Matthew Curry

As much as Matthew Curry is invested in summoning the spirit of the blues - a commitment that's in full display on the pair of smokin' hot albums he's released to date, 2011's barn-burning If I Don't Got You and 2013's hard-charging testifier Electric Religion - the 19-year-old guitar slinger and soulful singer from Bloomington, Illinois likes to take a much broader view of his style. "If somebody came up and asked me what I would call my music, I don't think I would say 'the blues,'" he admits. "And I don't think I would say 'rock and roll,' either. I would actually say, 'good music.' Blues is my first love, but I also love '60s rock like Cream, The Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix. I'm also into things like Southern rock, Chet Atkins, and Roy Clark. All of those artists are complete musicians. They write great songs, and they sing great too. They're just incredible."
