2Ton Bridge is the musical persona of singer/songwriter/actor Alexander Wright: a hands-on troubadour with a voice of reason digging deep into rich musical soil.
The long awaited album from the Americana artist 2Ton Bridge is here. This self-titled release is filled with colorful portraits of the struggle for dignity and significance by characters confronting personal watershed moments. Last fall, 2Ton Bridge released a digital 45 to give everyone a taste of what to expect. I m A Hoot Owl and Pennies On The Shore were met with warm greetings and high praise from fans and the press. Since then, like all folksingers, he s kept his head down, working hard at this fall release. As a modern folk singer he evokes a respect for stories of human struggle and timeless themes of love, death, and mans relationship to the earth. He does not let go, back down or settle for less. You can see the cinematic landscape as the music stomps, flows and mingles with singer and songwriter Alexander Wright at the heart of the pulse. He sings about hands, backs, boats, and dear loved ones; gestures that paint scenes of life; anthems, waltzes and sweet melodies. Recorded at Cottage Studio by Sheldon Gomberg with producer Marvin Etzioni, who brought together the most creative and individual players to deliver and support 2Ton's unique voice; Joachim Cooder, Jerry Donahue, Eric Heywood and Tammy Rogers. Many different colors of instruments were used to set the tone fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, mandocello, electric and lap steel guitar painting a lush musical landscape. Mixed by Ryan Freeland and mastered by Gavin Lurssen, this team has sculpted a unique sound that gives a new voice to a traditional inspiration.
