Johnny Wright is a talented Australian singer and guitarist. Gifted with a golden voice, he performs classic 60s songs, inspired by his father’s love of songs from that era. Johnny has a remarkable talent for telling stories, and provoking emotion in his songs.
Born in the Philippines and unable to walk due to polio, Johnny was given a second chance at life when his mother married an Australian man. The family survived a precarious trip to Australia when Johnny was a small child and he has always shared an incredibly special bond with his father. Johnny’s music is inspired by this close relationship.
Johnny demonstrates the power of his music when performing in nursing homes for critical care and Alzheimer’s patients. Audiences join with him, singing lyrics even when all other memories are lost. When someone has lost all else, music remains. This is what Johnny brings to the community.
