Artist Biography by

The brother of soul singer Betty Wright (of "Clean-Up Woman" fame), Milton Wright made some underappreciated records for the disco-oriented Miami label TK (specifically its Alston subsidiary). Blending smooth, rich vocals with disco-tinged funk and a strong electronic flavor (often courtesy of Moog synthesizers), Wright issued his debut album Friends & Buddies in 1975. His single "Keep It Up" became a cult classic among funk and disco collectors, and he followed it with another LP, Spaced, after which he faded from view.
