“There are two types of music: music I like and music I don’t like”. This genre inclusive 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 dedicated to learning, creating and pushing the boundaries of the guitar 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: great melodies, virtuosity, and soulful playing.
