2/1 Matthew Curry Band

February 01, 2023 06:00 PM until February 01, 2023 09:00 PM

We're excited to welcome Matthew Curry back to the Englewoods on Dearborn stage!!

Matthew Curry has built a multi-generational audience through a deep, pure connection forged with fans that have encountered him via headline appearances and cherished support opportunities from some of the most successful touring artists in the history of music.   Simply, he is a singer-songwriter writing songs that draw from personal inspirations, incorporating elements of blues, rock, southern rock, and old school country in to his repertoire.

Following the release of If I Don't Got You (2014) and Electric Religion (2015), Curry returns with the new EP Shine On.  He is a prolific writer who aims to write and record a new release annually.  When asked about the new songs, he prefers to leave interpretation in some cases to the listener, while being transparently forthcoming with others.  The opener, "Blink of an Eye" finds the songwriter channeling inspiration from the Black Crowes, Eagles perhaps a bit of Chris Stapleton as he sings of the woes losing a woman, out of selfishness. The harder edged rocker "Caroline" is a feel good track.  Curry offers, "the song presents that scenario where many young guys and gals face a young lady's father not pleased about the relationship, and the challenges of sneaking away for the sake of love.  This one is a really fun one to play cause it always seems very easy for the audience to dance and sing along with it."  The title track "Shine On" displays the artist's connection to the beauty of Memphis Soul and Muscle Shoals Southern Gospel Rock that shines with simple purity as he delivers the uplifting yet heavy lyrics. "Matter Of Time" follows with a softer, easy listening tone.  Curry shares, "We've all experienced love that we thought would last eternity, and didn't quite end up working that way."  The final track "Draw The Line" is a bit ambiguous by intent leaving the listener to find personal meaning.  Curry continues to grow year after year as a writer, and is the antithesis of those who created in a confined space. 

Curry is a Midwesterner who proudly articulates it is an honor to call that part of the country home.  He offers, "We're more slow pace, say what you mean and mean what you say, decent type people around here. Somewhat unassuming. I think it also translates to my music as well - it is straight forward without the fads or gimmicks of the day."
