As a bassist, Cody Wright is earning a reputation as one of the most innovative, soulful, and virtuosic performers in the country. He tours professionally with Asheville, NC based fusion trio Jonathan Scales Fourchestra and has played with Victor Wooten and the Wooten Brothers, Oteil Burbridge, Kebbi Williams, and members of the Duhks, Lee Boys, and Derek Trucks' band. His 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 is a bright light in the music scene. He’s a multi-instrumentalist with chops galore, and plays with a sophistication beyond his years.” ~ Guitarist Don Alder
