One of the most important guitarists of modern funk and soul, composer and music producer.

As he says, he pursues lifting the spirits of the audience and conveying a feeling of joy. His magnetic guitar playing, technical exuberance, outstanding humor and brilliance emanating from the stage have made him both a musician of choice for collaborations and a popular solo artist. Cory Wong has released several albums, including “Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band” (2018) and “The Optimist” (2020). He has been a member of the funk band Vulfpeck since 2011.
