As the main songwriter in Del Amitri (who formed in Glasgow in 1983), Currie wrote many of their biggest hits including Roll To Me, Always The Last To Know, and Nothing Ever Happens. During their distinguished career Del Amitri released four Top 10 albums, including Waking Hours (1989), which sold over a million copies in the UK alone. After a decade long hiatus, Del Amitri reunited for The A to Z Of Us Tour in 2014, selling out venues including Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena and Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Currie lives and breathes in Glasgow, collects beer mats and makes his own cushions.
