Today, finally, marks the official release of our sophomore album West of Here! Many of you who contributed to our Kickstarter campaign or attended a pre-release show in Virginia have obtained an advance copy, but we’re excited to finally share the album with everyone else. It has been just under two years since we released our debut, Follow, in which time we have been dutifully writing, recording, and preparing to release these new songs. They mean a lot to us, and we hope you all enjoy…Read More

This coming week we head up to New York for several shows and the official release of West of Here on March 25th. We’ll be way upstate in Heuvelton on Thursday, March 24th, before heading back to the metro area to play Jersey City and Manhattan on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Check the “SHOWS” page for more details on the upcoming gigs. We also are planning a digital makeover to coincide with the release… stay tuned!
Back in October while we were recording West of Here, our dear friend and cinematographer extraordinaire Jared Macary joined us at the studio to shoot some interviews with each of the Currys for a short “Making Of” documentary. Among the questions: Why have you chosen music as your career?What are your hopes for this album? Among the answers: Taylor Swift covering all our songs would be IDEAL and What exactly is the smell of a HungryMan TV dinner that features both fried chicken…Read More
The second single from West of Here drops today! Galen’s “Firestarter” can be heard exclusively at Elmore Magazine and starting tomorrow will be available for streaming on Soundcloud. The good folks over at Elmore were kind enough to write up a brief band profile and review. Here’s a teaser: “When [The Currys] began, they stuck close to roots, with a strict focus on heavy harmonies and layered instrumentation of the mandolin and guitar. Now, with a growing fan base behind them, thanks in part to national tours that…Read More
Finally, it’s here… your first chance to listen to a song from the new album! Today, the first single from West of Here premieres on the pop culture website PopMatters. “If I Find It” was one of the last songs written for the record, and it was really brought to life in the studio, so much so that we dubbed it the first single and have begun work on a music video for the song (more on that to come). It’s available exclusively at…Read More
2016 has begun, and with it comes… Kickstarter rewards! Many of you out there were integral in helping us raise the capital to record our second album West of Here, and before we get ahead of ourselves we should say, once again: THANK YOU! Now, at last, we can prove our gratitude by beginning to fulfill your Kickstarter rewards. This week we started recording the many cover videos that were requested (everything from Nat King Cole to Counting Crows). We’ll also be spending time painting/drawing/collaging,…Read More
This coming weekend we’ll be playing a trio of shows in Bay County, our first ever shows with Mike and Maggie McKinney of Lucky Mud Music. We’ll be playing three shows on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Check out the “Shows” page or the Lucky Mud website for showtimes and locations. All shows are free but with a suggested donation, except for the Sunday show at Roberts Hall which has a $5 ticket. Looking forward to a great weekend!
Welcome to the new year! We Currys are in the final week of our Florida winter tour, which has seen us all over the northern half of the state, shuttling back and forth between Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and home-sweet-home Port St. Joe. It has been a wonderful holiday season full of family, friends, fans, and even the occasional jingle horse. 😉 Next week we’ll be leaving FL for the cooler climes of central VA, where we will dive back into the work of…Read More
The last few weeks have been crazy, which is our way of excusing/apologizing for the long delay in a blog post here. Next excuse: This will be a brief post because we’ve got to wake up in mere hours to drive a dozen hours to Virginia for a show on Friday. So, the highlights of the past few weeks: – After a whole crazy month of tracking, we finished recording the new record and sent it off with our sound engineer, Stewart…Read More
After spending four full days in the studio this past week, we’re now about halfway through tracking the new album. The songs are starting to come together as we near the end of rhythm tracking (drums, bass, acoustic guitars), and much of this next week will feature mandolin and electric guitar tracking, along with a bunch of harmony vocals. We’ve also got tentative plans to bring in a pedal steel player, a pianist/organist (who plays with Ryan Adams), and our good…Read More
