About Us

There are things you \"want\" and things you \"need\". Playing guitar, writing and performing music is something Curtis
needs; like water and air.

\"There are two types of music: music I like and music I don't
like\". This genre bending approach has exposed Curtis to an
ocean of music. Distilled over time, this wide variety of
influences has emerged and helped shape his unique musical
voice. The primary vehicle of his musical expression is the
guitar. Starting on classical guitar at the age of 11, Curtis has
spent his life dedicate to learning, creating and pushing the
boundaries of the instrument and his music. To the new listener
his guitar driven music sounds like Rock but quickly the
currents of Jazz, Blues, Surf, and Country can be heard along
with the common thread that ties them all together: <i>great
melodies, virtuosity, and soulful playing</i>.
