Stoney Curtis Recording at Prairie Sun!

    Continuing on for nearly two weeks after finishing with basic tracking, Stoney Curtis has perfected the licks for his upcoming record The Cosmic Connection.  He has laid down some extremely blistering guitar over the top of already smashing tracks.  In addition to that, Stoney’s vocals have been finished and polished to a brilliant sheen. 

    Guiding the sessions is Mike Varney of Shrapnel Records fame.  Mike has worked with insanely talented individuals such as Eric Gales, Tony MacAlpine, Greg Howe, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Michael Schenker.  To add to that, Stoney Curtis certainly holds his own among these heavy hitters of the guitar world.  Not to be overlooked is Jason D’Ottavio (Eric Gales, Chris Duarte) at the board bringing out the gold in every note, lick, and riff. 

    Growing up on the South side of Chicago, Stoney grew up listening to the sounds of Black Sabbath, Robin Trower, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton.  He combines all these influences.  Drawing on his background of psychedelic rock, traditional blues, and hard rock, Stoney Curtis has found a very comfortable niche in the blues community.  His world class sound is like no other and for good reason.  There are very few people that can play guitar as well as he can, and even fewer that have his charisma and none have his unique technique and flavor.
