9/2/2019 Ty Curtis
Ty Curtis has a Blues mojo that is alive and kicking – a natural musical treat for all that stand before his stage. His offerings have a throwback Rock and Roll flair with an undeniable southern-fried ambiance. His explosion of emotion-power-packed performances captures the undivided attention of audiences with tantalizing guitar fret work and highly intellectual lyrics.
Add to the mix his exceptional vocals, and in Ty Curtis, you’ve found a classy performer that has ignited an exciting Blues career and a major Blues star in the making. “His ability to think outside the box and blend his influences from other genres of music fit perfectly amongst the assortment of true blues rock style.” – BluesRockReview.com
With 5 albums under his belt Curtis decided to co-produce his 6th album ‘Blame Me’ with the help of Austin producer and bassist Nick Jay (Ed Kowalzick, Alpha Rev & SXSW engineer). Packed with soul, blues and ripping guitar riffs, Ty’s latest effort features some of the most heart-felt, emotion-tugging vocals to come out in several years. The album received some of the best reviews of his career and was selected as #9 Top Blues Rock Albums of 2016 by Bluesrockreview.com.
