The Brights

"A couple of musical powerhouses... charismatic charm... experienced, gifted, original and extremely likeable... jaw-dropping."
[Jim Sinclair, Castlegar News]

The Brights is "an exciting new duo formed by established singer-songwriters and well-respected instrumentalists, Don Bray and Alyssa Wright" [Orillia Packet & Times].  Roots music, tinged with gospel, country and blues is accompanied by guitar, cello, Hawaiian king, accordion, mandolin, cajon, and whatever new sounds have recently tickled their fancy.  With soulful harmonies and sensitive arrangements, The Brights present original songs in an easy-going, timeless style, equally at home in kitchen party or concert hall.

Live Love Dream is The Brights’ debut CD, featuring all original tunes (eleven songs and one instrumental). Those who have become fans of Don Bray and Alyssa Wright as solo artists will find something familiar about the music on this album, yet their collaboration has allowed them to venture in to places previously unexplored, producing a whole “much more than the sum of its parts” [Paul Court, Orillia Folk Society] – probably best exemplified by their three new co-writes, which “show the best of both” [Jennifer Ives, music promoter]. Co-produced by Alyssa Wright and Don Bray, Live Love Dream was recorded at their Orillia studio in early 2009 – engineered and mixed by Don, and mastered by Juno nominee GEORGE SEARA at Phase One in Toronto. The musical arrangements on the album stay very close to The Brights’ live duo sound, with Don alternating between guitar, dobro, Hawaiian king and mandolin, and Alyssa on cello or accordion, with her cajon and other foot percussion. They just couldn’t resist adding an extra layer or two at times, though – so on a few tunes you’ll hear some extra harmonies and cello lines, harmonium, hand percussion, and the rich tones of bass player PATRICK MCPHAIL. Live Love Dream was released in 2009 at Hugh’s Room in Toronto. The CD is distributed by Take Note! Promotion. Tracks from Live Love Dream have been played across Canada on the CBC, as well as campus, community and other folk-friendly radio such as CKUA, CFMU, CIUT’s Back to the Sugar Camp and Acoustic Workshop, CKPC's Just us Folk and Erin Radio’s Acoustic Planet. Both Don Bray and Alyssa Wright bring to this project their well-known instrumental proficiency, rich imagery and strong writing. Together, they add soaring harmonies, intricate arrangements, and a true balance between two talented and hard-working artists.
