James Wright AKA Gunn, has been deeply involved with music since the age of 8. Classically trained on piano and trumpet, he wrote his first piano score at age 11 and was playing trumpet at a local church.
After entering high school Gunn discovered a new type of music, metal, and took up playing the bass guitar in a local band known as Last Revelation. This gave Gunn a more intense and energized view of the music scene and coupled with his classical roots, provides the basis for his hard hitting, technical songs.
Music produced by Gunn only comes to your ears when he gets lost in the world of sound and he refuses to put a track out if he is not personally moved by it.
While continuously learning more and more about music everyday, his true passion only comes from sharing his talent with those around him. His signature style of music, nicknamed Aquastep, is a combination of his passion, intensity, and overall interesting interpretation on how a song should be an experience for you, the listener, not just another sound.
