“My mom is a Johnny Cash fan, has been since she was a teenager. So I can honestly say I have been listening to his records since before I was born. Outside the womb, I remember Ring of Fire blasting out the 8-track player of her 1969 Thunderbird as she was trying to talk her way out of another speeding ticket. Listening to old Johnny Cash records led me to discover the rockabilly songs recorded at Sun Studios by Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and Jerry Lee Lewis. My musical education continued to other artists on other labels such as Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran.

Besides all the great music from the 1950s and 1960s, I also really dig the story-telling styles of Roger Miller and Shel Silverstein and the well-crafted lyrics of Bob Dylan and Kris Kristofferson. Maybe some of those influences find their way into my music as well?” - Justin Curtis
