Though he may be a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer, Kuri chiefly describes himself as “an observer.” His keen insight and sonic curiosity thread together an intriguing framework of carefully constructed and composed alternative on 2019’s debut album No Village [June 7, 2019 via Nevado Music]. The foundation remains rooted in organic performances, classically infused orchestration, jazzy freeform spirit, cinematic ambition, and ultimately inspired observation.

Born and raised Scott Currie in the city of Abbotsford, British Columbia, he found himself constantly looking outward. The small Mennonite community he grew up in encouraged “a sense of questioning everything to figure out why we do what we do.” As the youngest of four brothers, mom bought him a drum set to jam with his guitarist siblings. Soon, he transitioned from behind-the-kit to an old piano in the house by the age of twelve.

“…dazzling as it is bewildering… a lyrically ingenious, musically mystifying cinematic folk masterpiece.” Writes Atwood Magazine on the first single from No Village, titled Sort Sol in a piece titled titled “THE BREATHTAKING GENIUS OF KURI’S AVANT-FOLK MASTERPIECE”.

“…celestial… evokes a radiant yet melancholy emotion” – Culture Collide

“…stunning… reminiscent of Sigur Rós and Thom Yorke” – Ones To Watch

“…gorgeous” – Wild Honey Pie
