Wright is best known as a long-time member of multi-platinum heavy metal band Quiet Riot. He originally joined Quiet Riot in 1981, playing bass on the tracks “Metal Health (Bang Your Head)” and “Don’t Wanna Let You Go,” as well as singing background vocals on all tracks from the 1983 multi-platinum album Metal Health, which was the first metal album to ever reach #1 on the Billboard 200 chart (in November 1983).

He performed, toured the world, and recorded with Quiet Riot on-and-off for 26 years…recording nine albums with the band, before departing the band again.  As of now, he is no longer a member of Quiet Riot as he concentrates on his solo career and new album.

Wright is featured in the documentary Quiet Riot – Well Now You’re Here, directed and produced by Regina Russell. It premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival on April 29, 2014, was seen at the Cannes Film Festival, and has aired on the Showtime Network.

Wright is also a former member of hard rock band Giuffria, which he joined in 1984. Their debut album, Giuffria, peaked at #26 on the Billboard album charts in March 1985. The album spawned two hit singles, “Call to the Heart” (Hot 100 #15) and “Lonely in Love” (Hot 100 #57).

Chuck was also a founding member of hard rock band, House of Lords, for which he recorded four albums, including the band’s self-titled debut album, which reached #78 on The Billboard 200, and was the debut release on Gene Simmons’ label, Simmons Records, in 1988.

His reputation as a sought-after bass player has landed him gigs with Alice Cooper, Slash, Gregg Allman, Carmine Appice, Ronnie Montrose, John Waite, and Pat Travers, amongst others.

Wright has appeared on over 100 worldwide record releases, playing bass, and producing albums of various styles, including ambient trance, reggae, rap, country, and, of course, rock.  He has also been involved in seven film scores, including Kull the Conqueror, where he was joined by Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Over the years, Wright also worked with Bad Moon Rising, Blackthorne, Christian Tolle Project, Doro, Impellitteri, Kuni, MSG, Magdalen, Murderer’s Row, Pata, Stephen Pearcy of Ratt, Adler’s Appetite, Love/Hate, Ken Tamplin, and Shane Gibson from Korn.

Wright has headed up Ultimate Jam Night, a long-running live music show since January 2015, at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood. Ultimate Jam Night features up to 60 pro musicians each week.
