Welcome to the CTS Official Website!

College Transfer Student (CTS) is an American indie rock band founded by myself, Sam Gaytan, in 2009.  Throughout the years, I’ve toured and performed with this project at notable venues in Chicago:

  • The Metro
  • House of Blues
  • Reggies Rock Joint

Founder's Note:

As of 2019, I’ve begun writing new material and want to focus the project on perfecting my craft of songwriting.  As I prepare new material, I’ve also begun looking for new band members in the Denver, CO area.  So feel free to reach out if you’re interested.

With Love,
