Immersed from birth in a ridiculously diverse array of rhythm & blues, jazz, funk, soul, and rock, Corey Conway, an Akron, OH native, has recently established himself as one of the most exciting and tasteful guitar players in Northeast Ohio.
Main influences include: The Meters, Vulfpeck, Lettuce, Soulive, Ray Charles, Galactic, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, JJ Grey & Mofro, Stevie Wonder, The New Mastersounds, James Brown, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Anderson .Paak, and Snarky Puppy, among countless others.
His rhythmic resumé includes bouts with the internationally acclaimed Sean Carney (blues), Jovan Wilder & the Wild Things (neo-soul), Nesta (reggae), The Bel-Airs (oldies/early rock n’ roll), The Conway Brothers (blues/funk/soul/rock) and most recently, Mo’ Mojo (zydeco).
Conway, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, is currently gearing up for the 2019 release of some brand new original raw/heavy funk instrumentals, in addition to a new album with Mo’ Mojo.
