The Jonny Wright Band is made up of longtime friends and band mates; Jonny Wright, Phillip Wenzel, Josh Pickerign and Levi Warren. Jonny & Phillip first began playing together in Jr. High, in their church’s youth worship band, where Josh later joined the two in High School.
The three attended separate colleges and pursued their own musical endeavors. It was during this period that Jonny met and began performing with bassist, Levi Warren. Through the Lord’s leading, the group reunited after college and began touring together in promotion of Jonny’s sophomore solo release, “Our God is Here”. After the album’s release in October 2011, the band topped off the fall tour performing at “Spirit Fest” before 12,000 concertgoers at the Dell Diamond Stadium in Austin, TX.
Following the successful fall tour, the four began collaborating together and formed the Jonny Wright Band. They have been writing and recording new music and have performed at numerous churches and festivals throughout the Northwest, most recently winning a spot on the Indie stage at Creation Fest NW 2012. The band is currently in the studio, working on their first full-length album, set to release in Fall 2012.
