Their latest release is the self titled offering, Ty Curtis, in which he co-produced as well as played drums and percussion.

Brian is most at home playing the right part for the song and supporting the musicians around him. This approach has enabled Brian to perform/record/tour with a wide variety of great artists: Country/Americana artists Eleven Hundred Springs, Soul singer Curtis Salgado, Blues guitarists Mike Morgan and the Crawl, Jazz organist Red Young, bassist Bubba Hernandez, songwriters such as Zane Williams, Chet O'Keefe, Hope Cassity and Jon Christopher Davis, and Gospel artist Quinten Hope and Prestonwood Baptist Church to name a few.
