Portland-based award-winning vocalist/songwriter/harmonica icon, Curtis Salgado, has been perfecting his craft since he first began playing professionally in the late 1960s. He fronted his own group, the Nighthawks, inspired John Belushi to create the Blues Brothers, was co-star of the Robert Cray Band, and sang and toured with Roomful Of Blues.
Winner of the 2010 Blues Music Award for Soul Blues Artist Of The Year, Salgado effortlessly mixes blues, funk and R&B with a delivery that is raw and heartfelt. Salgado's Alligator debut highlights his deep soul vocals on four original tunes as well as songs by Johnny 'Guitar' Watson, Otis Redding, Bobby Womack and George Clinton.
'Triumphant, joyful blues-soaked R&B... one of the most soulful, honest singers ever.' - Blues Revue
