Bruce Wright

Bruce Wright has been a member of:

Following the breakup of the Gospel Rock band Servant,lead guitarist Bruce Wright returned to Victoria B.C. with the intent of catching the second wave of the Gospel Rock movement. Having been involved in the first wave from 1970 with the Gospel Rock bands "Freeway" of Victoria B.C. 1970 to 74 and "SERVANT" of Grants Pass, Oregon,1977 to 1985 he was keenly aware that Gospel Rock had grown from a counter culture protest, to an accepted and legitimate genre of music. With that in mind he secured a position at Seacoast Sound Studios in Victoria B.C. as a writer. This allowed him access to a studio and engineers to create his musical vision.

Wright incorporated his own publishing company Ko-alla Rights Music Inc. with his wife Lorraine and set to work. Two years later ten songs would become the culmination of that vision,with lyrics music and production to his credit. Decidedly different in content from his previous work with SERVANT the album contained a love song and other secular nuances. As a multitalented musician he contributed, keyboards, lead guitar, bass, and drums to many of the tracks. Bob Hardy formerly of SERVANT was brought in and with help from Seacoast sounds Dunc Meicklejohn laid down the vocal tracks.

The cd was released in 1990 as Face The Distance, and did well getting airplay on both Christian and mainstream radio. The love song "Song of Songs" and rock song "Runaway" crossing over to mainstream airplay. Things were looking bright. Then Tragedy struck. Wright was diagnosed with cancer. Bruce Wright died of cancer in Victoria B.C. in 1993.
