Love is in the air, and as Valentine's Day draws ever closer, romantic pianist Danny
Wright is offering several ways to surprise and delight the love in your life. New music, stunning gift baskets, and live concerts are some of the ways Wright is helping to set the perfect mood for romance, marriage proposals and the rekindling of relationships.
"Without love, what else is there? My music, especially the customized songs I compose, all come from love between family and friends, I'm just lucky to be the one to channel it into song," Wright says.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Wrights' own Vegas-based WH Sound Studio will re-release his classic album Real Romance as a physical CD with new packaging and a bonus track, which can be ordered directly via the artist's website, or by phone.
The record label will also release a more robust "digital-only" version of the album called Real Romance -- Deluxe
Edition, especially perfect for gifting to loved ones both near and far via music downloading sites like iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby. This 18-track "Deluxe Edition" is available digitally only for just $9.99 on 2/11/14. Real Romance - Deluxe
Edition includes all of the piano-based songs from the original album, plus, three newly-recorded love songs, and three top-selling tracks handpicked by the artist. Danny's beautiful arrangements of songs like "Moon River," "Somewhere in Time" and "My Funny Valentine" are the perfect complement to unforgettable original works like "My Miracle" and the newer composition "Madelyn's Theme."
Lovers looking for a bit more "wow" factor can order a specialty gift basket, including four CDs (Real Romance, Gifts from the Heart
, Full of Love, Heart
2 Heart) a scented candle, and a box of high-quality See's Chocolates. The baskets are $75 retail and can be ordered from WH Sound Studio by phone at 702-724-0918.
Those wanting to go for a once-in-a-lifetime experience can commission an original Danny
Wright song; these are particularly popular for special anniversary years. They come with CD copies of the song, a DVD performance of Danny
playing the song, and a special YouTube video sharing it with the world. The gifts are beautifully packaged in a special gift box with a signed certificate of authenticity. In 2013, twenty-eight individuals embraced the opportunity to share their love stories with Wright; the result is songs that he first intuits, then composes, performs, produces and ships in a custom-designed gift package.
Wright is frequently asked what goes into creating a personal love song for two people. He explains that the process begins with the giver of the gift writing a heartfelt paragraph to their loved one, which they initially share solely with Wright, alongside a list of the gift recipient's favorite music. After absorbing all of this information, Wright says, the creative inspiration begins as he thinks about the appropriate mood and key for the musical love story. Once either a major or minor key is chosen, he waits for the melody or bridge to come through in such a way that befits the love story. Many of these works are shared on the albums included in this year's 4-CD gift basket.
"I truly believe that the music is a gift from God," Wright says, "and I am just here to deliver it. What I love about this process is that each piece becomes a work of art that captures the essence of someone who is deeply beloved to another."
Wright performs his Real Romance concert repertoire several times this Valentine's Day season. In this show, Wright creates an evening of romance and remembrance in his cabaret-style piano concert, sharing the real life love stories behind the music, and performing his signature arrangements of romantic songs from the stage and screen such as "My Funny Valentine," "Places That Belong to You" and "For Good."
The first concert is on Valentine's Day (February 14, 2014) in Schaumburg, IL, at the Prairie Center of the Arts, 201 Schaumburg Court, Schaumburg, IL 60193-1899; tel. 847.895.3600 for ticket information, or visit their website: https://www.ci.schaumburg.il.us/PCA/PrairieCenter/Pages/default.aspx
The second and third Real Romance concerts are slated for the Cabaret Jazz room at the world-class performing arts venue The Smith Center, in Las Vegas, on Sunday February 23rd, at both 2 pm and 6 pm. For these two shows, he will be joined by special guest star Traci Kesisian (vocals), Bob Sachs (bass) and Cole Bingham (percussion). The Smith Center is located at 361 Symphony Park Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89106; tickets range from $30 - $75, and are available at the venue box office, by phone at 702.749.2000, or online at https://www.thesmithcenter.com/events/danny-wright-real-romance/
