Karin Wright - "Hunting A Dream"

"What a great discovery Karin Wright is. Whew. She is certainly consistent with the quality of her work and what is really refreshing is that she doesn't seem to recycle ideas. This a fun video with a great music arrangement. A clever…"

"I found the missing link between Patsy Cline and Lucinda Williams. This is excellent. Gutsy, ballsy and at the same time beautifully performed and recorded. Thoroughly enjoyable melody and lyrics. Far, far better than what passes for…"

Bio - Karin Wright

 

To quote one of the most famous guitarists in the world, Keith Richards, "There's been blues and there's been country music. And let's face it, those are the two vital ingredients of rock'n'roll." Karin Wright understands exactly what he means.

 

Get ready for the Norwegian countryrock artists third album titled "Too Rock'n'Roll For Country - Too Country for Rock'n'Roll! She loves both genres and has made up her mind to do what she loves the most and can't live without; both! If there's any artist she can be compared to, it would be Lucinda Williams. Both are country rockers with an honest and true approach to their craft. The album skillfully blends soft country ballads and high energy rock.

 

Wright has developed her own musical signature, characterized by a strong presence in her work, whether she's in the recording studio or on stage. Uncompromising, real, almost skinless. Her heartfelt lyrics are expertly supported by wonderful melodies.

On the album she is accompanied by some of Norways finest musicians. Their musical backgrounds are from rock, blues, and country. On the title track a couple of members from the renowned rockgrass band Hayseed Dixie join her on fiddle and banjo.

In a time where a whole generation is looking for quick solutions and short cuts to success, Karin Wright is a hard working artist who has built herself a solid musical platform, brick by brick. On "Too Rock'n'Roll For Country - Too Country For Rock'n'Roll" she adds a new dimension in to her musical universe. This the real thing from an artist with integrity!

"It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be Wright" (adapted from her song "You're The Man")
