Biography

Alan Curtis is an avowed beachnik residing on the island of Oahu, HI. The natural beauty that abounds in every direction provides a continuous source of inspiration for him. Often that inspiration will find artistic expression through the music he writes and records in his studio. At least on those days that he is able to resist the lure of sun, wind, and sea.

As a youngster growing up just outside of Washington, DC, he was introduced to Afro-Cuban rhythms and music by many of the Cuban refugees whom he befriended. These happy, infectious rhythms and harmonies made a lasting impression and usually find their way into many of his songs and arrangements. Alan has both lived and toured in Latin America as well, which has served to further broaden his musical pallette.

His immediate plans are to continue learning to love God with heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love neighbor as himself. He is very excited to have an opportunity to bless others through music. From the most remote archipelago on the planet, he is able to broadcast his music to the remotest parts of the planet and everywhere in between. The irony is not lost on him.
