Hi everyone,

My name is Kenny Curcio. I am a singer songwriter from Medford, NJ who has a dream of spreading my music as far as it can go, and using my music as a way to motivate, inspire, and help people. I want to send a positive message to all who listen to my music.

I started playing guitar at the age of 12, given to me by my father who passed away 3 months later. I started writing my own music in college. Music has always been apart of who I am, and every experience and emotion has been played through these 6 strings. It has helped me in many ways, so I decided to take a leap of faith to pursue my passion of songwriting and performing with the goal of helping as many people along the way as possible. 

That is how my journey led to partnering with Operation Yellow Ribbon. Yellow Ribbon is a local nonprofit that ships care packages and supplies to those in harms way, along with organizing welcome home events for US Troops.

I started writing American Soldier in the summer of 2018. It is a song to honor our veterans and those that still serve, while promoting individual strength in the face of adversity. I am hopeful it will be a song all can relate to. Whether dealing with a personal challenge, finding strength to overcome adversity, or helping someone needing support. American Soldier is a song of unity, freedom, and overcoming challenges while being proud to be an American.

With my Kickstarter program, I have created different reward levels. Each level I will donate a portion of the proceeds to Yellow Ribbon. Not only will you be helping my journey to spread a positive message, but you can feel good knowing a portion of your contribution will be supporting US Troops in harms way. Each care package sent oversea's will receive various items. In addition to the supplies being sent, each donation I receive I will send a digital download of American Soldier, which will help motivate and inspire the troops to keep moving forward. Each contribution makes a difference. Each care package make a difference! American Soldier is a message for the troops to know we have their back, and will continue to support them no matter what!
