Following on from his sold-out Spring 2019 UK tour, prolific rhythm guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Cory Wong will perform tracks from his forthcoming third solo album Motivational Music for The Syncopated Soul at his biggest UK solo shows to date, taking place February 2020. Motivational Music for The Syncopated Soul is the follow up to Wong’s acclaimed sophomore solo LP, 2018’s The Optimist.
A key figure with the much-loved American funk collective Vulfpeck and recent spin-off group The Fearless Flyers, Cory Wong has been central to the revival of classic funk and R&B rhythms and styles through viral YouTube videos, modelled after live TV performances from the 1970s and 1980s.
Dubbed the “Stratocaster Master”, by Live for Live Music, Cory’s expert technique has seen him work on NBC’s The Voice and collaborate with the likes of Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, Questlove, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Bootsy Collins.
The Motivational Music for The Syncopated Soul UK tour sees Cory Wong return to the UK with his unique blend of guitar wizardry, laugh-out-loud jokes and eccentric visuals, to play his biggest shows to date.
