Local barista singer-songwriter Noah Wright is shown.

You know you’re living in a real music town when it seems like every other bartender, waiter, barista, and bouncer you encounter is also a musician, and quite often working on their own album project. Such is the case in Madison, and why it was no surprise when I learned that the young man serving my brew at Crafted Coffee is also an aspiring singer-songwriter.

Noah Wright recently purchased Crafted Coffee from the original owner, the Crafton brothers. Noah and his family live just a few doors away behind the shop.
