At just 17 years old Curtis Walsh already has a number of impressive accolades under his belt including the IMRO 2017 Christie Hennessy Songwriting Competition, The Una Healy (The Saturdays) Music Scholarship and slots at notable European music festivals including Electric Picnic.
The young singer/songwriter’s masterful live performances have steadily built him a strong and dedicated fanbase over the past 12 months, and has led to support slots for major acts such as LANY, Tom Walker and The Academic. Curtis now comes forward with his debut offering ‘Full Recovery’ (released July 27th), recorded and produced by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Talos).
‘Full Recovery’ is an impressive introduction to an artist who is equally adept at writing great pop hooks as he is at tackling topics that are seemingly beyond his years. An earnest and powerful track, ‘Full Recovery’ gives us more than a glimpse of the huge potential that this young artist possesses and sets Curtis up to be the artist to watch this summer.
On the track Curtis says; “At the time of writing Full Recovery I was seeing someone who was going through a lot and she really let it get her down. I could relate to some of what she was going through from past experiences. During these past experiences I remember being in Dublin one evening and met a homeless man. I spoke to him briefly and realised that some people out there have it a lot worse than I do. After that it kind of changed my general mindset and how I looked at situations. I wrote Full Recovery to try to change the mind frame of the person I was seeing so she would realise no matter how bad the situation is, that with a bit of patience and trust, everything will eventually be okay.“
