“Unlike some sensitive singer-songwriter types who lean toward melodrama, Curt Perkins keeps his inner diva in check on his solo debut, Get Something Started. Besides, with a voice as lovely as his, a little emoting is called for. His knack for teetering along the edge of falsetto, whether to confess or seduce, at times recalls the greats of Motown, at others Jeff Buckley. Like his sometime employer Josh Rouse, Perkins clearly loves early-..70s soul..a couple of tracks on the album, particularly ..Another Love Story,.. sound like they could have been outtakes from Marvin Gaye's What's Going On. (Perkins even covers the Gaye classic ..Where Are We Going?..) Other songs run the gamut from the dreamy pop of the title track to the sultry Brazilian rhythms of ..California,.. which gives Al Green's ..Tired of Being Alone.. a run for the title of Song Most Likely to Get You Laid.

“For as long as he's lived here, Curt Perkins has been one of Nashville's most gifted and intuitive singers. On his first solo album, Get Something Started (which is also the first new release of his own material in nearly 10 years), Perkins reasserts that position with confidence and grace."
