Nick Curran kicked off his extremely successful career
at age nineteen when he hit the road to tour with Ronnie
Dawson. After that jumping off point, his career flew sky
high touring and recording with rockabilly artist Kim Lenz.
Curran then went on to record his debut solo album, Fixin’
Your Head. Soon after he expanded to create band Nick Curran
& The Nitelifes. Curran also played with The Thunderbirds
for three years, formed punk band Deguello, and was featured
on cult TV series True Blood. Most recently Curran formed
rock n’ roll band The Lowlifes, and performed with
punk rock band The Flash Boys.
None would disagree that Nick Curran has devoted his life
wholeheartedly to music making, and as the ultimate music
loving city, we rally around him at this time to support
him in his struggle with cancer. In 2010 Curran was diagnosed
with mouth cancer, only months later to be declared cancer
free. Unfortunately, recently it was announced that his
cancer has returned and he is undergoing treatment. While
this news is heavy on the heart, the fight has just begun
and many of Nick Curran’s friends are banding together
to support him and hold a benefit in his honor.
