Anthoney Wright - Reset To Zero
Just been turned onto this!!! Love it!!!
Check out more about Anthoney Wright on his MySpace. Here's his blurb:
De Angelis Records/Palawan Productions The sound of Motown is reborn in this soulful groove-laden song. With soaring vocals and a joyful gospel feel ‘Reset To Zero’ is the debut solo release by the new son of soul - Anthoney Wright. Produced by Absolute and co-written by London-based Anthoney Wright ‘Reset To Zero’ is shaping up to be the song that brings sunshine to the summer of 2008.
Inspired by the great R&B and soul legends such as Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass and Sam & Dave, Anthoney’s career has also been influenced by a more recent music man. Ian Wright, founder of Reverb Music and industry maestro, heard Anthoney singing at a gig and immediately signed him to the publishing company. A friendship and bond developed, one that went far deeper than the normal business relationships and was rooted in their joint love of music. Prior to his death to cancer in July ’07, Ian set out clear instructions to his family as to how to help Anthoney succeed and now, little more than a year later, the legacy is yielding its first fruit.
The first single from his as-yet-untitled forthcoming album, ‘Reset To Zero’ showcases the charismatic singer’s stunning voice with its exciting range and tone. His music is full of contradictions – raw yet slick, current yet cool, rooted in the past yet decidedly modern – with an instant feeling of familiarity that is contrasted by the freshness of the sound. The appeal is undeniable. The airplay is inevitable. The star is in its ascendancy.
