Curren Effinger / Press

“If the unique name weren’t enough, rising scene star Curren Effinger is an artist who gives a memorable performance every time. A regular at coffeehouse venues, this young man certainly knows how to rock. His sound is reminiscent of British stars such as Patrick Wolf or Morrissey — an edgy, yearning vocal set to electric guitar. Young, eager, hungry and backed by Hannah McDaniel on percussion, Effinger is sure to live up to his new website moniker, “The Sound & the Fury.””

“Curren Effinger has made large strides in recent years with his music and has shown that he intends to continue being a part of the Twin Ports music community. Having just recently graduated from high school, young Effinger has been regularly playing shows in the area and has taken advantage of giging at the few all ages venues that the scene has to offer.”

“The old saying might be "youth is wasted on the young," but it's certainly not in the case of Curren Effinger. At 17, he's already entering his second year as a Homegrown performer. When his "old" band, Presently Skyward, called it quits, Effinger decided to take his indie-jazz guitar style and start work as a solo artist. He's already built a repertoire of 30 original songs and has a growing back catalog of demos, bootlegs and videos that will hopefully lead to a debut album. He's recently added Dave Johnson's savvy stick work to accompany him on stage.”
