Murray Burns’ enthusiasm is only part of the growing reaction. Recording executive Chris Murphy (who discovered and managed INXS) went out of his way to mentor Kurtis after seeing him perform in Bondi.

 

When the band played at the Melbourne Crown Casino recently, the live audience went wild and Michael Gudinski, the legendary Australian music mogul and the man responsible for taking many Australian acts to international stardom was knocked out by Kurtis. He said on national television “It’s great to see a new, original band with an original sound. That’s what rock and roll is all about – leaders, not followers”. Also at the gig, Irene Hulme, Music Director, MMM, loved Kurtis - “the band has a unique sound that’s going to catch a growing audience of new fans” she said. Of Kurtis himself, she said “this guy can sing, I’m very impressed with Kurtis”.

With a tight and funky sound, great stage presence, a new album and committed management offered from industry heavyweight, Robert Raymond (Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs; Dragon; Split Enz), Kurtis’ time may have arrived, but it hasn’t happened overnight. Nor has Kurtis’ journey been exactly easy
