Revenge of the singer songwriter

Ok, so Green Day did American Idiot and Neil Young did his part (but the Canadian thing mitigated it a bit) and then....who? Who has written an ALBUM and penned powerful words and metaphors to declare to the world that Americans actually see what's happening...and care. James Curley's voice is as soothing as a hug from mom and as piercing as those roadside Hummer-schredders in Iraq. I love (and miss) the music that only a dedicated and thoughful singer/songwriter can bring to fore and Mr. Curly is a welcomed voice! Last year I fell out of love with music because it stopped exciting me. Is it this age, or my (old) age? The question's been answered and cupid has struck again! I LOVE THIS RECORD!!!

The Wine Gets Better

I've watched and heard James Curley grow as a singer/songwriter and it's hard to put my finger on the moment his songs went from "Woh..." to "Wow!" James has always had a finger on the metaphor and the obvious but with songs like "Poet Laureate" and "TV or Not TV" he exhibits a sophistication of phrasing that is reached by few and appreciated by many. Listening to Manufactured Meaning gives echo to my better thoughts and too many instances of "I wish I'd said that". The literary references are evocative, the musical motif homages to his influences are obviously unconscious and, therefore, pure. Poco, Eagles, Steve Goodman, Joni Mitchell, Spike Curley are all evident to the discerning listener. Restore your faith in songwriters. Take yourself down to the river and enjoy the ride. James Curley can take you there.
