Bio

Histo is an rock band from Madison, WI founded by many-instrumentalist Donald Ephraim Curtis. Histo’s music is melody first. Songs that make you to hum along after the music is gone. Capturing the magic of bands like Built to Spill and Dinosaur Jr., at least that’s what people have said after their live show.

The band was formalized after Don survived a lung infection that nearly killed him, originating from the old building where he was recording demos. The experience instilled an sense of urgency to put together his own group.

In truth, Histo is the advocacy that we all hang on to our passions and appreciate not only music and art, but the everyday things that we do. This is reflected in the lyrics that serve as an instrument for the notes that Histo produces.
