Biography

Paul Curreri (born January 28, 1976, in Seattle, Washington) is an American musician and songwriter who performs mainly in the folk and blues music styles. He married songwriter- guitarist Devon Sproule in May 2005. They often appear and tour together. His brother Matt Curreri is also a musician, currently performing with Mananaland.

Curreri is renowned for his inspired songs, bright voice, and talented finger-style playing. Described by WTJU’s Aer Stephen as “A ruffled gypsy gutter cowboy, a true life adventurer, a bright new voice”, Paul Curreri has also been compared to Martin Sexton for his reputation for inspired live performances (and more elusive success in the studio).

Raised in Richmond, Virginia, Paul now makes his home in Charlottesville with songwriter/guitarist Devon Sproule; the two were married in May of 2005. Though he grew up playing music, he ended up enrolling at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) to pursue painting and film. While his experiences at art school helped develop his ability to observe and record the visual world, his true passion again rose to the surface. By the time Paul graduated from RISD, he’d composed over 200 songs on guitar and piano. Turning down a job at MTV, he set to work carving out a life as a musician.

Following a spot at New York’s Knitting Factory in 2001, Curreri received several tour invites from Kelly Joe Phelps. Over the next four years, the two would play over 100 concerts together.
