Carlos Solorzano is a professional drummer & songwriter from Southern Arizona.

He efforts as a composer have earned him multiple ASCAPLUS Awards as well as a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

Aside from his own creative endeavors he also works in the Tucson music scene both as a live performer as well as a session drummer.

He also has a solo drumming act where he adapts world rhythms to the American drum set and through the use of 4-way independence can imitate the sound of a percussion combo. He has performed this act all over Arizona both as a solo performer and in a Master class setting at places such as the world famous Music Instrument Museum, Arizona Black Film Festival AFASA African Festival, Tucson Morning Blend television show, Pima Community College and at nightclubs, city events and other festivals.

As an educator he has taught percussion at the high school level and has recently released his first drumming book titled "Precision Drumming Volume One: Exercises for Accuracy and Endurance in Common Time." He is also planning to release some tutorial videos on the book on his You Tube Channel real soon.

He is also endorsed by Ahead Sticks & Percussion Products, Drum Dots and Hansenfutz Pedals. He is thrilled to be part of the Soultone Artist Roster as he has been using these amazing cymbals for over 10 years now!

"Soultone Cymbals are the best cymbals I have ever used! They not only sound amazing but feel so good to play. Their sound is as beautiful as their appearance and I am so honored to be a part of the Soultone family."
