Cody the Guitarist



"Cody Wright is one of the finest electric guitar players in Western North Carolina. A child of the blues, he also seamlessly melds every influence imaginable into a unique style of guitar playing that can only be experienced to be described. Fans of blues/rock guitar, jazz guitar, and instrumental music in general should take note."

Cody Wright and Friends features drummer/percussionist Phillip Bronson (Jonathan Scales Fourchestra) and electric bass master Michael Hynes for a mix of funky fusion blues/rock. The group has also worked with violin maestro Matt Williams.


 
“It’s not often that I run across a musician like Cody. His charming personality and virtuosity on both bass and guitar should serve him well. I look forward to watching his career blossom. Cody is becoming a world class musician of the highest order!”  ~ Grammy winning guitarist Al Petteway

 

When Cody Wright first got his hands on a guitar, he initially turned to hard rock and metal for inspiration, traveling down the crossroads of the blues before moving on to fusion, jazz, and acoustic music. Technical excellence was always an aspiration of Wright's, along with melodies found early on in video games and television shows.

Cody's electric guitar playing draws from influences ranging from rock and metal players such as Shawn Lane and Nuno Bettencourt to bluesmen such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Scott Henderson.
