Freestyle Explosion Preview: a Conversation With Exposé's Ann Curless

One thing that's worth noting about Ann Curless, one of the members of Exposé's classic lineup, who are playing the TCC Arena tomorrow night as part of the Freestyle Explosion package concert: she seems like an exceptionally nice person. She apologized for missing our original interview time, made small-talk about the city, mentioning that she feels "spiritually connected to Tucson" (she came to town early to spend time with some childhood friends), and really cares about providing a good time for her group's fans. Ann's charm isn't probably a tipping point on whether you should go to the show tomorrow night, but it can't hurt right.

The group is re-emerging from a challenging time following their 2003 reunion, as they fought off their original managers in a battle for the group's name, so Curless feels a real sense of optimism about the state of Exposé. "We're captains of our own ship now," she said, "so it's more about figuring out where to go." The group has recently finished their second single as a reunited group, "Shine On", getting together remixes for its release. "It should be the beginning of more music from us, but we're geographically challenged, plus we don't want to put out sub-quality material."

Still, tomorrow night, Curless knows that people will come to hear the classic material. "You'll hear all the hits, as many as we can play in the time we have," she enthusiastically shared. "There's going to be a lot of great energy, people get to remember the good times they had, and we love to give that experience to our fans."
