With our constantly shifting sound and inspiration, we hope to remind ourselves and our audience of a human being's place in the universe. We are all experiencing this weird thing called life, together."

Saxophonist Curtis Haywood has always been in touch with the healing spirit of music. His earliest memory of his attachment to music is an anecdote his mother shares with everyone. “When I was about 5 or 6 years old, I received my first instrument – a trumpet. When it was bedtime I absolutely refused to go to bed without it. Now being of West-Indian descent, my parents were obviously not trying to have any ‘back mout' from dis here little child! Finally, convinced that they had lost the battle, they allowed me to sleep with my trumpet."
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Haywood’s early love for music eventually led to his being chosen from some 5,000 candidates to attend New York's prestigious High School for the Performing Arts. He went on to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied audio engineering. He counts among his musical influences Grover Washington Jr., David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, Kenny Garrett, and his aforementioned namesake, 'King Curtis'.
