Justin Wright (2018)

Montreal, QC

Justin Wright’s cello-led work is where boldness and elegance meet. Using blinking synth arpeggios and a violin accompanist as a bedrock, his languid bowing brings forward swells of emotion including euphoria, wonder and heartbreak. It’s no wonder he’s shared stages with fellow visionaries like Jóhann Jóhannsson and Bing & Ruth, and appears at Sled Island as a member of both Common Holly and Year of Glad.
