Curt Sydnor is a composer and keyboardist living in Richmond, VA. In March 2020 he released his second album Deep End Shallow on NYC-based Out of Your Head Records. Everything Is Noise called it "absolutely nothing anyone would've expected." Take Effect calls it "one of the most atypical listening experiences of 2020." Something Else! says it "appreciates with every listen." Sydnor plays organ at historic St. John's Church in Richmond and teaches at Greenspring Int'l Academy of Music. He has released five albums under his own name of mostly original music. In 2022 he received a grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts to complete his sixth release, slated for late 2023.
