Singer/songwriter Justin Currie was born in Scotland on December 11, 1964. As the bassist/vocalist/chief songwriter for Scottish folk-pop outfit Del Amitri, the Glasgow native released six full-length records between 1982 and 2002 before embarking on a solo career. Currie's proven gift for infectious melodies paired with wry, earnest, and occasionally barbed lyrics carried over to his solo work as well. His 2007 solo debut, What Is Love For, was a highly introspective collection of lovelorn ballads that explored the darker corners of the heart, while 2010's The Great War signaled a return to the bittersweet midtempo jangle pop of Del Amitri. Lower Reaches, his third solo long-player, followed in 2013. ~ James Christopher Monger
