Curtis Macdonald is a Contemporary Instrumental artist that weaves a tapestry of New Age, Smooth Jazz and Electronica into a blend that captures the heart and reflects an array of emotions. His lyrical piano melodies and improvised solos compliment the music with a romantic and soulful approach that combined with image inspiring arrangements create an original artistic signature style.

California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, California and
has twenty CDs in release. In 2013, Curtis Macdonald
received Grammy consideration for Best Instrumental Pop
Record for the CMMP release “When Dreams Come True”, and in

After 30 years of creating music in my signature style of New Age instrumentals, EverSound in collaboration with CMMPmusic is releasing “Where the Heart Belongs – The Very Best of Curtis Macdonald”. Coordinated with the help of EverSound's Javier Sanz and re-mastering by Leslie Chew, I had the opportunity to edit down many of the fan favorites in this heartfelt and memorable collection.
Using my talents as a music editor, I wanted to represent many of the tracks as concise radio-edits and reward the listener with versions that portray the major essence of the music.
A few of the tracks, “Everlasting”, “Our Love Is Forever” and "Coast of Dreams” have the talents of vocalist Lucia Imán, who's graceful and haunting wordless vocals compliment the acoustic piano melodies and add an atmosphere of warmth and beauty.

Are you an instrumental artist that would be interested in covering one of my melodic instrumentals?
After many years of composing in the contemporary instrumental/ New Age genre I have always wanted to hear other artists cover a select few of my compositions. As an arranger, I hear in my head many variations of how to interpret these songs, but to give the chance to anyone who would like to arrange their own interpretation would be something special. If interested please visit cmmpmusic.com/acalltocover for more information.
