Nick Curran

Nick Curran – R.I.P

Yeah man! I love the pedal. Use it all the time. I really dig it.

Comin’ on like a sci-fi hybrid of T-Bone Walker, Little Richard, and Guitar Slim, guitarist/singer Nick Curran is a powerhouse performer who owes a strong debt to blues and rockabilly artists of the ’50s.

Nick is the leading root, blues, rock’n’roll, rockabilly, punabilly guitarplayer and has played with Deguello, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Vaughan, Charlie Sexton, Hubert Sumlin, Hollywood Fats Band, Paladins and about every other roots artist.

Using a live, one-take technique and vintage recording equipment, Curran uncannily manages to recreate not only the sound but also the spirit of those earlier, wonderful times. Curran was nonetheless able to infuse each track with a freshness, urgency, and vitality that are lacking in many modern blues and rock releases.

Now Nick front his own roots rock n roll band and play guitar with Austin’s most exciting rock n roll band the Flash Boys.

Sidenote: Nick’s Deep Blue Delay has the serial number 666.
