Rickey Gene Wright
Americana Singer Songwriter
Verified Spotify Artist
RGW Host In-The-Round Songwriter's DSA Event At Love And War In Texas (Plano, TX.) 01/25/2024
You can describe this native Texan and Americana singer songwriter as a purveyor of ballads that travel down that road between Folk/Roots Music and Country Music. You will also notice some side road influences of Bluegrass, Acoustic Blues, Country Rock and Inspirational/Hymns Music. Rickey Gene Wright is a wordsmith, a storyteller, a singer songwriter who captures real life and paints a picture with words quite often with three chords and the truth. RGW is a Martin guitar guy and he performs with two Martin guitars. A mahogony D --15M dreadnought and an african rosewood (ovangkol) OMC --16E orchestra cutaway. He also changes up the sound with a Gretcsh six string banjo and a Loar mandolin and he also does that folk harmonica thing while playing his guitar. His first love in music is songwriting but he does sing some Americana cover songs while performing but only in his own style not ever trying to be a tribute band type cover song performer.

“Not many artists can captivate an audience like the singer-songwriter Rickey Gene Wright. He carries a golden age brand of Americana and Country Music that reminds us of days when the troubadour was king, and storytelling was a craft reserved for only the most dedicated souls who could lose themselves inside of a song. His live performance is more than a show; it’s an experience—a journey through history and back, down old dirt roads that run along one-room church houses and old barns, across oceans of time, and inward to the deepest places of the human heart. If Rickey Gene Wright is playing solo or accompainied by that bass player Frank DaCosta or with the Americana acoustic band "Duck Creek Station" anywhere near you, you don’t want to miss it.” ---- Tony Ramey, Gold and Platinum Nashville Songwriter, BMI Award-Winning Singer-Songwriter, and Texas Country Music Association Artist Of The Year.
"If you hunger for a uniquely rich voice, true story songs that transport you to another place and time you will love that Americana Singer Songwriter, Rickey Gene Wright. This songwriter connoisseur is worth taking the time to go and see perform, and if you don't you really don't know what you are missing." ---- Brad Davis, Grammy Award-Winning Guitarist, Nashville Session Musician and Songwriter, Former Lead Guitar Player For Marty Stuart's Band and Billy Bob Thorton's Band.
