Episode 6: Joe Curtis
About the Artist
Joe's music has been warmly described as an intimate and compelling blend of roots, rock, folk, pop, and blues. He creates a space filled with musical moments that borrow from the past, but live in the present. Songs carried by powerful melodies and his soulful voice. Whether playing a house concert or packed club, his shows take listeners from reflective moments to soulful searing blues and R&B, all delivered with the passion to raise people out of their seats.
In addition to working regularly playing his music around his hometown of Winnipeg, Joe is also frequently sought out for live and studio session work.
An important part of Joe’s life is his work investing time in his musical community. One example, is his 10 year plus relationship teaching and mentoring youth in programs at Broadway Neighbourhood Centre in Winnipeg. He is also a founding member of Winnipeg’s Prairie Soul Collective of Afro/Canadian musicians.
Always working, you can catch Joe either solo or with his band playing regularly around Winnipeg. In addition to his ongoing work supporting many musical projects around Winnipeg, Joe is also working on his debut release..
