Brady Brock with New York-based GoldVE Entertainment, which co-manages the band, says Curtis died Sunday evening of lymphoblastic lymphoma at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Curtis was diagnosed just under a year ago.
An Oklahoma native, Curtis lived in Dallas, where he played in bands including Tripping Daisy and Secret Machines. Brock says Secret Machines relocated to New York before Curtis went on to form School of Seven Bells with Alejandra de la Deheza.
Brock said Tuesday that Curtis gathered acclaim not just as a guitarist but also as an innovative composer and musician.
Funeral services had not been arranged as of Tuesday.
