2Ton Bridge is Alexander Wright: a hands-on troubadour with a voice of reason digging deep into rich musical soil. The cultivated songs are colorful portraits of the struggle for dignity and significance by a man confronting personal watershed moments.
Closing the gap between late Summer and early Fall, 2Ton Bridge presents a “Digital 45” featuring music reminiscent of artists such as Tom Russell and Leonard Cohen.
“A mesmerizing voice–both as a writer and as a singer–and it so clearly communicates your feelings without ever being “acted” or given a patina of false humanity.” – Luigi Salerni (Director)
Scene One: It’s pure as honey and sweet as fireflies.
“’Pennies On The Shore’ – a wistful melody paired with pastoral lyrics that feel nostalgic for something happening right now. The plaintive arrangement is awash in BUCOLIC BANJO, CASCADING PEDAL STEEL, RIPPLING MANDOLIN and sweet HARMONIES.” – Coachella Valley Weekly, Palm Springs, CA
Scene Two: you’re sitting on the porch with the fireflies blinking smoke signals and the one beside you has the giggles.
“‘I’m A Hoot Owl’ – (co-written with Marvin Etzioni) – a LUSH LULLABY seasoned by accordion, plangent lap steel along with SHIMMERY GUITAR and MANDOLIN fills. The lyrics offer a SWEET INVOCATION of love; ‘When it gets so dark and you can’t believe, I’m in your heart, I’m in the trees.’ ” – Coachella Valley Weekly, Palm Springs, CA
