American Songwriter Magazine
was kind enough to feature me in a profile/interview on their website this week! I was interviewed by Mr. Joey Hood, who had this to say:
"On his third full-length release, "Wirewalkers and Assassins", New York-based folk singer Curtis Eller finds the middle ground between silent film "The General" and a banjo-packin’ Jello Biafra. In person, Eller is a gawky 37-year-old man with a bushy moustache and spit-polished loafers. Eller’s songs are an American History 101 course in waking life. He melds well-crafted uptempo barn stompers such as lead single, “John Wilkes Booth (Don't Make Us Beg),” which boasts sharpnel-pointed undertone jabs at Dubya. Currently on tour in Europe, Eller sat down for a chat with American Songwriter..."
You can read the whole interview online here
I think it came out alright even though they edited out the story I told about the 1919 molasses factory explosion in Boston. I guess they didn't want to get the molasses industry lobbyists riled up. I hope you like it anyway. You can stop by my press page
for all the latest CD reviews. See ya soon!
