Seemingly out of nowhere (but actually out of America’s heartland), Matthew Curry is already creating a serious buzz in 2014. Fresh off a six-city tour with the Steve Miller Band this spring, this rising star from Normal, IL has already seen rock star-like standing ovations this year at key festivals both here and abroad, and the lines for his autograph at the merchandise booths are longer than most headliners. Even Steve Miller took to Matthew right away, inviting him to sit in every night on their tour, and calling Matthew a “…wonderful guitar player, great songwriter; in the Stevie Ray Vaughan area of virtuosity and originality. He’s really great.” –Huffington Post

Matthew and his rare combination of youth and maturity have been taking audiences, and the music industry, by surprise with his triple-threat talents of compelling songwriting, dynamic vocals, and incendiary guitar work. Having just turned 19 years old, Matthew has already been adopted by Fender Guitars and Guitar Center into their exclusive “Brotherhood of The Guitar” (http://brotherhoodoftheguitar.com/?team=matthew-curry). Making the crowd reactions even more notable is the fact that Matthew’s set is comprised of all original material. His songs have a classic feel and people are responding immediately to the emotional power of the songs and the excitement of Matthew and his band’s strong delivery.

Watch for Matthew this summer as he tours arenas around the country opening for The Doobie Brothers and Peter Frampton, and on other major festivals and headline shows. The time is now to see this young talent as he starts his march across the national, and international, stage.

“Kid can shout like Joe Cocker, play guitar like a young Jeff Beck and rock like he’s still inside his first pair of shoes.” – Edmonton Sun
“…an authentic blend of original Southern rock, British blues and Jimi Hendrix...” - Rockwrite
