The Brights – Alyssa Wright and Don Bray

The Brights is “an exciting new duo formed by established singer-songwriters and well-respected instrumentalists, Don Bray and Alyssa Wright”  [Orillia Packet & Times]. Roots music, tinged with gospel, country and blues is accompanied by guitar, cello, Hawaiian king, accordion, mandolin, cajon, and whatever new sounds have recently tickled their fancy.

With soulful harmonies and sensitive arrangements, The Brights present original songs and old classics in an easy-going, timeless style, equally at home in kitchen party or concert hall.
