Although John Wright has been making music “forever”, it was through his career in filmmaking and photography, regularly working with world famous musicians, that he received the encouragement he needed to launch his own project: TEENAGE WILDLIFE.
Based in Shoreditch and citing influences such as Van Morrison and Curtis Mayfield, John is a multi-instrumentalist who plays and records drums, bass, guitar and keys. Merging these traditional sounds with ideas sketched on mobile devices and blending samples to create shimmering sonic backdrops across an impressive range of genres, John’s back catalogue boasts impressive examples of hip hop, dance and melodic dub. All his material is recorded in his attic studio where he produces and masters his own work, gathering fans through social networking.
Although John has created tracks that have appeared on fashion films for Fendi and Dior as well as working photographically with Louis Vuitton, Dior, GQ, Vanity Fair and Sony Music, it’s his background that remains a driving force. “I had a pretty rough upbringing” he explains. “I think the term is ‘underprivileged’. I designed Teenage Wildlife as a vehicle to express myself musically and to use funds I raise through it to support charities that help underprivileged young people.”
Teenage Wildlife’s ‘The Last Great Love Affair’ and AA side ‘Most Beautiful Thing’ are released on Monday September 1st.
Check out a sneak preview of “The Last Great Love Affair”:
