ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kurtis fell in love with music as a small child; in fact his favorite toy was a Fisher Price record player. He wore out 3 of them because he played them so much. He always loved any kind of musical instruments and if he could get his hands on any he would try to figure them out and play something on it. But his biggest love was singing and he use to sing to his Mom in the kitchen when he was 5. He always wanted to be a singer in a band and always gravitated towards music that was vocally strong.

He picked up the drums and practiced as much as he could, playing along with music he loved to listen to. He then started playing with friends in punk bands, just jamming and having fun. While all this was going on he was constantly writing lyrics for songs in his head. He decided to start his own band and with a few friends got an 80’s Hair Metal band together. Still only playing the drums they looked for singers but none fit the bill. They were recording their first demo in a little studio in Concord and still had no singer. So they all looked at each other and said ok who can sing the best. So with no vocal lessons Kurtis laid down the vocal tracks on the first demo. After that demo he took lessons and came out from behind the drums to front the band. That band was called Jaded Heart and Kurtis fell in love with being the front man.

Soon after becoming the front man he bought a guitar and started learning to play it on his own. Trying to add music to the large amount of lyrics he had piled up. After the crash and Burn of 80’s rock and roll Kurtis kept on writing, but his style has always been more on the folk side. So all the songs had a country type sound to them, along with the country sound in his vocals it all fit.

As time passed he got into two cover bands that he is still playing in. One band called The Rock O’Matics he plays the drums and sings lead vocals. He then got into another cover band called Dead Wait as the Lead singer. Both bands in 2008 decided to record demos at the same time to help sell the bands. While in the studio recording these demos Kurtis realized how much he has always wanted to record his own CD of his own music. So he hooked up with the studio’s producer and the 2008 CD Parcae became the fruits of his labor of love. During the recording of Parcae Kurtis was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. With the notion that he could lose his vocals or damage them with surgery he quickly finished all the tracks and mastering before the day of the knife. He is currently practicing with both bands and almost fully recovered vocally.

Bring the Country Home
When i got the record, the first thing I thought was O-goodies, another country record... but then, as Tom said perfectly below... you get hooked.. The lyrics are heart felt, well said, and plain old tear-jerking for the most part... I love the balance of Pop and Country. Really makes it a nice record to spend a car ride with. This is a great record.. Nice to see Kurtis hit the road with this one... best wishes brother... and all ya'll buy the god damn thing.. support artist.. and enjoy the music of the man, the myth the Legend... K*U*R*T*I*S .. ;) Peace out!!!

A Remarkable Accomplishment!!!
You don't have to know Kurtis for long to know that his passion is his music. His passion comes out in every lyric and bit of music on this album. The vocals are heartfelt and the instrumentals are solid across every track. This album is quite a remarkable achievement and just a joy to listen to!!!

Dead Wait Band Mate
This disc becomes addictive, the more you listen the more you want to here. As a fellow band member I personaly was blown away by the essence of country that Kutis brought to this album. We all knew he was making a solo album but had no idea it would have such heartfelt lyrics and mixture of country and country rock. In Dead Wait Kurtis ROCKS, but this "WOW". The band was particularly taken back by Unconditional Love and Rebecca so much so that by our next rehersal we suprised Kurtis by learning Unconditional Love, with any luck he will let us play it for him to sing in concert. Congradulations Kurtis, your solo album is awsome and we all hope the public enjoys it as much as we have. Its a privilidge and honor to share the stage with such a gifted individual. God Bless

Beautiful songs!!!
I had this CD for a little while now. I have been listening to it almost every day. Kirk sings it with so much passion and love. You can feel it in every song and every beat. My absolute favorite one is Send Me an Angel. I just love the lyric, the music, and the presentation of this beautiful song.
