Better Late Than Forever is I Am Curbie’s first full-length release of original music. The thirteen track album covers topics of reflection, love and wild nights with friends. While the only instrumentation is Curbie’s acoustic guitar, with occasional percussion, the songs still remain uptempo and fun to sing along with. I Am Curbie’s impressive list of cover songs (which you can see on his website) clearly taught him a lot about songwriting and made him a great guitarist.
According to I Am Curbie, “I Am Curbie is a singer-songwriter/loop artist hailing from the Jersey Shore. After 5 long years of writing and perfecting his songs Better Late Than Forever was born and will be released on 3-3-18. A 6 date Mid Atlantic Tour will follow shortly after in support of this record."
Although you might catch yourself singing and humming along to Curbie's memorable melodies long after they have reached their end, the lyrics behind them are far from fun and games. His unique ability to take a serious, real-life situation and flip, flop, mix, mold, and weave happiness into a song will leave you asking for more.
While heavily rooted in classic rock, alternative, and reggae, the pop sensibilities really shine through.
Better Late Than Forever is the perfect title for an album that took five years of writing. The amount of time and effort I Am Curbie put into these songs is admirable and proves his dedication to his work. Make sure you catch I Am Curbie on his mid-Atlantic tour and like his page on Facebook for updates on his career and to book him at your next party or wedding!
