~Biography~ Throughout his life, singer/songwriter and acoustic entertainer Kurt Gott has been performing at various clubs, bars and restaurants. Originally from Massachusetts, he now lives in South Florida and is a full-time musician. He has often been compared to such singers as Don Henley and Paul McCartney by many of his fans and friends. Kurt's music is best described as a blend of rock, country and blues. Some of his biggest musical influences are the Beatles, Eagles, Tom Petty, Crosby Stills & Nash, Allman Brothers and Kenny Chesney.
Kurt began writing songs almost immediately after picking up the guitar at age 13 and just a few years later taught himself how to play the piano. He also can play drums, bass guitar and often plays blues harmonica at his current shows. After 27 years of working long hours in a well-established career in television operations, he decided to quit and start a new career in music at the age of 50. Now at age 51, he is about to release his second album and playing 4 to 5 shows a week.
Kurt is currently playing in the south Florida area in his acoustic duo/trio and also performs solo acoustic shows. His latest album, "Last Call", reflects the recent changes in his life of tossing away the business clothes, saying goodbye to the corporate world and trading it all in to pursue his passion. Now at this stage in his life, Kurt is doing what he loves to do, he's writing songs, recording new music and performing live shows weekly. He is grateful for the support he has gotten from all his fans over the years and is dedicated to bringing them great new music and giving great performances for many years to come.
