Ralph Curtis is a singer-songwriter based out of Southwest Florida. Debuting in 2020 with the release of his first single, “I Was Him & He Was Me,” RC released his first EP “Sandbar Sideways” just six months later. Since then, Ralph recently celebrated the release of his fifth single, “Good at Bad Decisions.” Delving between country, pop and folk, RC continues to write and release heartfelt songs that don’t feel limited to a single genre yet instead offer a recipe of individuality. You can find him up and down the southwest coast of FL and anywhere on the east coast during the summertime.
Where are you based?
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been playing music since I was ten, but I’ve been a published songwriter/artist since 2020.
What genre would you consider your music to be?
Not an easy question, but I always lean towards country music.
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
Music has always been my biggest love and passion. Even when I tried to leave it behind I still came back full circle to writing songs.
What are your biggest musical influences?
Jason Isbell, Damian Rice, Ryan Adams, John Mayer to name a few.
Are you signed to a label or are you an independent artist?
What have been the biggest challenges in your music career?
Promoting new music for sure. You sink so much time, money and energy into writing, recording, producing and publishing music….but then the most important thing is getting people to hear it. Without a team or a massive budget it’s so difficult to break through algorithms and social media platforms just to be heard.
How many songs or albums have you released to date?
1 Ep, 5 singles.
Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
“Good at Bad Decisions” is certainly unlike anything we’ve put out thus far. It’s honestly far more “country” than I typically intend to sound. I kinda wrote the song by accident in about fifteen minutes and sat on it for a few years. When I found the right team and producer, it just felt right to take a swing at it in studio. I couldn’t be happier with the product we put out.
