Clinton Curtis grew up between the islands of Jamaica and Key West, Florida, the son of musicians and reggaehall owners. As a kid, he played with and learned from some of the Jamaican giants - Gregory Isaacs, Desmond Dekker and Roots Explosion. By 13, he was fluent on more than a dozen instruments.
At age 18, Clinton moved to New York and began working as a singer in Greenwich Village. It was there in the bars and clubs that defined so much of music history, that he realized he wanted to write popular music. He teamed up with producer Matt Stine, and signed to indie label 27 Sound. Currently, Clinton and his band are a fixture in the downtown NY music scene.
Clinton's music represents the coming together of all the musical genres he has been exposed to throughout his life. From Country to Reggae, from Blues to Bach, Clinton Curtis is a throwback to the great songwriters of the 1960's with the musical versatility and voice of a new artist set on making his mark on today's popular music landscape.
