For over a decade Ryan Curtis has been constantly working in various genres of roots music, blues, soul, vintage sounding rock n’ roll, but his latest, Rust Belt Broken Heart released early this year on American Standard Time was his solo debut. Ryan’s songs are usually about life’s harder learned lessons, featuring picaresque heroes whom he gives a very personal feel. Rust Belt Broken Heart dives deep into the different styles of country and western while telling tales from his youth in the Midwest from Michigan to Illinois. The gravelly voice of the Michigan born, Boise based singer has been praised on KEXP and No Depression. He co-fronted Curtis/Sutton & The Scavengers, whose 2017 album Whiskey Rain put them on the playlist of keen country and roots music listeners. Ryan also fronts The Weary Times, whose gritty soul sound has made them a constant fixture at venues and festivals in the Northwest.
