Dylan Wright's debut single "Ocean Eyes" Singer-Songwriter from Sydney's Southern Beaches

Dylan Wright is a singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist brought up on Sydney’s southern beaches and has been likened to acts such as Jack Johnson, Jeff Buckley & Ben Harper. Still only in his 20’s, Wright’s songs and vocals deliver a uniqueness and maturity well beyond his years. His smooth vocals and storytelling lyrics have been capturing audiences around the country and they find themselves easily immersed in his songs.

Dylan Wright’s new track OCEAN EYES was co-written with Canadian musician, Andy Brown, and marks the debut single release from Wright’s new EP, THE LONG WAY HOME. With folk and blues influences, Wright’s smooth and catchy vocal melodies establish a mellowed atmosphere that draws the listener into the story of the songs which is underpinned by simple guitar lines, a walking bass and shuffling drum.

OCEAN EYES has been lucky enough to have had a sync on the ‘Possible Worlds: U.S. & Canadian Film Festival’ commercial which aired around Australia in August. Earlier this year Wright was invited to perform a showcase at Canada’s East Coast Music Awards conference where he had the opportunity to connect with musicians and people in the industry whom have many years experience. Wright has had the pleasure of playing alongside many talented musicians over the past few years which include (but are not limited to): Dragon, Ian Moss, Diesel, Tim Chaisson (CAN) and Joshua James (USA). A string of live dates will be announced soon in support of OCEAN EYES and Wright’s new EP.
