London singer-songwriter Danny Wright has released his debut single Staying In on all digital platforms. The acoustic-driven pop-rock song combines hard-hitting lyrics with soaring melodies and marks the arrival of a new talent on the UK rock scene.
Danny Wright is a self-taught, self-made singer, guitarist, songwriter and actor who rarely fits neatly into one stereotypical box. A former frontman of touring rock bands DissolvedIN and We Are Lost Boys, he played all over the world, performed at Download festival and enjoyed press acclaim from Kerrang! magazine. Now a solo artist with a clutch of pop-influenced and intensely personal new songs to unveil (helmed by You Me At Six/Lower Than Atlantis producer John Mitchell), he is taking the next step in what’s set to be a long career.
“The song is about anxiety and crippling ambition,” says Danny of his debut release. “I actually started writing it a long time ago, but I never ﬁnished it due to what I thought was writer’s block. I’ve been sitting on some songs for years telling myself they are not ready. Last year I had an extreme anxiety attack and was rushed to A+E, and afterwards I had therapy sessions – which was one of the best things I ever did. In those sessions, I learned a lot about my behaviours, my habits and my demons. ‘Staying In’ is about the process of creating, and because of that psychological breakthrough it became almost effortless to ﬁnally ﬁnish.”
