Kurt had been hibernating from songwriting and performing since 1994… But in 2017 things changed….since then Kurt has performed over 250 shows!! Currently, he is churning out new songs that provide a soundtrack to life’s events. The songs posted here present both new creations and a ‘retrospective’ of Kurt’s journey through music… from today’s storytelling/alt-country vibe back to rocking years with hints of early alternative rock. Most of the songs are recorded in a very ‘organic’ way…no overdubs; only simple guitar and vocals. about his songwriting and recording, Kurt says ‘I would rather folks hear the songs in the process. It’s more like life…unedited and sometimes messy.’
Kurt was brought up in the foothills of North Georgia where he was surrounded by the music of his mom and dad and extended family. Gospel, classic country, blue.grass, and rock were equally blended to shape Kurt’s taste in music. He taught himself how to play guitar at 14 and began to play at church. Soon after he formed a rock band and played throughout high school. Afterward, he joined the Air Force and continued playing. He recorded a CD in 1992 which is on Reverb Nation along with several demos from that same era. Recently, Kurt has released several of his new songs and is out playing shows. He is the founder of the band The Lathemtown Poets Society.
