Bio

​The Story

Sugar Gliders is a vehicle I (Steve Wright) created at Taupo in January 2008. This enables me to perform songs I write and produce in my home studio live. Most times I will invite locally based musicians to join me on stage. Or sometimes I may do it as a solo artist. This enables me to draw from my huge catalog of varied styles of original songs and tailor it to the needs of the venue. These songs could be anything from acoustic singer/songwriter to alternative rock.​

Currently Sugar Gliders music is now being streamed in 22 states in the USA.
