An Evening with Curtis Stigers
€38 + €1 booking fee
Curtis Stigers burst onto the recording scene in 1991 with his eponymous debut album, which sold 1.5 million copies and spawned several self-penned, pop/soul-flavoured hit singles, including “You’re All That Matters To Me,” “Never Saw A Miracle” and the worldwide top-ten hit, “I Wonder Why.”
The NYC-based musician then toured the world in support of the album, opening shows for the likes of Elton John, Prince, Eric Clapton, James Brown, Joe Cocker, Rod Stewart and Bonnie Raitt, and made multiple appearances on the TV show circuit, including The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Arsenio and The Today Show.
Heady times for a kid raised in Idaho who grew up listening to records by artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Elvis Costello, The Stranglers, Pretenders, Squeeze, XTC, Ray Charles, Joe Williams, Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Sarah Vaughn and Miles Davis.
Stigers co-wrote and sang the theme song to the TV series Sons of Anarchy, for which he was also nominated for an Emmy Award.
“Inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy.”
—New York Times
“I cannot think of another vocalist who creates such an exuberant combination of bebop artistry and raw emotion.”
“When Curtis Stigers came on stage... it felt as if someone had upped the wattage in the bulbs.”
—Wall Street Journal
