Curtis Peoples, songwriter with a defined understanding of creating a dynamic pop|music—crafting songs that fans of rock, acoustic folk, and pop can enjoy equally. With a|mix of free-spirited choruses and addictive rhythms, Curtis’ style of “coffeeshop arena|rock” is genuinely his own unique musical fingerprint.
Although brand new to the Los Angeles music scene at the time, it took merely a matter|of months for Curtis Peoples to score his first big break via a national tour with friend|and fellow singer-songwriter Tyler Hilton (Warner Brothers Records, One Tree Hill,|Walk The Line). The road certainly agreed with this native of San Diego as tour dates|with Josh Kelley, Hanson, Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers, Tim Reynolds (longtime|Dave Matthews collaborator), Joe Firstman (Carson Daly Show), and others quickly|followed. An appearance on Ryan Cabrera’s on-air songwriting competition MTV’s|SCORE also served as a platform to perform his original material in front of a national|audience.
While gaining a dedicated contingent of fans all around the country via these treks and|media appearances the music industry has also been taking notice. Peoples’ music has|received commercial radio airplay at KMTT (Seattle), KPRI (San Diego), and a number|of college stations. As Keith “Madison” Miller at KPRI puts it, “Curtis has found his|voice…tapped his natural sensibility for writing a tune.” Music Connection Magazine|raves that Curtis Peoples “performs music that is pure pop with a classic-rock vibe. Some songs could have Top 40 appeal, while others have the potential to be excellent for TV or movie placements” and went on to name Peoples as one of the “100 Unsigned Artists To Watch in 2008!” It didn’t take long for the buzz to reach producer Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Kate Voegele, Marc Broussard). After experiencing a live show and a brief initial meeting, Altman agreed to take the helm of Curtis Peoples’ debut album. The resulting album is 10 well-crafted songs, from the hard rocking swagger of “Heart Will Fall” (co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder) and Tom Petty-esque “Back Where I Started” to the acoustic and contemplative “Wake Up” and funky power pop of the Tyler Hilton co-written “Tell Me I’m Wrong.” This stunning collection of music marks the arrival of Curtis Peoples to the next level of his career.
Curtis Peoples’ self-titled debut album released in the summer of 2008 was followed by|extensive national touring with the likes of Jason Reeves, Stephen Kellogg & The|Sixers, Tyrone Wells, Tyler Hilton, Josh Hoge, Graham Colton, and a performance|on The Rock Boat IX.
December 1, 2009 marks the release of Peoples’ new digital EP, ‘All I Want’. This|release features the new single, “All I Want”, two previously unreleased tracks, and the|“All I Want” music video. Available courtesy of The Control Group/Galt Line Music,|fans can expect a sneak peek of these songs during Curtis’ much anticipated fall tour.
