A musician from an early age, Tom Curren grew up playing drums, bass, guitar and ukulele, and
quickly began writing and composing his own songs. But Curren began building his “surfing
legend” status on the perfect point breaks near his hometown of Santa Barbara, California. Son
of the famous big-wave surfer and board shaper Pat Curren, the young Curren developed a surfing style so smooth, powerful and graceful that it changed the sport and was emulated the
world over. He started winning international surfing competitions in his teens, but it was his
ethereal wave mastery, combined with his unassuming nature, that captured the surfing world’s
imagination. A three-time world champion by the age of 26, Curren made the surprising decision
to retreat from the glare of competitive surfing to embrace his musical roots.
Still one of the most well known, beloved and legendary of professional surfers, Curren has a
mystique that was enhanced by his musical aspirations and abilities. During his years on
competitive surf circuit, Curren always found opportunities to create and perform music,
developing bands with names such as Skipping Urchins and Plankten. His sound reveals
musical influences ranging from jazz to African music to acoustic guitar melodies, reflections of
a world-traveling competitor. His diverse repertoire made such an impression on Jackson
Browne that he asked Curren to join his touring band last year.
The four-song EP was produced by the highly regarded John Alagia, who regularly works with
such artists as Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. Alagia heard Curren’s music last
summer when Curren was touring, was captivated by its unique sound. Alagia brought in a
number of world-class musicians to play on the project, including another legendary figure: Jim
Keltner, famed drummer to Eric Clapton and John Lennon.
Curren has a holistic approach to the songwriting challenge: ““I try to write songs that I would
want to listen to, incorporating different musical styles. It’s a challenge to write songs that are
accessible and still make them distinctive,” he said. “I want to make music that has a positive
impact. I try to be positive, and realistic about what I’m writing about."
The surfing world has long been aware of Tom Curren’s special musical talent, and is eagerly
awaiting the release of the album. "Curren's reputation as one of the world's greatest surfers in
history is supported by his accomplishments as a competitor,” said Matt Warshaw in ' Surf
Riders'. “But most surfers would define Curren as an artist first, then as a world champion." With
the release of “Summerland Road”, the rest of the music world will learn what surfers already
