Lately with Daniel Wright


Musician Daniel Wright shares what he's been into lately from yoga to true crime shows on Netflix.

What have you been wearing lately?

I did four national trips and a trip to Australia in Nisolo’s Andres All Weather boot. They are breaking in better than any other leather boot I’ve owned in the past. They are good off road, hold up in weather and look great on stage. I usually pack my Alejandros in case I hit a hot day and need something lighter.

 

What should we add to our Netflix queue?

I have been watching Evil Genius and Making a Murderer, both in depth docu-series about unusual criminal cases. I love how they both touch on so many aspects of human nature, ethics, corruption, education and survival.

 

Are you working on new music?

I’m about to release the first full length record with my current band, Radio Skies. It’s called Double Life and examines the different lives we lead through an array of musical textures. It’s my favorite record Ive been a part of and I’m excited to see how people respond. It will be released in September on Underground Sun.

 

Have you taken on any new hobbies this summer?

I have a passion for creating spaces that people are going to spend time in. I built a yoga studio and a music studio in Ojai, CA that I love spending time in with other people sharing in the space and creating things. I’m just beginning to restore a 1960 Airstream Trade Wind which is fast becoming a new hobby. I love all of the little details and functionality of the restoration process.

 

What have you seen lately that you've loved?

One of my favorite current artists is Allison Kunath. Her work is very free and adventurous, you wouldn’t necessarily recognize her from one phase to the next. She is a master of going from extremes to subtleties and seems to have an interwoven theme of human touch. Her latest work has been large scale murals.

 

Anything we should add to our playlist?

I’ve been listening to a wonderful record by Orpheo McCord and recorded by Scott Hirsch called Recovery Inhale. It mostly consists of beautiful Xylophone and Marimba landscapes gently manipulated by electronics. When I find myself rushing around during the day, I lay down and list to one full side of the vinyl. It resets me and brings me peace.

 

Thanks, Dan!
