Curtis Matheson bio:

Curtis Matheson is a Canadian musician based out of the province of Nova Scotia. A known guitar slinger throughout the province, Curtis’ style primarily revolves around the blues, rock, and country genres - often all mixed together. You may catch him loud and wild, and/or soft and delicate, injected with a tremendous amount of emotion during any of his performances. He is also a multi-instrumentalist, being no stranger to drums, bass, upright bass, harmonica, piano, and organ. Throughout his teenage years, he had been a student of the blues with the likes of Matt Minglewood and Joe Murphy taking him under their wings and showing him the tricks of the trade. He has also shared the stage with Monkeyjunk, John Campbelljohn, Tom Holland (guitarist for blues legend James Cotton), Garrett Mason, Terry Whalen, Christine Campbell, along with many, many more.

From 2009 to 2015, Curtis Matheson performed with the Cape Breton based group Highway 125, who were known for their tight sound and unusually young ages in the world of blues music. They released one album in 2013 titled “Payin’ Dues”, with a follow up EP titled “Off The Floor” a year later in 2014. The band said their goodbyes in August of 2015.

In October of 2014, Curtis released his debut album, “A Particular Blue”, where he performed most of the instrumentation. Amongst other guests on the album, it featured 3/5ths of the Matt Minglewood Band, including Matt himself. A follow up EP was released a year later in 2015 simply titled “2015”. Soon after, Curtis retreated from the music scene for a year and a half to focus on a music degree at Acadia University. In May 2018, Curtis Matheson graduated from Acadia University with a Bachelor of Music.​

Amongst a wave of changes taking place in Curtis’ personal life in 2016, he began performing live again and embarked on a comeback with a new band and new album. Starting in the late summer 2016, Curtis began performing regularly with Maritime blues icon Joe Murphy, filling in for Joe's longtime guitarist John Eyman when he is unavailable. In addition, Curtis is also part of "Joe Murphy & The Young'uns", a supergroup consisting of primarily young Nova Scotia blues talent that are being influenced and mentored by Joe.

After forming the Curtis Matheson Band in June 2016, Curtis geared up for his second album titled "Lust, Love & Broken Hearts", released in May 2017. In September 2017, the album was nominated for Music Nova Scotia's "Blues Recording of the Year".
