Product Notes

Curl has been one of my favorite local (Victoria, BC) bands since I first saw them perform about three years ago. They are funny, sharp, and lots of fun. I don't think of them as an 'all girl band' or any kind of novelty act, just a band that plays great music to go dancing to ... bassist Susan Johnson and drummer Christa Rossner lock together in the groove ... Dee Cooper's keyboard playing and her arrangements bring out the best in her band mates... vocalist Helen Davies has the pipes to sing anything from Bessie Smith to Axl Rose, but she makes her powerful voice serve the song, not the singer's ego ... I would put some of these tracks in heavy rotation if I were a radio deejay. - David Vest, Southern-bred boogie-woogie piano player and blues shouter A visit to Butchart Gardens is a great way to beat the heat - it's always cooler by the sea. Another reason to visit is a rockin' blues combo, Curl, playing the gardens on Friday night. This worthwhile all-female band is led by Victoria's Helen Davies, a grainy voiced singer influenced by Etta James and Bonnie Raitt. - Adrian Chamberlain, Arts Writer, Victoria Times Colonist Curl dishes up powerhouse vocals, steady grooves and classic blues a la Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin. Curl is composed of Helen Davies on vocals and guitar; Dee Cooper on keyboards; Susan Johnson on bass guitar; and Christa Rossner on drums. HELEN DAVIES - A singer for more than 20 years, Helen is known for Janis Joplin style vocals and an energetic stage presence. She is a former member of classic rock band Rukus, pop band The Voodoo Slaves, eight-piece R&B band, Davy's Gang and blues-rock quartet Canadian Bandwagon.She has studied guitar with accomplished Canadian blues guitarists Dave Gogo and Paul Deslauriers. DEE COOPER - A keyboardist and vocalist with a sophisticated jazz touch, Dee started playing with rock bands in her native Ontario, then formed the jazz fusion group Spaces, which went on to perform original music at Ontario festivals and clubs and on local radio broadcasts. After moving west in 1992, she played for cover band Loose Change and blues band AMP'D. SUSAN JOHNSON - With a flawless sense of rhythm, Susan provides a solid foundation for Curl. A long-time student of the blues, Susan was formerly in pop band, The Voodoo Slaves. Susan has studied bass with teachers as diverse as Russell Jackson (former bassist for B.B. King) and Gary Kendall of the Downchild Blues Band. CHRISTA ROSSNER - A solid blues shuffler with an sophisticated sense of timing, Christa got her start on hand drums before switching to a kit and becoming a student of the blues. Christa has studied with Bill Hicks (drums, David Gogo), Donald Johnson (drums), Damian Graham (drums, the Sutcliffes).
