FLORENCE – On Thursday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m., Francis Marion University’s Performing Arts Center brings Boston-based singer-songwriter Catie Curtis to the stage of its intimate Black Box Theatre.
Curtis is a veteran artist with a 15-year career and has recorded 10 critically acclaimed solo albums and has had songs featured in numerous TV shows including Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, Grey’s Anatomy and Alias, as well as in films such as 500 Miles to Graceland and A Slipping Down Life. In the fall of 2008 Curtis released the critically acclaimed Sweet Life (her ninth recording), an album dedicated to Lynne Ramsdell, the neighbor who gave 15-year old Curtis her first guitar and traced out the first steps of Curtis’ life path.
Throughout the fall of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 Curtis toured Sweet Life, and in January 2009 performed at the Human Rights Campaign’s official Obama inaugural ball beside LGBT icons Melissa Etheridge and Rufus Wainwright. Her new CD, "Stretch Limousine on Fire," was released last August. The opening act of the show will be Carsie Blanton.
