Nick Curran Offering Free Reform School Girl

Reform School Girl is the long-awaited return from the unstoppable, high-energy, one-man 50's R&B revivalist known as Nick Curran. Curran describes his music as a cocktail consisting of the sounds of no less than seventeen widely differing musicians blended together with a cup of broken glass. That only begins to characterize the wallop packed by the 98-proof elixir that includes shards of blues, punk, rock n' roll, and rockabilly. His previous release, Dr. Velvet, earned him the 2004 W.C. Handy Award (now known as the Blues Music Award) for "Best New Artist Debut, "and garnered heavy critical acclaim, and even a turn on HBO's "True Blood."

Reform School Girl is a culmination of Curran's multitude of talents: a throwback to his roots, only amped up to the limit. As Curran states, "I've written more songs on Reform School Girl than on any other records. I wanted it to have no filler only good stuff. All my influences are there, from old blues like Lazy Lester, T-Bone Walker and Bo Diddley to girl groups like the Ronettes and the Shangri-Las, to Guns N Roses."

On a sad note: Nick Curran has been diagnosed with cancer of the tongue. He is staying in his hometown of Austin, TX for the next two months to undergo treatment and to prepare for his upcoming tour. A full recovery is expected and he anticipates resuming his full touring schedule afterwards. The Feb. 16th, 2010 release date of his new album 'Reform School Girl' was unchanged.

Curran says, "I think it's one of those life things that happens which reminds you not to take life for granted and help you become the best person you can. I've already changed a lot in a good way and I really think this is gonna turn out to be a positive thing. This ain't what's gonna do me in. I am gonna kick this thing in the ass and then go out and kick some serious ass with my new record! I'm ready to conquer the world."
