Born: September 8, 1981    

Trumpeter / composer Chad McCullough has been on an upward trend for years. He has three critically-acclaimed albums under his own name, several tours around the globe, and has played a key role in countless ensembles and projects.

Accompanied by an A-Team of Seattle's best, McCullough presents a well balanced program of what I call “Music for Adults”. There is nothing light weight associated with this production... yes, this is The Real Deal! A must have CD.”
