hard rock festival Download in Castle Donington. This project took off more than anyone had hoped and was fronted by, founded by, and managed by Danny Wright.
We Are Lost Boys became the next brain child of Danny’s after DissolvedIN parted ways back in 2010. We Are Lost Boys’ hit debut single ‘Tired and Lonely’ was voted Kerrang’s ‘Video of the week’, and saw the band tour across sold-out o2 Academy venues within the UK. It was shortly after the success of both We Are Lost Boys and DissolvedIN that Danny’s passion for song-writing and performing really began to solidify, and he knew this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Now with his first ever solo project in full swing, Danny promises to deliver a real arsenal of relatable life stories through his hard-hitting yet catchy music, which delves deep into his personal experiences of life, his fear of growing up, and the pursuit of chasing dreams.
A self-taught, self-made writer, singer, actor and model, Danny Wright is an all-round creative and shouldn’t be restricted to just one role. “I don’t want to be judged on what creative category you think I might fall into, I want to be judged on whether or not you like my music and my whole ethos – which you will hopefully be able to relate to. If you like it, wicked! If you don’t, oh well. I’m a passionate person that just wants the world to hear my songs, and I’m going to carry on writing until I have nothing left to write about!”
