The Beautiful Lowdown

Curtis Salgado

The Beautiful Lowdown


Salgado’s most fearless and adventurous release to date finds him writing or co-writing all but one song, co-producing and contributing to horn and background vocal parts. With Curtis’ powerful, passionate vocals leading the way on everything from soulful Van Morrison-esque rock to slippery funk, from gritty harp-stoked blues to devastating ballads, the results are nothing short of spectacular.  "Inspired, powerful R&B showcases Salgado’s exceptional range and muscular, soulful vocals" –Billboard
