The Sound of Curtis Lavon
Curtis Lavon Burton (born Sept. 5, 1989), known as Curtis Lavon, is an American poet from Columbia, SC. Lavon embarked on his creative journey as an artist shortly after 2011 when he suffered a series of heart attacks in Greenville, SC. He stated, "While I was in the hospital, I heard music yet the room was either quiet or full of visitor chatter. And it was like I knew what I needed to do."
It would not be until April 2016, until Lavon would release his premier poetic masterpiece entitled "Lipservice." Lavon culminated himself in the arts, after partnering with South Carolina fashion designer Rashaud Cleveland releasing Underground Word Club (UWC) clothing line late 2016 making it unique as it is "Created for artists, by artists, with the artist in mind.” Lavon's second poetic project entitled "Adlibs" (2017) hit the Upstate South Carolina circuit in a frenzy after debuting his spoken word poetry at Coffee Underground's open mic. His follow up mixtape entitled “Romans” was released Spring 2018 on all major music platforms. In anticipation of releasing his 1st EP entitled “Monogamy” in collaboration with songstress and fiancé Shakira Mitchell, he released their 1st single “Good Thing” incarnating love at its most intimate moments within relationships. Lavon is most noted for his storytelling ability and stage presence amongst southern poets. His music's melodic tones enable him to speak on love, faith, and redemption as a man of God in America.

Have a Look
2 Corinthians 12: 9
"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Every man must come to a place within himself, where he decides to love in spite of. Valuing others as much as he knows God has placed worth on his own life. Above all else..... LOVE
Underground Word Club Presents: "Too Late" Feat. LaBrittney Vernon
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." ... He who loves his wife loves himself."
Having someone to wake up to is worth more than having everyone to sleep with. Value yourself, and love will reciprocate in ways you cannot imagine.

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God."
Becoming a doer of the word requires a renewal of the mind that can only be identified in spirit.
