Cory Wong of US funk sensation Vulfpeck heads out on a UK tour with his new album ‘The Optimist’.
The Minneapolis-based musician has put in his time as a versatile composer, arranger, producer, and collaborator. He has also worked on shows and artists like NBC’s “The Voice,” playing alongside Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, Questlove, 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 returns with his second full-length album ‘The Optimist’ after 2017’s sensationally funky ‘Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band’.
