“Charlotte-based pianist and singer-songwriter Curtis Hayes, aka Curt Keyz has released his latest project, CURT(IS). And in this round, he’s reintroducing himself over a 17-song tracklist of wide-ranging, cohesive themes focusing on love, faith, family, resilience, and identity.
CURT(IS) is an exploration of identity. It explores Curtis Hayes, a Black man, a Southern man, a man who has experienced love and loss, a man who is rooted from a generation of resilience, and a man who is loved by God and his community. With a first listen that warms the heart and liberates the feet, CURT(IS) is bound to be a pivotal project for the Charlotte singer-songwriter.” – Jamel Smith, CLTure
