David Wright & Carys started performing together in 2012; composing music that would later appear on the album ‘Beyond the Airwaves Vol 2’. Their first collaborative album, ‘Prophecy’, described as; “A journey from the ocean to the stars”, was released in 2017, followed by the iTunes single, ‘Call to Me’, and a series of successful European concerts.
Both artists have strong credentials. David Wright is a veteran of the electronic music scene with over 50 albums released since the late 1980’s that display a wide range of influences. Wright peppers his impressionistic compositions with rock, classical and world flavours, resulting in a diverse range of moods that have been favourably compared to Mike Oldfield, Kitaro, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream.
Carys is an established singer/songwriter on the UK acoustic scene with an enthusiastic and evocative stage presence. She displays a natural charm that has won her many admirers, not just within the folk/rock scene, but also far beyond it. Her debut album, ‘A Different Kind Of Normal’, is a successful fusion of folk, rock and electronica.
Together, David Wright & Carys combine to create beautiful musical soundscapes that are both emotionally engaging and intellectually stimulating; melodic and thematic music that tells a story, with or without words.
They merge the layered, otherworldly voice of Carys with David’s synths and rhythms in an original and captivating style that has been described as “Vangelis meets Enya”.
