ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most of us know the importance of honesty and integrity. Perley Curtis is no stranger to these words either, as nothing but a pure, honest love for original, traditional country music flows from this gentleman's songs. Curtis is not a native of the south; however, while growing up in Maine, the young Curtis developed a love of country music and its legends like Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn. After first picking up a guitar at age eight, he played his first paying gig when he was just nine years old - at his uncle's wedding reception.

In the eight years following, Curtis performed in bluegrass bands throughout New England before moving to Nashville in 1988. Since his move to Music City, the skilled singer/songwriter/musician has formed a country band of his own and has also earned a reputation as a skilled dobro and steel guitarist, performing with artists such as: Holly Dunn, Becky Hobbs, Johnny Paycheck, Connie Smith, The Reno Brothers, Del Reeves and most recently, Loretta Lynn. Curtis feels that moving to Nashville was a definite turning point in his career, "All of my greatest accomplishments have happened since I've moved to Nashville."

Although multi-talented, Curtis is clear to focus his efforts on his own budding career as a recording artist. He is currently promoting his fourth independently released CD, Heartbreak Town, which showcases his no-frills vocal style and dobro expertise. The ten song CD is packed with tales of Americana. Recording artist Becky Hobbs is quick to praise his work, "From the toe-tapping title cut to the haunting 'Love Without Walls,' the songs on Heartbreak Town shine like pebbles in a mountain stream."

Curtis' career is quickly evolving, and he enjoys looking back on his many successes, counting his most recent six-year tour with Loretta Lynn as a career highlight. "Loretta was always an influence of mine, so it was certainly an honor to be on the road with her." He recently left Loretta to focus on his own solo career. Curtis is in the planning stages for a new CD and is looking forward to finishing it. Rest assured, it will be traditional country music. "It has always been my desire to be an artist. I've performed all over the world as a dobro and steel guitar player for other artists. Now it's my turn to shine."

I have always known that Perley would go all the way. I have known him ever since he played with Dave Pike & Hearts County Band from Mass. I wish Perley all that he wants and needs......

Truly Great Country Music!
GREAT CD-JUST NOT LONG ENOUGH! Country is what we have; just to keep him doing more of it. Wonderful mix and verity. Great steel on Love With Walls; Jernigan and Roberts do a great job also: but Perley is a very positive player and artist. Hope that next new CD isn't far away. If you do not have this in your Country Collection--YOU NEED IT! Perley keep singing and playing that steel and all instruments. Best of Luck

I just recently met Perley Curtis this past summer - and after playing his CD "Heartbreak Town" and two of his other earlier audiocassettes, I can't wait until his new CD comes out - he is the "true" country that we haven't heard for a long time!! The CMA organization could learn a lot from him!! Keep up the wonderful music, Perley - Maine and especially this Mainiac is proud to know you!
