History

The band began as a side project for Wright when he was a member of Weeping Tile. When that band amicably parted ways following their 1998 recording This Great Black Night, the Wrongs became Wright's primary band. The band membership has shifted a number of times since its inception. Original members Wright, Cam Giroux (drums), Sean Kelly (bass), Brian Flynn (fiddle), Dan Curtis (electric guitar) and Olesh Maximew (pedal steel guitar) toured Canada and established themselves on the burgeoning alt-country scene. Consistent contributors and guests include Sarah Harmer, Jason Mercer, Chris Brown and Suzie Ungerleider.[1] Pedal steel player Burke Carroll joined the band in 2001 and was followed by Columbus, Ohio based fiddler Megan Palmer. Since 2004 mandolin player Dan Whiteley has been a full time member of the Wrongs and the band has also been joined by fiddler Miranda Mulholland, bassist James Taylor, drummers Mauro Sepe and Casey Fisher and recently vocalist and pianist Emily Fennell.

The band's debut album, Hurtin' for Certain, recorded at Grant Avenue studio in Hamilton, was released in 1997 on Snakeye Muzak. Guelph based D.R.O.G. records released Roger's Waltz in 1999. Both of these albums are original roots/country efforts with the songs written primarily by Wright. Guitarist Dan Curtis added two songs to Roger's Waltz, one a snappy duet entitled "Celia" with Sarah Harmer.

The band's best-known album, Rebuild the Wall, was released in 2001 on Back Porch Records. It is a track-by-track reimagining of Pink Floyd's progressive rock classic The Wall as a bluegrass country album.[2] The band signed with Universal Records Canada and Back Porch Records in the U.S. and embarked on a North American tour to perform their version of the wall, intermixed with their own compostions.

Their fourth album, Guitar Pickin' Martyrs, was also released on Back Porch in 2003.[3]

In 2006 the band released Instrumentality on Hardwood Records. They also recorded two tracks for the 2006 Steve Goodman tribute album My Old Man, reimagining Goodman's "City of New Orleans" and "Jessie's Jig".

Man of Your Dreams was released March 25, 2008 on Snakeye Muzak, distributed by Outside Music.

The members of Luther Wright and the Wrongs have also recorded two albums for children under the name Butterfingers.[4]
