A Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Award–winning songwriter and producer, he coproduced “Hear This” on Kierra “Kiki” Sheard’s award-winning release, This Is Me. In 2010, Wright embarked on a solo career with the release of his debut album, Unbreakable, which has been met with rave reviews from peers and fans alike.
