Gary Wright
FameRank: 6

"Gary Malcolm Wright" is an American singer, songwriter and musician, best known for his 1976 hit songs "Dream Weaver" and "Love Is Alive (Gary Wright song)/Love Is Alive", and for his role in helping establish the synthesizer as a leading instrument in rock and pop music. Wright's breakthrough album, The Dream Weaver (1975), came after he had spent seven years in London as, alternately, a member of the British hard rock/heavy rock band Spooky Tooth and a solo artist on A&M Records. While in England, he played keyboards on former The Beatles/Beatle George Harrison's All Things Must Pass triple album (1970), so beginning a friendship that inspired the Indian religions/Indian religious themes and spirituality inherent in Wright's subsequent songwriting. His work since the late 1980s has embraced world music and the New-age music/new age genre, although none of his post-1976 releases has matched the popularity of The Dream Weaver.
