Origin: Wellington, New Zealand
Years Active: 2012- Present
Curlys Jewels are a hard rock band from Wellington, New Zealand. Their sound has been described as grungy yet powerfully emotive, pinned together with soaring vocals, dark guitar undertones and a punching rhythm section. The charismatic, colourful and instantly likeable front person, Jel Pollock, draws listeners in with her delightfully unique stage presence and sensational vocal range. Aaron Ludlow (guitar), Andy van der Heyden (bass) and Corey Bell (drums), provide the energetic foundations complimenting Jel, with all members lighting up the stage.
The band has released a number of records over the years charting on the Official NZ Top 40. Their most recent singles have been played on NZ mainstream and independent rock stations. Curlys Jewels are working on an album being produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) and mixed by Clint Murphy (Devilskin) and mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound Nashville USA.
Curlys Jewels have supported international acts including legends, Living Colour (USA). They have also supported several heavy weight New Zealand bands such as Villainy, Head Like a Hole, Devilskin, Alien Weaponry and toured NZ with The Feelers.
