Onody loves to be musically innovative by creating music and performances that will be memorable, pushing musical boundaries to the point of doing what has never been done before in the process creating "new" music.

Chance Wilder Onody's symphonic rock "Crimson Wings" is such a project and is being hailed as a Masterpiece. Onody's arrangement is receiving incredible recognition, and his 64 instrumental performances in the recording are simply astounding. This recording is a follow up to his very successful single “Feeling Good”, where Onody performed 19 instrumental parts and received rave reviews as the song made it's way around the world.

Just within the last 5 years alone as a professional musician Onody has over 134 bass credits on commercially released recordings in the United States. Chance Wilder Onody has the rare distinction of being equally gifted on the Upright and Electric Bass which has earned him many endorsements and the respect of his peers. Since the age of 15, Onody's distinctive sound, creative hook lines, blistering improvisations and jaw dropping melodies, has him in high demand as a studio musician.

Chance Wilder Onody started his career in classical music and has performed many prestigious solo performances around the world. He was the first bass soloist since the great Gary Karr to perform with the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra with conductor Zun Hin Woo. He was the first bass soloist to ever perform with the Siam Sinfonietta in Thailand, with conductor S.P. Somtow. During that tour Onody also conducted his first International Bass Master Class for the Siam Philharmonic.

Besides his Solo Career, Onody also enjoys rocking the house with the rock group “chris gerolmo and g.o.d.”, the odd time he will step in with other groups if his busy schedule will allow. Onody loves what he does and it shows, his enthusiasm is infectious and it's great to hear what fans have to say like, "WOW, Chance blew my mind, he's like Edger Meyer, Victor Wooten & Tony Levin rolled into one", high praise that Chance appreciates and is humbled by, to be compared to such greats.
