NEW YORK (January 30, 2013)—After the success of his debut EP, Tom Curren announced today he will release his full length album, In Plain View, on April 2, 2013 through Wolfbomb Productions. Recorded at Village Studios and produced by John Alagia, Curren’s natural affinity for diverse sound shines through in each of the album’s tracks. Combining blues, folk and rock tunes, Curren’s style is truly all his own.

“I try to write songs that I would want to listen to, incorporating different styles and genres. I hope to write something that has a foundation in some recognizable and familiar way, but still make something distinctive,” Curren said. “And I hope my music comes across as positive, and that it has a positive impact. I try to be positive, and realistic, about what I am writing about, at the same time.”

After playing shows all over the West Coast as well as NYC and Hawaii, Curren plans to hit the road again. Beginning in April, he will travel the West Coast once more for headlining dates as well as join Ben Howard for a string of dates. See below for the full list of stops.

A musician from an early age, Tom Curren grew up playing drums, bass, guitar and ukulele, and quickly began writing and composing his own songs. In fact, young Curren would get up early every morning to practice drums and go surfing before school. Curren began building his “surfing legend” status on the perfect point breaks near his hometown of Santa Barbara, California. Son of the famous big-wave surfer and board shaper Pat Curren, the young Curren developed a surfing style so smooth, powerful and graceful that it changed the sport and was emulated the world over. He started winning international surfing competitions in his teens, but it was his graceful wave mastery, combined with his unassuming nature, that captured the surfing world’s imagination. A three-time world champion by the age of 26, Curren made the surprising decision to retreat from the glare of competitive surfing to embrace his musical roots.

The surfing world has long been aware of Tom Curren’s special musical talent, and is eagerly awaiting the release of the album. “Curren’s reputation as one of the world’s greatest surfers in history is supported by his accomplishments as a competitor,” said Matt Warshaw in ‘ Surf Riders’. “But most surfers would define Curren as an artist first, then as a world champion.” With the release of “Summerland Road”, the rest of the music world will learn what surfers already know.
