Kenny Wright, the long-time drummer/instrumentalist for legendary stomp rock band Bonepony and a veteran of the Nashville, TN rock landscape for twenty-plus years, has just released his first solo album. Family Album is a cathartic blend of rock, pop, folk, americana and country that took Wright a lifetime to formulate. The album ignores stylistic conventions as it explores jangly pop ("Little Bohemian"), Zeppelin-esqe hard rock ("Left Of Me"), folk ("Song About Ohio") and straight ahead classic country with a rowdy send-up of the Waylon Jennings smash "Honky Tonk Heroes". The majority of the disc was produced by Wright and fellow Bonepony band mate Scott Johnson and features strong contributions by an impressive supporting cast of musical luminaries. It''s a small miracle that Family Album was completed at all; Wright''s main gig sees him on the road for some 200 nights a year as well as in the studio working on Bonepony''s studio offerings on the off nights. Regardless, it was an album Wright felt he needed to make for a variety of reasons. Sessions were primarily held in Nashville with Johnson and Goose Creek Symphony knob twister Travis Gearheart. The result is the eclectic Family Album.
