    What an incredibly stellar musician.Working with Curtis was definitely a five star experience. His extensive knowledge and expertise in the music industry was a huge plus.
    No matter how challenging my requests were, Curtis never once complained. It’s rare to find someone in the music business that doesn’t sport an ego, and is truly genuine with suggestions.Thank you Curtis for all your creative energy and efforts with my last project. I’m super grateful that you were a part of it.
    If you want a solid product and an overall positive experience, contact Curtis, you won’t be disappointed.

    I’m the owner of Elevation Music Studios. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Curtis, in various capacities, live performance & studio, over the past 12 years. Curtis’s skill level is that of a professional; his work ethic & preparation is equally as amazing! Being proficient in multiple instruments and playing at a high level is really not difficult, if you are willing to put the time in; however, being humble, kind and being a straight up great person, in addition to having his level is excellence, is a rare find. As a result, I highly endorse Curtis and Cedar Loft Studios.

    Curtis provided drums for my first solo EP. I was blown away immediately with his work. The production was top notch and the beats themselves fit the songs better than I could've imagined. His level of dedication was incredible considering I had never met him before then. It felt like he had been drumming on my songs for years.

    I've used Curtis on multiple projects and every time he delivers drum tracks of the highest quality performances. He always goes above and beyond, usually throwing in a few bonus elements to work with I did not even request ! Amazing multi-instrumentalist that will not let you down! He's also one of the coolest, easy going guys on the planet !

    Easy to work with, down to earth, super talented, creative, he can do it all folks... what more could you ask for? I have my own studio and have worked in the music industry for almost 20 years and Curtis is always at the top of my list for session work and musical projects. I’ve known and worked with this guy for 15 years. He’s the real deal!

    Curtis was called in as a session drummer on my projects first EP at NOP Studios. Blew.me.away. Then i started following him and realized quite quick, that he's also a machine on every instrument put in front of him. You've made a smart choice going with him.

  7. Review by Lambert Drive Studios

    Hands down the easiest session player I've worked with over the years. The explanations I give to Curtis never get lost in translation, he just has the natural ability to deliver a strong track that have feel and groove. Hire him today and I promise you will not be disappointed!

    You won't find a better session player. I've worked with Curtis many many times and he's never been anything but a consummate professional and a pleasure to be around. I couldn't recommend him more.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
