New York-based drummer, composer, and bandleader, Curtis Nowosad, has developed a reputation as a highly-skilled, versatile, and forward-thinking musician.

The quartet is featured alongside tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene, pianist Taylor Eigsti, and other special guests, on The Skeptic & the Cynic, a collection of instrumental jazz covers by popular artists such as Michael Jackson, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Black Star, and 2Pac, which are complemented by Curtis’ original compositions.

‘Cloudscapes’ by Nils Loewen

“There is always more than the eye or the camera can see. Through layered exposures and digital manipulation, unseen colours and depth emerge to reflect reality – that there is always more than we can see.

Nils moved from Winnipeg to the Okanagan in 2012 to play cello in the duo ‘Windborn’. He is now involved in the musical and artistic community of Kelowna as much as possible between extensive touring and summers spent treeplanting.”
