Former ASIWYFA guitarist Tony Wright aka VerseChorusVerse plays Whelans this Thursday with Jonny Black & The Man Whom, and if you fancy a chance to head along for free then you’re in the right place.
VerseChorusVerse is the alias of Tony Wright who previously of PepperBook, Zombie Safari Park and the lesser known ASIWYFA. VerseChorusVerse was born out of a deep rooted desire to sing as Tony found that the mere act of expelling air aurally coupled with hitting idiosyncratic, in tune, musical notes seemed to release endorphins in a free and totally natural way that helped him to smile.
Having toured the world and achieved some success with his last band, the behemoth that is ASIWYFA, the fiercely energetic & instrumental nature of ASIWYFA coupled with their vast wall of sound led to Tony to explore just how to convey as much passion and intensity using only his voice and an acoustic guitar in a live setting. Tony puts it another way: “I just wanted to get scared again, jumping off a cliff into the ocean is way more daring than jumping off a table. Unless that table happens to be on a cliff of course.”
