Dave Curtis Shutters Direct Current
July 23, 2014 at 11:29 AM (PT)
DAVE CURTIS has decided to shut down his music-discovery website DIRECT CURRENT. This also means he is ending his weekly DIRECT CURRENT eBlast, which ALL ACCESS has helped to distribute for the past few years.
As CURTIS stated on his site, “It's with feelings of sadness, regret and a strange sense of relief that I share the news that I've decided to put the "closed" sign on DIRECT CURRENT. It's been a long, wonderful and occasionally bumpy ride over all these years. My love of discovering new artists and new music is still as strong as ever. But the reality of what it takes to keep the site running (not to mention finding any semblance of financial reward) has become an all-consuming effort of time and energy.”
