Curtis S.D. Macdonald

Curtis Stuart Dalton Macdonald (born Febuary 20, 1962) is a new age, jazz and contemporary instrumental keyboardist, composer, arranger and producer.

The music Curtis Macdonald creates evokes emotional and passionate feelings. His soulful contemporary weaving of jazz and new age music is stylized with an effervescent and transparent wash of modern electronica that becomes the foundation for his memorable acoustic piano melodies and lyrical improvisations that are heartfelt and reflective with a dash of cool.

During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Curtis Macdonald played a role in turning contemporary instrumental and new age more mainstream.

“Give this one a listen if you want to enjoy some of the best piano-based chill-out music out there. “When Dreams Come True” is so infectious, so engaging, so accessible, it's damn near irresistible. If you count yourself a fan of artists such as Ryan Farish or Dave Mauk, you ought to add this CD to your collection.” - Bill Binkelman (New Age Reporter)
