Raleigh, N.C.-based Thirsty Curses is a rock ‘n roll outfit formed in late 2016 by singer-songwriter Wilson Getchell.
Thirsty Curses is currently comprised of Wilson Getchell (vocals, guitar, piano) Kelley Otwell (lead guitar), Phillip Harrington (drums), and Clay Herring (bass). Thirsty Curses' sound covers a fast array of rock 'n roll sub-genres including punk, folk, country, prog rock, 90s alternative, and pop.

In June 2019, Thirsty Curses signed with Spectra Music Group and is currently working on its label debut.
"Thirsty Curses make rock’n’roll, with a boisterous beer-swilling edge to it. Many of these songs are about living it up while things fall apart at the seams, or at least trying to find some glory in chaos and meaninglessness." -John Adamian of YES! Weekly

"The band has an eclectic sound that touches on everything from punk rock to folk. They sound like a cross between the Avett Brothers and Rise Against. On their new album that diverse sound is delightfully all over the place." -Alternative Addiction

"As schizophrenic as their genre influences seems to be, the one common denominator is that I dig every single track I’m hearing." -Dying Scene

"Cheeky, bouncy indie pop that doesn’t take itself so goddamn seriously, but seriously gets in your head all the same." -Radio Free Lightening
