Anthony Curtis is a musician, composer, and teacher devoted to exploring sound. He has founded numerous bands, among them the Anthony Curtis Band (2000-2004), Boom with Pippin Barnett (Curlew, Fred Frith) and Greg LaBudde (Hammersmith, Loibon) (1994-99), Ja’Lu (1990-93), Firehand (1992-93), and Sonic Mandala (1988-91).
One of the most adventurous musicians on the scene today, Curtis combines a fearless approach to music with a staggering instrumental technique that led the Washington Post to describe him as “One of the most advanced guitarists today”, and the Billboard Guide to Progressive Music to call his release One Hour Talisman “the best album of 1997”. His music is a polarizing firestorm of energy and emotion rooted equally in rock, free jazz and ancient mysticism.
