Cory Wong with special guest Antwaun Stanley (of Vulfpeck)
Cory Wong might just be your new favorite guitar player.
The Minneapolis-based musician has put in his time as a versatile composer, arranger, producer, and collaborator, most recently known as the guitar player for the fast-rising funk band Vulfpeck. He has also worked as a touring and session musician alongside Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Bootsy Collins.
His expert playing and diverse influences have kept him in demand around the world and around the clock, but he remains loyal to his Midwestern home. Dubbed “the most famous Minnesota musician you’ve probably never heard of” by Minneapolis’ The Current, Cory Wong is finally preparing to jump into the spotlight with his new album Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band. The record was composed and produced with a massive all-star cast of featured musicians, including Antwaun Stanley, Cody Fry, Michael Bland, Sonny T, and the Hornheads horn section.
Cory Wong’s remarkable synthesis of the MPLS SOUND with his own brand of funky multimedia and unique visual aesthetic has reached its apex with this forthcoming release, which finds his Stratocaster chops spotlighted amongst the expert production, both video and audio. Produced in Minneapolis, the album tracks were recorded simultaneously with the footage that goes on to form the remarkable centerpiece of the Cory Wong visual experience.
