Nelson Wright: CD Release
Nelson Wright's newest album, Orphans & Relics, captures nine different corners of American music in its nine tracks. Nelson taps into country blues, rockabilly, traditional jazz, folk revival, electric blues and more to ground his vivid storytelling and melodic craftsmanship, resulting in a true Americana album.

Seattle-based, Nelson has spent most of his musical life in bandsfolk bands, roots rock bands, bluegrass bandsbut his solo career started in 2012 with the release of Still Burning, an album of ten original songs that harkened back to his folk music days and elicited great reviews ("..it's poetic, it's melodic, it's timeless," wrote Jean-Jacques Corrio in Le Cri du Coyote).

His attachment to Americana started in rural upstate New York, where roots music got under his skin and sparked his playing, writing, and gigging. Inspiration came from earlier generations of folk musicianslike Dave Van Ronk, Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis, and the young Bob Dylanwho haunted the coffeehouses of New York City's Greenwich Village.

Orphans & Relics was produced by Michael Thomas Connolly, and recorded on two-inch analog tape at Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County, CA, capturing a sound that is vintage, alive, and organiclike the American music that inspired it.
