David Wright & Carys started performing together in 2012; composing music that would later appear on the album â€˜Beyond the Airwaves Vol 2â€™. Their first collaborative album, â€˜Prophecyâ€™, described as; â€œA journey from the ocean to the starsâ€, was released in 2017, followed by the iTunes single, â€˜Call to Meâ€™, and a series of successful European concerts.
Both artists have strong credentials. David Wright is a veteran of the electronic music scene with over 50 albums released since the late 1980â€™s that display a wide range of influences. Wright peppers his impressionistic compositions with rock, classical and world flavours, resulting in a diverse range of moods that have been favourably compared to Mike Oldfield, Kitaro, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream.
Carys is an established singer/songwriter on the UK acoustic scene with an enthusiastic and evocative stage presence. She displays a natural charm that has won her many admirers, not just within the folk/rock scene, but also far beyond it. Her debut album, â€˜A Different Kind Of Normalâ€™, is a successful fusion of folk, rock and electronica.
Together, David Wright & Carys combine to create beautiful musical soundscapes that are both emotionally engaging and intellectually stimulating; melodic and thematic music that tells a story, with or without words.
They merge the layered, otherworldly voice of Carys with Davidâ€™s synths and rhythms in an original and captivating style that has been described as "Vangelis meets Enya".

Gig at The Phoenix Theatre in BlythBand / Bands: Sweeney Entertainments Presents Respect to Aretha
Other Info: SWEENEY ENTERTAINMENTS PRESENTS RESPECT TO ARETHA
Aretha Franklin's extraordinary career as a singer and songwriter spanned over sixty years. She rose from church gospel singer to international stardom at a young age and is widely accepted as the finest female soul singer of our time. Her talent has always been unequalled. Massive hits including A Natural Woman, Say A Little Prayer, Chain Of Fools, Until You Come Back To Me, Think, I Never Love A Man, and of course Respect, will ensure that Aretha's legacy will continue forever.
Life-long Aretha Franklin fan and power-house vocalist, Letitia George, rose to the spotlight after featuring on series 4 of BBC 1's The Voice UK, where she became a member of Team Ricky and soared her way through to the knockout rounds. Letitia is now a Presenter on BBC Radio Coventry and has forged an enviable reputation as one of the most passionate and hardworking soul singers around. Aretha's sad passing has inspired Letitia and her outstanding backing band to attempt the seemingly impossible. Very few singers could ever do justice to the Aretha Franklin songbook... but Letitia George manages to capture the very spirit!
Sweeney Entertainments, co-founded by Julie and Peter Sweeney, has been providing a wide repertoire of top-quality touring shows for theatre and corporate events for over eighteen years both in the UK and internationally and now boasts a repertoire of fourteen touring productions. Julie Sweeney, who has been a life-long fan of Aretha, was one of the lucky ones to see Aretha Franklin perform in New York last year. It had been a lifelong dream to see her live. Julie says "This is my most passionate project in 18 years! I am so delighted to be producing this show. Nobody will ever replace the Queen of Soul but this is our way of paying tribute to the greatest Soul singer of all time."
