Stay away from the dream world of Wil Wright if you're wary of your own nightmares. Cause the ones that this man harbors and has over for sleepovers are doozies. They're monsters and they smother you with creeping vines that will pull on you for days. The sinister things that the Knoxville, Tennessee, musician is riddled with when he sleeps are terribly disturbing and they're just as terribly inspirational and entertaining as we're
welcomed bedside for his séance - an event of great, spectacularly arbitrary substance. - Daytrotter

"The Music Slut"

"Senryu's live show is interactive and messy yet flawlessly calculated. It draws you in and spits you out with undulating waves of dance pop and slower indie melodies" - Jen Kellas

"Metro Pulse"

"Slices of pop confection with just enough accompanying grit and fiber to bring the rock.”
- John Sewell

Standing in a Senryu show there’s always a feeling of magic. For a decade the group has gathered a dedicated national fanbase while staying under the radar. Fans became more than extended family — they became part of the band. Any given concert has fans singing and shouting along with Senryu’s ambitious and infectious songs. For years the group only made its recorded music available at certain concerts for one night, forcing the faithful to trade among themselves. When the and acclaimed full-length album "The Guilty Party Rages On" was released, it was made available only with various art projects — art books, sets of finger puppets, paintings ... and shortly thereafter the group released its entire catalog, including "Guilty Party," online for free at

The group’s high-profile appearances at the Knitting Factory, on the Daytrotter Sessions, South by Southwest and the CMJ Music Marathon, critical accolades, successful tours and praise from fellow artists have helped the band find new friends around the country. The group’s new album "Half Wild," a vibrant song-cycle that’s immediately catchy, but deep and complex enough to keep you coming back to examine its musical and lyrical layers.

Senryu singer-songwriter-guitarist Wil Wright (who also plays guitar in the band Physics of Meaning) says the album is about the transformations we all go through every day, conversations between the dying old you and the new you just being born.

Take a listen. There’s a good chance you’ll recognize you’re not the same person as you were before you heard this band.
