St. Louis artist Curtis says he’s looking to get with a band, and from the skills we hear on his recordings, we think he’s ready. Jazzy guitar licks and sparse drumbeat (along with synth horns) provide an old-school platform for his R. Kelly / Boyz II Men-flavored lead vocals on “#luv,” where he’s brimming with good vibes, high on life and the love he has for his girl. Shifting to the sensual, Curtis delivers the smokey, sexy “Bourbon & Fire,” riding a good, laidback beat amid a mist of deep reverb. Perhaps his strongest outing is “Feeling You Feeling Me” and it’s clearly his best-produced song. Curtis says he’s ready for his “boojy crew” and we wholeheartedly agree. Next step up.... even better material.
