Curtis Stigers

About

For the award-winning singer, songwriter, and saxophonist, Curtis Stigers, the story keeps getting better. His string of hit singles, millions of albums sold, and a 28-year recording career aside, Stigers' commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook, has become unparalleled in modern music. Along the way, this musician has redefined the constitution of contemporary jazz singing.
Stigers' success as a songwriter has included co-writing with the likes of legends like Carole King and Barry Mann, and his songwriting talent also led to an Emmy nomination for co-writing and singing the theme song to the wildly successful TV series Sons Of Anarchy.
It is his rich singing voice, however—singular, balletic, and at turns both mournful and playful—that has landed him on records with the likes of Al Green, Shawn Colvin and Jackson Browne, in studios with venerated producers like Larry Klein, Danny Kortchmar, and Glen Ballard, and on stages and concert bills with a plethora of legends, including pop and rock greats Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Prince, Rod Stewart and The Allman Brothers, and jazz giants Nancy Wilson, Al Jarreau, Gerry Mulligan, Randy and Michael Brecker, Chuck Mangione, Toots Thielmans, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Diana Krall, John Scofield, Larry Goldings and many more.
After being mentored in his early years by legendary jazz pianist Gene Harris, and by the revered jazz singer Mark Murphy, Stigers' unique talent was recognized by music business impresario Clive Davis, who signed Stigers to a record deal after hearing him in a New York restaurant. A debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like "I Wonder Why," "You're All That Matters to Me," and "Never Saw a Miracle." A year later, Stigers contributed a cover version of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding" to The Bodyguard soundtrack, which has sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Today Show and countless international TV shows, put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. Stigers also made cameo appearances in the movie comedies Ted and Ted 2, written and directed by his friend, Seth MacFarlane.
Born in Hollywood, raised in Idaho and transplanted to Manhattan, he now resides, between concert appearances, back in Boise, where he's proud to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for the Interfaith Sanctuary Homeless Shelter.



Curtis Stigers returns with a brand new album, GENTLEMAN (April, 2020), co-produced by Stigers and longtime collaborator, pianist/organist/composer Larry Goldings, featuring jazz arrangements of modern standards by Nick Lowe, Tom T. Hall, John Fullbright and David Poe, plus four new original songs.
