Multi-instrumentalist Cody Wright is quickly earning a reputation as one of the most innovative, soulful, and jaw-dropping young performers in the country. He plays bass, guitar, and keyboards and was co-composer for the 2016 multi-platform video game release of Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove. He has toured nationally & internationally with Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Eric Gales Band, Everyone Orchestra, and James Brown Dance Party.
Cody has performed and/or recorded with with Victor Wooten (and the Wooten Brothers), Eric Gales, Jeff Coffin, Oteil Burbridge, Etienne M'Bappe (of John McLaughlin Band), Tony Grey (Hiromi), Kebbi Williams, Felix Pastorius, members of the Duhks & Lee Boys, and members of the Tedeschi/Trucks Band, among others.
Cody's early training in jazz, fusion, and blues guitar has left him with a keen sense of melody, harmony, and phrasing. His use of the pick and two-handed tapping technique gives him unique tone and facility, but above all, his unabashed love for music shines through in every note he plays.
Cody Wright will release his debut album, "A BASS ONLY A MOTHER COULD LOVE" in 2016.
"Gruv Gear Fret Wraps are absolutely perfect for stopping 'string talk' on your bass or guitar when you're tapping or playing in the higher register. (Much better than scrunchies or hair ties). This really brings out the true, pure tone of your instrument and amp without any unwanted color from droning strings. They also look super cool! I love the wild animal prints!"
