With 5 years in Nashville under his belt and 3 years touring with American Idolís Bo Bice, itís no surprise that Austin Curcuruto was named runner up for Up and Coming Drummer of 2010 by Modern Drummer readers.

At just 26 years, Curcuruto has already toured the world with various Nashville based artists including headlining tours with Bo Bice as well as opening slots for rock icons Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

But while he spends much of his time on the road, touring with the American Idol Season 4 runner up, Curcuruto also maintains a busy schedule at home in Music City and in the surrounding area, honing his skills in all genres and studying with respected drummers including David Northrup (Modern Drummer Readerís Poll Winner for Country and Clinician) and Stockton Helbing (Drummer and Musical Director for the late Maynard Ferguson).

Austin proudly endorses Evans drumheads, Pearl, and Promark. Please click below for more info:
