Gary Wright Innovates For The Dream Weaver, InTheStudio.Net Explores Backstory Of Classic Album

Dallas, TX - August 28, 2014.  InTheStudio.Net, the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands speaks to keyboardist/synth pioneer Gary Wright about his hit 1975 album and single The Dream Weaver.

Robert Moog, the inventor of the electronic musical synthesizer, opened up a new frontier for popular music. Many artists have used the synth in modern recording, but in 1975 there was only one artist who took the power of the synthesizer to a whole new level.

Gary Wright was a young American in London who played keyboards for an otherwise British band Spooky Tooth (which included a pre-Foreigner Mick Jones).
Following the split of Spooky Tooth, Gary returned home to New Jersey and armed with a handful of songs, set off to make a solo album exclusively on electronic keyboard, organ and synthesizer for his third solo album, The Dream Weaver  .

Wright's bold move paid off with spectacular results from songs 'Love Is Alive', 'Made to Love You', 'Blind Feeling', 'Much Higher', 'Power of Love' (the only song to include electric guitar, courtesy of Ronnie Montrose) and the million-selling hit 'Dream Weaver'.

Gary shares with InTheStudio host Redbeard, the decisions he made in order to make The Dream Weaver.

'The whole sonic intent of the album was to have a lot of spaciousness in it, not a lot of instruments playing things. And everything that played something, to really make it count.'
