Curley Weaver was born in 1906 and raised near Porterdale, Georgia. He learned guitar around 1922 and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, a few years later. Most of his records were duets with other local blues recording artist, such as Atlanta based Blind Willie McTell and Fred McMullen of Macon, Georgia. McMullen began recording in 1933. He teamed up with Curley Weaver and Buddy Moss that same year in a recording trio known as The Georgia Browns.
