With a little help, The Currys head to studio

“(Songwriting) is a lot of fun,” Jimmy said of songwriting. “It is very rewarding and enjoyable to do. It kind of comes in flashes. Some take a long time to complete, others might come in an hour.

“Singer/songwriters, that whole genre had a big influence on us. We listened to a lot of Bob Dylan and Neil Young growing up because that is who our parents (Drs. Betty and Tom Curry) listened to. There are contemporary groups that play the same kind of music.”

Influences that can be heard in The Currys music include current popular groups such as Mumford & Sons and the Dropkick Murphys.

Jimmy and Galen eventually “reeled in” Tommy to make a go of music full-time. They will be based out of Charlottesville after their New York City gig and hope they find the monetary support to be in the studio in September.

“For now we are satisfied with making music a full-time thing,” Jimmy Curry said. “It’s not really an end game for anybody who understands how things work.

“We just hope to have some fun, get our music out and maybe not be too poor while we are doing it.”
