This album is brought to us by the artist himself: Curt Yagi! We really enjoyed Need Love, now show this independent artist out of Oakland, California some love.
Put on your swim trunks, grab your towel, and head to the beach. Once there, start streaming Curt Yagi & The People Standing Behind Me’s “Need Love” and don’t forget to turn the speakers up! This gem of an album blends acoustic rock, reggae, and ska into a smooth island-vibe concoction that will transport you to a tropical getaway. Don’t forget to bring the fruity mixed drinks.
Bonus Content: Ben Fong-Torres, former Senior Editor, Rolling Stone had this to say, "People keep comparing him to other artists, but I think he just sounds like Curt Yagi, and that is plenty good enough. This is one excellent singer and songwriter."
