James Curry 13 on CD

About the Band... James Curry is a 2 piece singer songwriter duet with original music ranging from acoustic dust ballads to electric blues and urban anthems. With echoes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, James Curry's music is rooted in an American Experience of sin, redemption and forgiveness. A James Curry performance also includes a cinematic backdrop of archival film and photos that creates a unique and powerful experience. James Curry is made up of two creative forces, Brian Tischleder and Casey Fearing. For the past 10 years these two have been writing, recording and crafting their sound in their home base of Minneapolis. All the while performing these songs from small town taverns to big city bars across Midwest America. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 'James Curry 13" review Freddy Cellis Rootstime There are albums of which you know by the first track that you have a pearl in your CD player. The latest CD from the Minneapolis singer-songwriter duo James Curry is one of those albums. At the end of last year I received a sample of their debut album 'A brand new suit' from our Roots Time boss. That CD is one of the most reappearing albums. Brian Tischleder and Casey Fearing have been playing together for ten years and produce a mixture of acoustic ballads and electric folk blues. Comparison with Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen (Nebraska style) is absolutely justified. The hoarse, smokey and broken voice off Brian Tischleder is absolutely recognizable and enjoyable. The musical guidance with the songs is kept to minimum by the band and in combination with the mysterious voice it creates, every time, something special you never heard elsewhere. 'Ride Ride Ride' is a song that draws attention because it is compared to other James Curry songs very joyful and easy to sing along. After that it feels all the misery and sorrow is poured over your head in dark songs like 'Angels Hand', 'Demons', 'All The Preachers Say' and 'Gypsy'. Album title '13' seems not to be chosen at random and points more to the unlucky number than the numbers of songs on the CD. James Curry stands up for the Native Americans, a neglected minority group but the original habitants. Indian emotional lament can be heard in 'Hear Me Cry' (Mary Thunder's story). During their live concerts they show a series of old pictures and historical movie images from the illustrious American past with Indians looking into the camera, dull gaze in their eyes, as if they wonder why the new Americans treat them with such cruelty. Pedal steel sounds in 'Streets of Gibraltar' set the tone for the rest of the album. "Johnny' is about a young soldier who is sent off to war in Vietnam. They say good bye to him as a hero while he feels only fear of not surviving the terrible war. 'He thought he heard his mamma, calling from the stairs, saying Johnny boy won't you come back home, you know we still care...say goodbye". All the songs on '13' set a wonderful mood, not necessarily an optimistic one, but you can not avoid becoming silent when you listen to it. 'Rolling the Dice', 'Senorita', 'What Do You Need' and the fantastic 'Until the End' are other silent witnesses of this. We are at the end of a long year and making the year's list of the best CD's of 2007 is going to be a very hard job. But luckily I don't have to doubt the presence of '13' by James Curry. Dear people listen for yourselves and let this group break through. Quickly please. Freddy Celis Rootstime.
