Hip shaking, soul gyrating root rockers of the 50's, 60's and 70's influenced the penning of singer/song writer J.T. Wright’s debut album Number Nine Cloud. Melding together Delta blues, 60's British rock, southern rock, roots country, and some of greatest rock n’ roll ever, J.T. provides a direct link from the history of roots country rock to the keen musical ears of the 21st century. His soul is old and his music deep; he's almost too young to be this 'rootsy' claim those who know him best. The breakthrough debut album Number Nine Cloud is a collection of original country-rock songs infused with a mix of roots, blues and British influences. Summoning the spirits of Rock n' Roll's originators, His music dwells from a deeper part of music history. "We're all storytellers" he says and Underneath the Sun tells the stories of his historical influences, particularly Buddy Holly, Muddy Waters and Roy Orbison. Written while driving down Hwy 61 near Robert Johnson's infamous 'crossroads', "It's a blues song that happens to rock" explains J.T.
Number Nine Cloud is a collaboration with Austin producer/guitarist Mac McNabb (Soulhat, Trish Murphy) and features drummer, Barry "Frosty" Smith (Lee Michaels, Soulhat, Alejandro Escobedo, Delbert McClinton).
