Curtice Belvidere was born in Alberta, on the arid steppes on the leeward side of the Canadian Rockies. Until he turned 16, the only radio station within reach played polkas and C & W between reports on hog and cattle prices. On clear nights, WCCO could occasionally be pulled in. Seeing how he loved this sophisticated urban music, his parents bought him a Frank Sinatra record for his 14th birthday. He played it over and over and learned to emulate the Sinatra sound, which explains why he has so much trouble finding the proper pitch.
At 16, Curtice left home and began wandering the world, absorbing musical influences far and wide – though apparently without taste or discernment. Frustrated at his inability to find stylish clothes that fit, he learned to sew his own and has made his living as a tailor specializing in odd sizes for the past 20 years.
