DAVID CURTIS | KEYBOARDS, VOCALS

 

As the founding member of ESCAPE, Dave has been a Journey fan most all of his life. Dave grew up in Chicago, where he began studying piano at the American Conservatory of Music when he was 7 years old.

 

He had a great teacher, who allowed Dave to bring in any sheet music he wished to learn, as long as he was doing his classical studies. So there he was, learning Led Zeppelin and Chopin.

 

Dave loves most styles of music but has always been drawn to the fun of 80's pop rock. He can also be found jamming boogie woogie.

 

Dave's influences include Debussy, Chopin, George Duke, Jerry Lee Lewis, and of course Gregg Rolie and Jonathan Cain.

 

Dave is also a licensed pilot, and enjoys taking to the skies.  In his spare time Dave enjoys working on his model trains, and custom painting stage pianos and keyboards.
