About Curtis Stigers
“Rock ‘n’ roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it’s remarkable the two don’t fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers.” – The New York Times
Discovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, Curtis Stigers 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 cover of Nick Lowe’s “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding” for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart — as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. — put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.
