Anthoney Wright’s new single “NO ME WITHOUT YOU” is to be released on February 9th on Palawan Productions. The single follows hot on the heels of his radio smash debut “RESET TO ZERO” which was Record of the Week on BBC Radio 2.
The song comes from Anthoney’s debut album “FEET ON THE GROUND” which is released on March 2nd.
Written by Anthoney with Pete & Steve Lewinson (Simply Red, Annie Lennox) and produced by the Lewinsons and the Brit nominated Absolute production team, the song is a love song based on a true story. With a voice that is reminiscent of some of the great soul classics, Anthoney’s songs capture some of his early influences, (Al Green, Marvin Gaye, to Prince & Aretha ) yet they display a subtle contemporary feel that glides through the album with effortless ease.
His writing is often inspired by his ability to open up conversations with complete strangers. “We don’t talk to each other enough. If we did we would be able to overcome some of our fears which often turn into prejudices. …….everyone has a love story and each one is different……this is what inspires me. .I love life and it never ceases to thrill me……”
Anthoney now practices Buddhism which came to him after a revelatory stay in Worth Abbey where he was part of the programme called ‘The Monastery’. To this day he remains friends with Father James who he sees on a regular basis. Discipline, awareness, running, boxing and meditating all form part of Anthoney’s daily routine, one that is about to see a significant change in gear. Anthoney is signed exclusively to Palawan Productions Ltd, a Universal Music distributed company.
