Hello, time for my 3rd 50/90!
I am Kurtis Kanttila, 23 year old One Man Band musician from Northwestern Ontario. I have so far made 19 albums and over 200 songs since starting my musical journey July 2016. I record with a PS2 era USB mic for the instrumentation, including my beat up drums which I single mic on a chair, and a Snowball for my vocals. I just have fun and enjoy expressing what I want to through the amazing cosmic force of true Rock 'n Roll music. Sometimes I call what I do Goof Rock, but mostly I keep it simple. I make Rock 'n Roll music.
I got super into music via KISS in 2008, who will always be my favorite band, and learnt to play guitar from Ac/Dc in 2010. Two albums that changed the way I view music forever where Bob Dylan's Highway 61 and Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation. Albums that showed me I could make music as well. It started with writing goofy lyrics to finally getting the confidence to record when I started listening to The Misfits and The Pistols. I am a fan of Classic Rock, 80's Alt Rock (some 90's), and J-Pop which is around 50-60% of what I listen to. Artists like Seiko Oomori, Utada Hikaru, BiSH, Perfume, BAND-MAID, Yui etc. All of this shapes my music and my desire to make urgent, fast, melodic and fun Rock 'n Roll.
I didn't do much for 50/90, just completed a double album "Closer To Clarity". I indeed to start a covers EP with Rocktober.
