Alan Curtis

"On his first solo album, “More Than I Can Be,” Alan Curtis blends an array of roots rock influences with creative arrangements. The CD opens with “Ten in Heaven,” a retro allusion that could lend itself to the likes of Brian Wilson or The Traveling Wilbury’s while not swaying too left of contemporary. Through vocally driven songs, Curtis establishes his unique character while also keeping the layering fresh and engaging throughout. With a heartfelt piano ballad as heard on the title track “More Than I Can Be” followed by dance inducing beats, Curtis’s love for rock n roll is lucid in each song. Feel the driving drum beats on “Greed (Money, Money, Money)” while vocals belt out melodic lyrics and the organ holds solid chord progressions. If your old Tom Petty records have lost their thrill, this new CD may be a solid successor." -Max B.
