“Florida’s The Currys prove that the most powerful musical harmonies often come from groups of family members…” – PopMatters
“..infectious, radio-ready Americana tunes..” – Elmore
Anchored by the elastic, entwined harmonies that only seem to exist among kin, The Currys have returned with their sophomore LP West Of Here. The follow up to their 2014 debut effort Follow, the latest LP finds brothers Jimmy and Tommy Curry and cousin Galen Curry once again wrapped in their own modern brand of harmony rich Americana. West Of Here is out today and available for purchase on iTunes.
True to its title, West Of Here is an album born on the road. Following their debut Follow,The Currys spent nearly two years on the road before settling down in the studio with producers Chris Keup and Stewart Myers (Lifehouse, Jason Mraz). The LP holds plenty of warm, wistful tracks like “Restless” and “Hold Me Here,”swirling piano, mandolin, bass, guitar and light percussion into the same package, with hooks and harmonies leading the charge. Like the Avett Brothers, The Currys know when to crank up their rootsy stomp, but they are just as inspired by the epic sweep of Bruce Springsteen and the rhythmic soul of Marvin Gaye.
In celebration of release day, the band have shared a live cut of the title track- click below.
It’s been years since The Currys played their first songs together as teenage boys, swapping tunes during a series of annual family reunions. West of Here pays tribute to that history, but it pushes the band forward, too, with one foot in the folksy sound of The Currys’ influence and the other pointing toward something new. In addition to building their fiercely loyal following, the group are continuing to stretch their creative range, contributing the entire soundtrack to the documentary Dooder & the Lighthouse, which has already been accepted to the Gasparilla Film Festival and the Palm Beach International Film Festival.
