Sean Wright, “Blow These Blues Away”
AUG 16, 2011 6:00 AM by Michael Verity
According to Sean Wright‘s Last.fm biography, he’s endeavored
to record and release a new collection of songs every month since
April 2007. As near as we can tell, he’s been good to his word.
What’s more, all of the albums he’s recording and releasing
are available for free through a variety of venues on the internet.
An interesting approach from a guy who counts among his
influences everything from ’60s folk to ’70s classic rock to ’80s
That’s what we hear in “Blow These Blues Away” from the very
first twang of the Telecaster. Wright has the gutsy growl of a
countrified Bob Dylan and the skill at turning phrase as solid as
anyone turning out tunes in Nashville.
No wonder this prolific singer and songwriter (who’s also a
record producer and novelist) is sought out by a dozen or more
collaborators. Our only disappointment is that he’s not a
practicing attorney and world-renowned pastry chef, as well. Maybe
he’ll do that next year.
