Curtis Stigers

Curtis Stigers is at the forefront of a new generation of jazz singers. With one of the most distinctive voices in music, Stigers pushes the boundaries of conventional jazz performers and expands the jazz repertory, creating modern jazz standards. Throughout his career, singer/songwriter/saxophonist Stigers has been celebrated for a surprisingly wide variety of impressive accomplishments--from his early pop chart success with several self-penned, top-ten singles and hit albums and an appearance on the soundtrack for “The Bodyguard” (one of the biggest selling albums of all time), to Downbeat Magazine naming him as one of the jazz genre's “Rising Male Stars” and the London Times selecting his recording, You Inspire Me, as the number one jazz album of 2003. He's toured the world in concert with such renowned pop artists as Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, and Prince, while also sharing the bill with such jazz greats as George Benson, Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis, Nancy Wilson, Herbie Hancock, Randy and Michael Brecker and Toots Thielmans. Stigers has performed his hits on “The Tonight Show” and “The Late Show with David Letterman” in the US, and has been called “one of the best male jazz singers of his generation” by JazzTimes. He's appeared on albums by Al Green, Jules Shear, Suzzy Roche, and Julia Fordham, as well as his early mentor, jazz piano legend Gene Harris. His refusal to stand still, and his consistent desire to grow and evolve musically, has earned him admiration and recognition--and kept the critics guessing.
