As long as he could remember Myron “Foot” Wright was a singer. One of his favorite songs to sing was Elvis’ hit song '' You Ain’t Nothing but A Hound Dog". As a kid, however, Footwright had to hustler to eat and was out on his own from the age of 12. He learned to play pool, cards and shoot dice in order to eat. He was famous cross-country as Fast Foot and The Golden Boy during his street days, which is where his name comes from. Those days weren’t proud times for Footwright and he decided to get into his first love – music.
His first shot as a musician, Footwright sent his lyrics to a company for recording. The end result wasn’t a positive one.
Footwright’s second shot at becoming a musician was at a recording studio in 1980. He employed a guy name Morris Ogletree to produce his track and play all the instruments. Ogletree didn’t produce the sounds Footwright wanted and it amounted to another failed attempt.
In 1981, Footwright tried his hand at producing on a song he had written entitled ''This Song is for You'' - a nice ballad with a great storyline. It was recorded at Haywood Recording Studio in Atlanta. The artist who performed the song was Joe Graham. The two got a buzz around New York, but unfortunately Joe lost his life in an accident.
Footwright learned never to quit on himself. He says, “Even if a train was laying on top of me, I would have to continue to believe someone would come move it off me”.
With that frame of mind Footwright personally drove ''This Song Is for Song" all the way to Nashville and took it to Masterfonic. He talked his way into the lab where engineer, Jim Lloyd taught him about the technique of cutting grooves in plates. He then drove his plate over to the pressing company and dropped it off. The trip gave Footwright knowledge in production and postproduction.
Footwright has recorded and mastered over 50 songs. He has worked with countless studio musicians from Drummer ''Young Rico Scott'', Vince Taylor of Earth Wind and Fire, and William G. He has also met numerous legends such as David Ruffin at the Fox Theater and Curtis Mayfield, both in which he became friend with. Footwright also worked with Tab Bush, Keith Evans, Rodney Mills, Phil and Allen Walden’s, The Allman Brothers and many more at Capricorn Records in Macon, GA.
In 2007, Footwright moved to TV where he started planning events, finding venues, booking acts, videoing and editing footage which he transferred into a 30-minute program. He would buy airtime from local TV stations and sell 30 sec spots to local businesses.
Footwright started A Showcase for Unsigned Talent (ASFUT) from hosting this TV show. He met many unsigned artists while in this field. In 2008, he decided to turn ASFUT into a website and take it online in order to reach more viewers. Today we have a database of Investors and Industry Insiders looking daily for fresh clean talent and our goals is travel around the globe gathering contents and sharing cultures.
In these days, Footwright’s greatest asset is his honesty and all he ever wants to do is make people smile.
