WYCE 88.1FM / GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN

CLEVE BAKER / CONFESSINGTHEBLUES.COM

“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. BLENDED, IT ALL ADDS UP TO THE AUTHENTICITY OF HIS BLUES ROCK STYLE"

WHAT FANS SAY

“TY IS ONE OF THOSE RARE PLAYERS. HE'S NEVER MADE A BAD ALBUM YET HE FINDS A WAY TO PROGRESS, SOMETHING NEW TO TIGHTEN UP, SOMEWHERE TO EXPERIMENT AND EXPAND THE ENVELOPE. TIPPING HIS HAT TO FLEETWOOD MAC AND THE LAST BLAZING OUT WITH A

SANTANA-ESQUE FURY. SUPERB STUFF"

“ONE OF THE BETTER ALBUMS OF 2012. TY SOUNDS LIKE AN OLD SOUL TRAPPED IN A YOUNG MAN'S BODY. THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD GIVE ANYTHING FOR THE TALENT THAT CURTIS POSSESSES "

“IT'S SIMPLY JUST AN OVERALL GREAT ALBUM THAT GETS BETTER AND BETTER WITH EACH LISTEN. IT'S A MUST IN MY OPINION TO HAVE YOUNG ARTISTS LIKE TY CURTIS CREATING NEW AND CURRENT MUSIC ROOTED IN OLD BLUES AND ROCK. IT'S TRULY A BOLD AND SINCERE ALBUM!"
