All this week, KUTX highlights the “Ones To Watch”–seven must-see artists at SXSW 2015.

Austin’s Curtis McMurtry is the next in line of great McMurtry writers. His grandfather is author Larry McMurtry, and his father is local singer-songwriter James McMurtry. Curtis says he’s learned a lot about hard work from both, but his mother actually had the biggest influence on his music. Despite his Texas roots, Curtis studied chamber music in New York before returning home. Will Sexton helped produce Curtis’ debut album, Respectable Enemy. Listen to Curtis McMurtry’s profile and find his SXSW shows below.
