What happens when a girl who grew up singing Amy Grant songs into her hairbrush teams up with a guy who raised himself on New Order and wore only black for ten years? They make the dreamy, penetrating songs that have emerged for the upcoming album by LA-based dreampop artist Shannon Curtis, as helmed by her producer/mixer husband Jamie Hill (Jens Lekman, The Presets, Nada Surf).

Curtis says of the record:

“Our aim is to conjure the sound of the movies that play in your head, the words you wish you’d said in the moment, the feelings you just haven’t been able to shake.”

Early reviews describe the new material as “hypnotic,” “like being caught in a dream,” and “incredibly beautiful.” recently described Curtis’s sound as “downtempo dreampop.” The Los Angeles Times has described Curtis’s voice as being “like the love child of Fiona Apple and Norah Jones.” The Boulder Weekly puts it more vividly: “Curtis makes music that makes you want to dance in your underwear or cry in your beer.”

Curtis has released 3 EPs, one acoustic LP, and two 10-track maxi-singles over the last 5 years, all on the small independent label Saint Cloud Records. Curtis’s fan favorite “Boomerangs & Seesaws” was recently featured on ABC Family’s hit show ""Pretty Little Liars.""
