Here is a little more about who Curt Bisquera is:
Born in Stanta Maria, California, he began playing drums at age 3. Shortly after finishing High School, he ended up as a student in the inception of Hollywood’s P.I.T., known now as Musician’s Institute. After 2 tours with Morris Day, he went on to work with other R&B artists including Shalamar, Sheena Easton, Pebbles and then in 1990, got hired for his first, big Rock tour, with The Go-Go’s Belinda Carlisle. During his time with Carlisle, producer Don Was got wind of Curt and hired him for his first session.
His first session was, needless to say, a home run – Bonnie Raitt’s “Luck Of The Draw”. Bonnie’s single, “Something To Talk About”, became a huge hit, won her a Grammy and launched Curt Bisquera into the major leagues of session drummers. He’s not stopped since. What followed were a string of hit records featuring Curt’s drumming, including Seal’s hugely successful debut, self-titled album, Paula Abdul’s “Spellbound”, Public Image’s “That What Is Not”, Elton John’s “Duets”, Leonard Cohen’s “Tower Of Song” and Celine Dion’s “Falling Into You”. He also became busy in the film session scene, working on soundtracks for “She’s The One”, “The Craft”, “The Bourne Supremacy” and Christopher Guest’s comedy, “For Your Consideration”.
