Melodic Scottish pop with a lyrical charm to match the best of them. Aaron Wright brings down the playfulness of his music with the contrast of his dark lyrics.

Biography

Aaron Wright began his musical career like most singer songwriters, travelling around the local pubs and clubs singing everything from woody Guthrie classics to his own tunes and after more of his own tracks started to get a better reception he decided it was time to take it more seriously. After a couple of years of learning his trade on his own Aaron found a record label and a band that believed in his sound as much as he did and so Aaron Wright and The Aprils began. After many shows together they went into the studio to record their debut album which was produced by Francis McDonald (Teenage Fanclub) and includes guest performances from Belle and Sebastian, Camera Obscura with the mix of collaborations and influences of the likes of Dylan and Neil Young the album has a good mix of old and new. Also after playing many of the festivals this summer from Glastonbury, Benicassim, T in The Park to Lattitude they certainly feel they are starting to prove themselves at a bigger level.
