Ralph Curtis is a singer-songwriter currently based in Naples, Florida. His passion for music started as early as ten years old when he learned to play the cello before being fascinated by the guitar. His career has been on an upward trajectory as he now utilizes his musical gift to create memories and make an impact. Curtis wants his listeners to feel that energy he puts his record on – this is Ralph to the core! While rooted in the country style, Ralph eclectically blends pop sounds with a distinctive form of lyrical expression. RC sometimes fuses laid-back and other times bouncy melodies with adroitly crafted hooks that will make any music lover feel influenced as they sing along.
His rise to where he is currently standing is undoubtedly a testament to his hard work and dedication to making great, lasting music as he curves his own path and leaves his indelible mark on the country music scene – one song at a time. “Man You Want Me To Be” is a 5-minute emotional and affectionate piece that blends inspired songwriting with a heartfelt vocal presentation and a very touching hook at its heart.
“Man You Want Me To Be” takes a very soothing and pleasant laid-back acoustic groove right from that charming guitar intro that is followed by Ralph’s raw and cowboy-flavored vocals that are so perfect to this style of music. Building on the quintessential storytelling associated with the country genre, RC delivers an unforgettable performance of that first chorus – “I can’t promise you the world, but I can give you everything in between / I can’t pull the moon and the stars, but I can give you something – a shoulder to cry on, a rock you can lean on, a bed where you can sleep / No I can’t offer much, but I can be the man you want me to be…” which is soon followed by a timely addition of the uptight bass, adding that delightful depth and sonic warmth.
This is a deeply resonant tune that fits every situation in a man’s life – from a man to his lady, or a man to his mother, father, sister, or son/daughter. It somehow makes you think of whether you actually meet the threshold to be there for the people in your life who care for you most.
A very passionate vocal performance and soothing melodies that place you exactly where they want you to; what more could you ask for?
