The Curst Sons have been performing their original roots influenced music since 1998. Their sound mixes traditional American genres with powerful original songs and gutsy live shows. Their inspiration is the pre-Rock n’ Roll world of Blues, Gospel and Old Time - given a jolt of electricity and a kick-ass stomp.
Since 1998 they have released six studio albums, one 10” vinyl EP, a live digital EP and their first single SHINE a SMILE was release on 18th Jan 2024. It is taken from the album New Signs and Old Visions scheduled for release in August 2024.
"Their biggest appeal is that they manage to stay true to American folk music’s rich lineage, while throwing in enough curve balls to piss off the folk puritanicals." - AMERICANA UK
"They gnarl and twist together elements of bluegrass, rockabilly, country and blues and spew forth a sound that is instantly recognisable as their own. What may be overlooked is the fact that the Curst Sons are damn fine songwriters as well as potent lyricists. If it is true that the Devil has all the best tunes, then he must undoubtedly have nicked some of them from The Curst Sons." - Ken Brown FATEA
"One of the best, if most unlikely, acts to come out of Brighton – hands down – this brilliant trio plays bluegrass, gospel and rockabilly as if their lives and loves depended on it, mixing Americana classics with tuneful originals full of superior lyrics." - Time Out
