The Curst Sons
The Curst Sons unique take on Americana mixes traditional roots genres with gutsy live shows and powerful original songs.
They gnarl and twist together elements of bluegrass, rockabilly, country and blues and spew forth a sound that is instantly recognisable as their own. What may be overlooked is the fact that the Curst Sons are damn fine songwriters as well as potent lyricists.
If it is true that the Devil has all the best tunes, then he must undoubtedly have nicked some of them from The Curst Sons. Ken Brown FATEA
They’ve got humour and soul and there’s absolutely nothing else like them. MORNING STAR
The Curst Sons never fail to deliver a foot-stompin, barnstorming performance of such intensity you’re left grinning like an idiot by the end! Hastings Independent Press
Now in their nineteenth year they have released 6 CDs and one 10” vinyl EP on their own Curst Mountain label. They have been Runners up in the international Song Writing Competition (ISC), nominated for Best Alt Country Album in the Independent Music Awards and for Best Americana Act in the British Country Music Awards.
They have played far too many pubs, clubs and festivals to remember, twice been Time Out magazine’s critic’s choice and recorded two live sessions for much missed Mark Lamarr show on BBC Radio 2.
