Though she started as drummer, Curtis first began playing guitar after, at the age of 15, her neighbor gave her one, under the condition that she promise to learn to play it. This act of kindness inspired Curtis to later begin her own endowment – Aspire to Inspire – which provides guitars to budding musicians who cannot afford their own.
Curtis’s songs range from happy love songs across the landscape of the mundane and the big picture. She and co-writer Mark Erelli won the International Songwriting Competition in 2005 with a tribute to Hurricane Katrina victims and the political implications of the storm, titled “People Look Around.”
Now a veteran artist and performer with 9 CD releases under her belt, the New Yorker called a Curtis a “folk-rock goddess”. Audiences know they can expect Curtis to deliver a socially conscious show full of energy and emotional lyrics.
