Biography


"I grew up in a musical household, so I was inevitably influenced by my upbringing..."

Something in that ballpark would usually be the sentiments by a singer/songwriter as talented as Krys Wright. However, the reality of Wright's beginnings is far from typical. Born in Heidelberg, Germany to an African-American father and a Korean mother, Wright spent much of her childhood trying to make sense of her identity as a bi-racial army brat who was often surrounded by kids that looked nothing like her. And although she was blessed to have two parents who nourished her character, she was never raised in an artistically-enriched environment.

After blowing away the audience at her high school graduation in Busan, South Korea, Wright had her sites set on returning to the US with plans of continuing her education and staking her claim in the music industry. After a brief stint studying at Arizona State University, Wright knew that manifesting her dreams would require a more suitable environment and decided Los Angeles will be her playground. Wright continues to leave a lasting impression in L.A.'s competitive market by regularly performing at noteworthy venues like House of Blues, Key Club, and The Roxy Theater to name a few. However her brand reaches far beyond the city limits, as she has also partook in tour dates around Europe, Asia the Middle East and consistent dates at the Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas Book & Stage.

Currently, Wright has released her project "Metro Lovers" which includes visuals for her single "Too Late'. Wright spent months locked away with producers Sean McCarthy (Jonas Bros., Angelique Kidjo, Anthony Hamilton) and Jacob Luttrell (Cee lo Green, Chris Brown, Skrillex, Enrique Iglesias). Now with a debut EP 'Metro Lovers' and a growing fan base, Krys has all her ducks in a row and is ready to share her story.
