Stereo Embers The Podcast: Curtis Stigers
Written by BOMBSHELL RADIO on 03/09/2022
Raised in Idaho and California, Curtis Stigers is likely comfortable in the snow and the sun–and musically, he’s equally as versatile. Trained in clarinet and saxophone, Stigers loved blues and punk rock as a kid, but found himself gravitating to jazz clubs as he came of age. He graduated from high school and high-tailed it to NY to pursue his rock and roll dream, but it was jazz that made that dream come true. His debut album went multi platinum, he appeared on the rather massive Bodyguard soundtrack and after putting out a few jazz records, he knocked out Let’s Go Out Tonight, which covered tracks by everyone from Steve Earle to Richard Thompson. Over the course of his career, Stigers has worked with Elton John, Prince, Joe Cocker and Julia Fordham. He’s put out nearly fifteen solo albums, including his brand new one, This Life, he’s had top ten hits on the Billboard charts and played shows all over the world. This Life revisits Stigers’ hits over the years and his reinterpretations are refreshing and compelling. Stigers plays with finesse and soul and he’s not only unreasonably talented, he’s a blast to talk to.
