Gary Wright’s Connected

Gary-Wright-Connected70’s space synth pop pioneer Gary Wright has a new album coming out June 8th, Connected.

“I named the album Connected because I believe we are all connected with one another and that our thoughts and actions have a great influence on our planet collectively,” explains Wright. “We, therefore, all need to work together in making this world a better place by manifesting more hope and more positive thinking wherever we go as well as doing our parts in creating peace and spreading it wherever we see darkness.”

Wright recalls the album’s genesis, “Right before I started the last Ringo All Starr tour in 2008 I began to write for what would be this new studio album. I wanted it to be in the same direction that my album The Dream Weaver was; not too over-produced. So I recorded a few tracks with my engineer Rob Calhoun, who was very helpful in running the technology part of the process and then I went on tour with Ringo. That September after the tour was over I went to Sardinia, Italy where I wrote more songs (on acoustic guitar) and returned home to finish writing and recording the album.”

Wright will be touring with Ringo Starr this summer. Details below.

One thought on “Gary Wright’s Connected

  1. "Connected" is another solid effort by Gary Wright, starting out strong with "Satisfied" and "Get Your Hands Up." Another standout track is the ballad, "Life's Not A Battlefield." We'll be featuring several tracks on Classic Artists Today, syndicated radio show and are shooting to have Gary on our show this Fall! For info visit
