STONEY CURTIS BAND / Press

“Stoney’s blazing chops burn with lava lamp soul and silver guitar wow.”

“I just got the new Stoney Curtis Cd and was actually quite impressed. There are a few songs on it that fall into the pop ballad area but overall it a real cool blues rock album. The album shows nods to Texas blues, and even Led Zep. I think that the album shows a fresh approach to blues oriented rock and suggest you give it a listen! ”

“I suppose it is to be expected that an artist will always describe the most recent work as “the best yet”, but in this case I would agree. ‘Cosmic Conn3ction’ is a collection of finely-crafted, affecting performances in a variety of styles. Stoney’s vocals have never seemed more relaxed and confident, and the guitar work is mind-blowing. This release is a very good display of Stoney Curtis’ talent, demonstrating not only his musical ability, but also his song writing and singing abilities. For the most part, he’s straight forward; in your face, hard core, just this side of rock, blues. ‘Cosmic Conn3ction’ is but another step toward his ultimate consideration as one of the best guitarist around. I think he deserves it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ”

“STONEY CURTIS BAND Cosmic Connection Provogue PRD 7232 2 (2011) Stoney Curtis 'Cosmic Connection' is everything you would hope for from a psychedelic rock album. It's simply a great power trio rock record with added parts that make a mockery of so much over produced AOR. If Hendrix brought adventure and a sense of the outrageous to the studio all those years ago, then Stoney doesn't so much try to emulate him as fashion some magical moments in his own way. 'Cosmic Connection' is a work all of his own, and like a stick of rock comes stamped with his name from beginning to end. You should order or rush out and buy 'Cosmic Connection', crank up the volume, annoy the neighbours, and pretend you're 19 again and rejoice in psychedelic rock at its very best. ***** Review by Pete Feenstra”

“POWER ROCK BLUES w/ MILEAGE is the perfect description for this musical endeavor. Right out of the gate, Stoney's first tune "Blues and Rock n Roll" establishes that... Wow! The song has that late 70''s Pat Travers vibe ala "Snortin' Whiskey" - type of groove to it... The one thing that caught my ear was how well Sir Stoney recorded, played and sang in the more traditional electric blues like on the song "When Sweet Turns to Sour". Mr. Curtis can captures the legendary classic musical styles and soundz of Hendrix, SRV, and Cream... However, it's Stoney's heavier biker rock & roll side that made me sit up a little higher in my chair to take in some serious notes (no pun intended). I have always had a fancy for Pat Travers', Rick Derringer, and Robin Trower's flair for rock guitar and the blues. I give this Album 5 out of 5 stars ”
