1967, Wright's band the New York Times brought him to
the attention of Island Records Chris Blackwell, who in
turn introduced the singer to the members of the band
to London, Wright joined Art, soon renamed Spooky Tooth
and later emerging among the UK's premier hard rock outfits.
When Spooky Tooth temporarily disbanded in 1970, Wright
formed Wonderwheel, and at the same time played keyboards
on George Harrison's All Things Must Pass. Gary
and George became close friends and collaborators, together
taking a trip to India which inspired the mystical themes
of Wright's subsequent solo efforts. He returned to Spooky
Tooth in 1973, but when the band again dissolved the following
year he returned to his solo career, scoring his greatest
success with 1975's The Dream Weaver; both the
title track and "Love Is Alive" reached number
two on the Billboard pop charts, and the album, one of
the first created solely via synthesizer technology, achieved
platinum status. Follow-ups including,' Light of Smiles'.
'Touch and Gone', and 1979's,'Headin' Home',
failed to repeat The Dream Weaver's success, however,
and in 1981 Wright notched his final chart hit with "Really
Wanna Know You," from The Right Place. From there
he composed a series of film scores, including 1985's,
'Fire and Ice', which topped the German charts.
first solo album in seven years, Who Am I featured
contributions from Indian classical greats Lakshmi Shankar
and L. Subramanium. In 1991 he remade "Dream Weaver"
for the soundtrack of the hit film comedy Wayne's World,
and in 1995 issued his first world music effort, 'First
Signs of Life', with,'Human Love' following
five years later.
