Chris Wright

Chris Wright was born in Mt. Vernon, NY, on June 16th, 1990. Chris has had an innate ability to play the drums since he was old enough to bang on pots and pans. He started playing the drums in church when he was four years old. His mother Frances McKnight, who was an avid church goer, saw his potential and encouraged his ability to play. Playing the drums kept him busy and protected from their tough neighborhood. Music became his way of expression over the years. This mode of expression was invaluable during his mother’s illness and subsequent passing from breast cancer when he was a pre-teen.

Chris travels to different churches as well as plays various gigs around the east coast. He plays many genres of music, which include: Indie Folk, Rock, R&B, Caribbean and Country. He is interested in expanding his knowledge of the drums. His mentor, Mr. Augusta James, has been instrumental in supporting, encouraging, and nurturing his gifts. Chris aspires to have his name mentioned with the likes of Aaron Spears, Steven Gadd, Frank Briggs, and Brent Eastern.
