Curtis Roush

Curtis Roush is an Austin-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is a veteran of the Austin music scene, having played guitar and sung in psychedelic rock band The Bright Light Social Hour for a number of years. Following a number of personal hardships, Roush began working on his solo project, an album entitled Cosmic Campfire Music. This new territory is distinctly softer than his past work, combining 70s pop/rock sounds of bands like The Eagles with modern psychedelia and production cues drawn from experimental groups like Animal Collective.
