Songs with a Story
Music with a Heart
“Listening to the songs of singer/songwriter/storyteller Curtis Brand leaves one with that peaceful, easy feeling of a barefoot summer’s evening; of relaxing on the back porch in a pair of faded old jeans, favorite beverage in hand, surrounded by best friends. His music, his stories, and even the essence of the man himself, just put folks into a state of laidback easiness. Brand’s songs gently reveal common threads of everyday life; touching on both the humor and melancholy that’s there for the taking."
"Curtis’ unique “down east” humor coupled with his do-it-yourself ingenuity makes him an authentic Yankee. He’s got a grit and determination that keeps him grounded and practical while, at the same time, a real humanitarian. There’s a hint of Willy Nelson in his sound and a glimpse of Harry Chapin in his storytelling--and he can really deliver on storytelling, which makes his live performances so appealing. His first CD, “Older than Dirt ” is musical smorgasbord of comfort food; there’s hardly a listener whose heartstrings won’t be tugged on more than once. Curtis Brand is changing the face of local, live music, and other musicians in the area are joining this grassroots movement; they’re saying “no” to the “corporate” music paradigm and that’s a good thing for every music lover.”
