Arizona's KTVK family welcomed me on their "Good Morning Arizona!" show. It was a pleasure and an honor to be there. It is apparent that the AZFamily at KTVK enjoy what they do, and take pride in their professionalism. A big thank you to my AZFamily as well as my dedicated Street Teamers for your support. I know you can go anywhere to listen to musicians, and yet you choose to include me in your listening choices. I am honored. Best wishes, Keith Curtis
Written on: Sunday, February 11, 2007 Posted to blog on RN: Thursday, November 13, 2008 Howdy, Like most "acoutsic" musicians, I learned, some time ago, that unless you get struck by lightning or accidentally run into a country singer looking for a "meaningful" song for their next album, you are in it for the love of the song, not the money (I obviously didn't learn to write short sentences.) But, if you really do love the music, you can come and go and write and play and the folks in whatever venue you have in your neighborhood will appreciate what you do and come back again to see you. 25 years ago you could make $50/night playing covers of Cat Stevens and Carly Simon and Paul Simon and James Taylor, today, you can make $50/night doing the same songs, throw in a few of your own tunes and have a fun night. It's about the songs. You have to love them, you have to feel them and you have to live outside yourself to write songs that others will hook into and come back to see you, wherever you play. I've been out of music for about 4 years, and just getting back in again. Feet aren't quite wet yet, but I think I feel a drop or two of water on my toes. I'll hopefully be putting together a show or two around the Phoenix area. Keep an eye out. If you still love the music, it's a fun night out and unless you want to buy every CD I ever made, relatively cheap. I'll be in touch. You can take the musician out of the music but not the music out of the musician. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Saturday, November 16th, I will perform on the Good Morning Arizona show at the KTVK station in Phoenix. My appearance will be at approximately 9:45 A.M.
Hello, fans and fellow musicians: The new album project is taking shape. There was a conflict regarding the vocal microphone I was using. I fixed that. It was a bit of a setback, but it's all for the better. One of the songs needed special attention to the instrumentation. I wracked my little brain day and night to come up with the right sound for it. Finally got it. What this all means to you, is that I am constantly occupied with the production of this project, and rarely able to break away to drop in and say "Hello!" By the first part of the new year, this album will be in the box. There's no good way to describe the style. The songs fall into the category of Americana, although most of them can be "New Country." That's it for the moment. It might seem like you're whistling in the wind, but I hear you. I just can't whistle back right now. I'll check in again soon. Best wishes, Keith Curtis
From the Manager: The new release, "Fork In The Road," is almost done. "Almost" doesn't mean anything in the music world. To us, here at the Ambage House, it sounds -- well -- like something we'd like to hear. When we stick our "Fork In The Road" into the repertoire, we will give our fans first priority for free downloads. We will give our fans plenty of time to grab the songs and chew on them for awhile before we open them up to the general public. Our fans are premium fans; not your ordinary fickle fans. We're going to do our best to deliver for them. Our fans work as hard as we do. It takes dedication to be a premium fan. Our fans give something up to take the time to listen to our songs. There ought to be something in it for them. Personally, as the manager, I am stunned by the sounds of "Sailor" and "Lean Times." That's it for now. I'll let you go get done what you have to do today. Keith is mixing the sound, or he would have posted this. I'll just say thanks to all who support his music. Until next time, take care, Anna Diera Manager for Keith Curtis
Hello, and here's today's news: ClearChannel has accepted my song "Open Road" for radio play on the Web. Their "NEW! program offers music to 400 radio stations, and according to them, reaches ten million listeners each month. THANK YOU FANS AND LISTENERS! Keith Curtis
I'm thinkin' I can run with the Big Dogs if I get my butt in gear! If I'd put as much into the WEB design as I do for the music, maybe then I can run with the big dogs. The lyrics for the songs on ReverbNation are being added to the songs a few at a time. Well? That's somethin' at least. The vocals on my unreleased project are kind of slowing me down right now. Somethin' ain't right there. But I'll get her back on the road shortly. Thank you fans, especially "OL'GA BOY, BILL" for listening. There must be 700,000,000,000 songs out there for you to listen to, and you pick mine. I am honored. Best, Keith Curtis
Hello, fans: Thank you for signing up as a "Keith Curtis" fan. I want you to enjoy what you find here, on Reverbnation. Please keep in touch. I would like to hear from you. Sincerely, Keith Curtis
Hello fans and friends: The album "From The Attic" is available at CDBaby.com Individual song sales are pending through our regular distrubutor, TheOrchard.com It's all Americana. You could see it from the back seat of the car on a family vacation. Or, you can buy it and bring it to you. Save yourself the price of gasoline, and the discomfort of a full bladder between rest stops. And those great big well-fed ants around the trash barrels! Ray Pietre, are there rest stops in Belgium? I mean, it does not take so long to cross the country. Does it?
If you decide to sign up as a fan, there could be something in it for you. Maybe you want to be part of my Street Team on Reverbnation. There's probably a way to do that somewhere on one of my pages. If not, then flog me. (I'll love it.) Then I'll be motivated to give you an easier way to join up. I have a silly song that loves you. We'll talk more about that later. Think about it while I get my stuff together. Best, Keith Curtis
