GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter, producer, and guitarist extraordinaire Cory Wong has released his new album, Power Station, today. The explosive jazz-funk LP features many special all-star guests including Big Wild, Chromeo, Billy Strings, Béla Fleck, Sierra Hull, Victor Wooten, Larry Carlton, Nate Smith, and more. Power Station is available at all DSPs and as a limited-edition 12” Double Black Vinyl (33 rpm).
For the last several weeks, Wong has been releasing songs from Power Station via the second season of his inventive online musical variety series, Cory and the Wongnotes, streaming now on the Minneapolis, MN-based artist’s hugely popular YouTube channel. Created and hosted by the seemingly inexhaustible Wong, each new episode debuts every Tuesday and showcases live performances, original sketch comedy, special guests, interviews, and much more. A consummate reflection of Wong’s outsized vision and unstoppable passion for music, comedy, performance, and conversation, the new season of Cory and the Wongnotes features extended episodes showcasing long-form interviews, fresh new sketches, and unprecedented collaborations with the aforementioned musical guests including Billy Strings, Big Wild, Chromeo, Victor Wooten, Bela Fleck, Sierra Hull, Larry Carlton, and Nate Smith, as well as Lindsay Ell, Mark Lettieri, and Joey Dosik.
