CD Review:

I met Curtis Peoples after his show at the Rockit Room in San Francisco. Before he started his set, I thought to myself, He just looks like hes gonna be good. And he was. The lead single from his self-entitled debut benefits from the stellar production of Marshall Altman and features well-defined versus, a strong hook, and a killer bridge that a songwriting teacher or coach could use as an example of how its done. It also succeeds in capturing the essence of Curtis Peoples as an artist and efficiently conveys what he has to offer: a commanding voice that can teeter between tenor and baritone with a raspy edge for distinction, personality, and character. This monster track sounds better every time you hear it. Radio listeners will agree.
