Curtis & Luckey blend country and rock ‘n’ roll in their unique style of songwriting. In 2011, C & L played over 200 shows across the United States, opening for superstars like The Band Perry, Pat Green, Easton Corbin and Joe Nichols.
Josh Sallee is a rising star in the hip-hop industry. The young Oklahoman is hard at work on his newest project, “Probable Flaws.” The opening artist is SWOSU’s own Delvin Sirleaf. The 21-year-old singer hails from Oklahoma City. This past year of 2011 was a busy one for Sirleaf as he won a contest with MTV & Pacsun to attend the MTV VMAs in Los Angeles and was a finalist for B.E.T.’s “Blaze the Stage.”
