Curtis Stigers brings Contemporary Jazz to Blackburn

Tickets go on sale at 10am tomorrow (Tuesday 28 July 2020) for Curtis Stigers at King George’s Hall.

Award-winning singer, songwriter, and saxophonist, Curtis Stigers is bringing his tour to Blackburn’s King George’s Hall on Monday 5th July 2021.

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.

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.

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.
