About

A Story Steeped in Sound

Cavan Curran’s musical identity is founded on a reverence for the great American singer-songwriters like Dylan, Cash, Neil Young, Petty, Tom Waits and the progenitors of glam rock - Bowie, Lou Reed and Marc Bolan, of his parent’s era. Throw in a truck load of Grateful Dead, and one can safely assume the remainders. 

The sculpting of Curran’s own sound was a labor of love, beginning with a DIY(and friends) pet project LP “Paper Canoe” in 2007, along side several tours of duty MC’ing open mics, and some years cycling through Philadelphia’s small venue circuit fronting the band Captive Kin. 
In 2014 he teamed up with former Chimeras frontman Dan Ferry, to found the rock band RidgeSummit.  

After releasing two EPs, RidgeSummit went into Hiatus and Curran found himself with more to say. He assembled sessions with some of his favorite musicians and created his most focused and thorough recordings on the full length “American Stag” album.

Having come into his own, Curran crafts a unique, yet familiar sound. Lyrically, he effuses the brashly honest, sometimes satirical wit of his folk heroes, and his musical styling covers the American rock bases with guitar driven bangers, sea shanties, and organ infused ballads. While he is somewhat of a throwback, he is in no way a cultural dinosaur, nor is he preoccupied with toiling over trying to replicate the sound of yesteryear. The songs are a modern take on the American story and they combine elements from the early days of rock n roll all the way up to today. Mostly straight-forward , what matters most is to channel the forces that move us all, the good and the bad, downtrodden and uplifting, and the perplexing unknowns in between.
