“““Starlight Navigator” is an album stacked with ideas but not crowded by them. Wright and his voice have the spotlight, which lets the stories about people staring down a choice between light and dark develop cleanly. His sound, a spin on Americana that leans more toward city than country, is gently tweaked by White’s spare use of atmospherics.” It’s a record that sounds as if it were made by people, not machines, and those can be surprisingly hard to come by.””
“Alex Wright’s second album shines with depth and inevitable musical maturity. Wright’s gospel music influenced upbringing in eastern Kentucky seeps through the harmonies on American Fall and more so with Ollabelle joining on Life and Living . It’s this sincerity in the project, in the music, in every lyric, track, and live performance that makes Wright’s music important. Universal themes permeate songs like American Fall andWeight of The Day. His synergy with audiences and the talent with which he surrounds himself on stage brings an added layer of depth to his music only a live performance can deliver. This is solid stuff, and an artist whose third project I already anticipate. Until then, let’s bask in the new.”
“Alex Wright and his band have been featured on WFPK and brought in a flock of pretty young girls which is always a good sign. The first song “Weight of This Day” was a slow reflective song that caused me to immediately put Alex into a Ryan Adams box. The next song was “Trouble Comes Around” and featured the band with full power and got the crowd moving. From a slow start to a strong finish of Rock and Roll, complete with a broken string and hand clapping audience, Alex Wright is like Ryan Adams with a Red Bull or 6.”
