Seeking: Booking, Sync Licensing, Press 

Style: Jazz

N.Y.C.-based jazz drummer, composer, bandleader and educator Curtis Nowosad is a JUNO-nominated artist who, according to his bio, “has played in the bands of many top jazz artists of multiple generations, including Steve Nelson, Jazzmeia Horn, Philip Harper, Brianna Thomas, Craig Harris, and Sarah Elizabeth Charles. Non-jazz heads need not fear—Nowosad’s music is entirely accessible and wonderfully emotive. While he and his bandmates are capable of a good jazz noodle when the mod strikes, they’re more focussed on keeping songs like “Road” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” moving along in the right direction. The result is a smooth and palatable listening experience.
