(New York, NY) November 1st, 2019: NJ-based singer-songwriter Kenny Curcio officially releases his new single “Hometown Heart”. Written and produced by Curcio at 0x1 Studios in Cherry Hill, NJ, “Hometown Heart” is an uplifting blend of Americana and rock, which has become his signature sound. Lyrically, Curcio wrote an anthem to express his appreciation for where he started and celebrate how the past has shaped him.
Reflecting on what inspired him to write “Hometown Heart”, Kenny Curcio says, “I wanted to tell the story of where things started for me, which others can apply to their own life experiences. It’s all about remembering and appreciating the good times, and accepting life’s challenges as learning experiences; because they both can serve to help each of us grow into becoming the person we are meant to be.”
From learning on the family organ to receiving his first guitar at 12, Kenny Curcio has always had a passion for music. He began embracing songwriting in high school, later forming the band Whiskey Train in college, which released two studio albums, Keep On Walking and Open Up Your Mind. Curcio then moved on to solo work releasing debut album More to Do in 2012.
During this time, Kenny Curcio had the opportunity to open for national acts Gary Allen at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ, and Corey Smith at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA. He has performed live for Philly’s 93.3 WMMR for Preston and Steve’s ‘Campout For Hunger’ to raise money for the homeless. He has become a staple live performer being featured at Trocadero and TLA in Philadelphia as well as numerous venues in NYC.
Kenny Curcio’s most recent single, “American Soldier”, was released Memorial Day Weekend, May 24th, 2019. The single was a testament to his abilities as a musician to connect with his audience.
