For the past 4 decades, Timothy Wright has been “honing his craft” of playing live and recorded music in the Indiana band, The Wright Brothers. When the band decided to “get off the road,” Timothy began his solo music career, performing at local restaurants around the Indianapolis area and in Nashville, TN.
Singing and playing acoustic guitar, his greatest influence has been James Taylor. “I enjoy J.T.’s songwriting and finger picking guitar style” more than any other songwriter, Wright says.
When coming to hear Timothy, you’ll hear plenty of James Taylor songs, as well as Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Jimmy Buffet, Michael Bublé and classic pop jazz standards like “Fly Me to The Moon” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” Songs from the great musicals like “Till There Was You” and “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” are sprinkled in throughout the evening. Timothy also throws in a few soft rock standards as well – performed acoustically.
“I feel that my goal in performing music in a restaurant is to keep myself as a pleasant background to the diners. There’s nothing worse than going out to dine, and having the live music overpower your conversation.”
Timothy’s song selection is sure to please all ages. “The mood that music creates is so very important. I always try to select the right song for the moment – for the age group before me.”
