Biography

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. That same year in an interview on BBC Radio 2 with Terry Wogan, Currie hinted that a Del Amitri reunion was a very real possibility, and later that year, the band confirmed they would be playing live shows. A U.K. tour was announced, and as part of it the band played to 8,000 people at Glasgow's SSE Hydro. The following year they released a live record of the tour titled Into the Mirror. Despite the interlude with his old band, Currie continued his solo career, and released his fourth solo record, This Is My Kingdom, in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger
