Though not much older than the Homegrown Music Festival itself, Curren Effinger has already played around the Twin Ports for four-plus years. He describes his music as “shoe gaze,” but don’t let the soft, thoughtful lyrics fool you. His accompanying guitar sound is no drone; it rumbles with blues/rock/jazz riffs whether backed by a drummer or playing solo acoustic sets. Recently, he has added even more zeal to his repertoire by enrolling in the study of building hand-made string instruments.
