Curtis Waters was born Nepal and migrated to Germany, then relocated to Calgary when he was a child, eventually he and his family settled in North Carolina at age 17, where he lives with his parents and younger brother. Having never really fitted in, Curtis resorted to finding interests online and focusing on his creative endeavours as an escape from suburban life and his own mental health struggles.
His love of writing poetry and doing graphic design as a kid evolved into teaching himself how to make beats and produce music using YouTube tutorials. He first started earning money at 14 by selling his beats to artists he met on Soundcloud, until Curtis eventually realised he should work on his own musical projects. Inspired by Kanye, Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future, Curtis started writing, producing and engineering his own tracks and releasing them online, quickly catapulting himself to this most current and exciting place in his burgeoning musical career; a debut album on the horizon, millions of global streams and critical praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pigeons and Planes. As his star quickly ascends, and fans all over the world now, 20-year-old Curtis Waters continues his pursuit to shake the status quo, and is without a doubt one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists to break in 2020.
‘Pity Party’ is out worldwide on Friday, October 9.
