Airan Wright


Airan Wright is an accomplished woodwind doubler and visual artist based in Evanston, Illinois. He studied music at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, receiving performance degrees in both bassoon and saxophone, before moving to the Midwest with a rock band. He performs and records regularly with an eclectic range of groups including Mucca Pazza, Big Shoulders Brass Band, and Origin of Animal. His woodwind quintet Ravenswood Winds prominently displays his cross-genre approach to composition and performance in their show “Ravenswood Winds Play Radiohead” by fusing classical sensibilities with modern rock techniques. Outside of musician life, Airan is an illustrator, filmmaker, and sushi chef — his sushi is edible, not beautiful.
