Tim Wright exhibited musical aspirations at the tender age of 3, singing self-penned songs into a portable cassette recorder. Through the '70s and early '80s, he underwent formal piano training and wrote songs for a handful of short-lived pop/electro bands.
The late '80s saw Wright’s career really gain pace, as he penned memorable and often award-winning compositions for over 50 computer and video games, beginning with freelance work on Commodore Amiga titles. He then went on to work full-time at Psygnosis Ltd. (Now SCEE) on projects such as Lemmings, Wipeout, Wipeout 2097 and Colony Wars.
Leaving Psygnosis in ’95, Wright helped form Jester Interactive Ltd. with the intention of bringing music creation and mixing to the masses on Sony’s original PlayStation console. Highly innovative and easy to use, the simply titled Music received many awards and accolades, and spawned five more incarnations before Wright finally departed in search of greener pastures.
In 2003, Wright formed his own multimedia company called Tantrumedia Ltd., an outlet for all his creative aspirations: Web site creation, software production, design and print, and, of course, music. Indeed, Wright’s enduring love of songwriting led him to set up a Web site to host much of his musical output under the name CoLD SToRAGE.
The year 2005 was busy for Wright. In addition to releasing his long-awaited CoLD SToRAGE double album "MELT," he designed a brand new version of the dance and hip-hop eJay music software for Empire Interactive. He also made a welcome return to Wipeout, this time for the Sony PSP's Wipeout Pure.
In 2006, hip-hop and techno eJay products were developed. Work began on the new album, "ANDROID CHILD," and a video for "ASIMOV" from the "MELT" album is complete and available from many sites (youtube.com, myspace.com and coldstorage.org.uk).
2007 proves to be an "eJay explosion!" with a revamp for the product range and VMS and R&B launched.
2008 Finally the album "Android Child" is launched in March, followed a few months later by the eagerly anticipated "CoLD SToRAGE HD" - an unofficial 6 track album for the game "Wipeout HD".
2009 A new album is released to rave review "Project Moonbounce 2009" and music tracks are being penned for the Sony PS3/PSP game "Gravity Crash".
