QUIET RIOT's Chuck Wright, and founder of the award-winning "Ultimate Jam Night", has released his solo reimagined single "The Weight Of Silence". Wright performs acoustic guitars & bass guitar.
First released in May of 2020, "The Weight Of Silence" quickly gathered praise from listeners and the music community. Among those reaching out to Wright to perform on the song were TESLA drummer Troy Luccketta and distinguished jazz fusion guitarist Alan Hinds. Hinds is best known for his work with Natalie Cole and James Ingram, among others. After hearing of compliments from keyboardist Derek Sherinian (SONS OF APOLLO, DREAM THEATER) through a contact, Wright asked Sherinian if he'd be interested in helping add tracks to a newly reimagined version of the song.
"I was humbled by the response of the general public and my fellow musicians," said Wright. "Once Troy, Alan and Derek came on board for a re-recording, I reached out to Ben Woods, one of today's most acclaimed flamenco guitarists. Ben brings a tremendous pedigree and has done unique rock interpretations with his group HEAVY MELLOW. I thought he'd add a wonderful dynamic alongside these other great talents."
Best known for his work with major touring acts, Wright has also been involved with over 100 recording projects throughout his stellar career. The single highlights his musical versatility, producing talent, and video editing capability.
Originally released on YouTube, "The Weight Of Silence" is now available via multiple streaming services.
