“Great feel and a deep pocket fused with rich textures and colors.”
Todd Sucherman, Styx
“Curcuruto plays well beyond his years, with command and groove, always musical and always song supportive.”
David Northrup, Boz Scaggs
“It was a pleasure working with Austin on my recent sessions with Bo Bice. His kit sounded great and his groove and attitude were outstanding. I look forward to working with him again.”
David Thoener, Grammy Winning Engineer
“It’s refreshing to see a young player that has more passion for music & musicianship than what color his hair and clothes are. Austin Curcuruto is a wonderful player as well as a beautiful cat. Whatever ‘IT’ is… Austin has got ‘IT’!!!!”
Randy Smith, Larry Carlton, Lee Ann Womack
Austin Curcuruto has accomplished a lot in Nashville during the last decade. In 2010 he was named runner up for Up and Coming Drummer by Modern Drummer readers and in the years since, he’s established a solid and steady career for himself in Music City. Curcuruto is currently touring with Grammy winning country legends The Oak Ridge Boys as they perform across North America through 2017. And in recent years, he’s toured the world with various other Nashville artists including Krystal Keith (performing on her father, Toby Keith’s tour), Bart Walker, Craig Campbell and southern rocker Bo Bice, to name a few. As a live drummer he’s performed at the NFL Half-time show, Austin City Limits and the Grand Ole Opry.
But while much of his time is spent on the road, Curcuruto won’t let one gig define him. He also maintains a busy schedule at home in Nashville, recording with various artists that have included Bo Bice, and most recently performing on and co-producing the iTunes New & Noteworthy featured album from songstress Nicole Frechette. Curcuruto performed on NBC’s recording of A Very Merry Christmas and recently worked with Sennheiser and Grammy winning producer Dave Thoener on an initiative for Sennheiser’s Recording Academy.
Austin Curcuruto proudly endorses Evans drumheads, Pearl, and Promark.
