Brian Culbertson – Featured Artist

Brian Culbertson – Featured Artist

Brian Culbertson (born January 12, 1973) is a smooth jazz musician and instrumentalist from Decatur, Illinois, United States. Son of jazz band director and trumpeter Jim Culbertson, Brian’s instruments include the keyboard and trombone.

Heavily influenced by funk, much of Culbertson’s material is funk-based instrumental, but began calling upon vocalists such as Trey Lorenz, Marc Nelson and Kenny Lattimore to add to his latter pieces.

Culbertson has released eight albums so far. The first three were on the Blue Moon label: “Long Night Out” 1994, “Modern Life” 1995, and “After Hours” 1996. After moving to the Atlantic Records, three more albums followed: “Secrets” 1997, “Somethin’ Bout Love” 1999, and the critically acclaimed “Nice & Slow” 2001. “Come on Up” 2003 was released on Warner Jazz, and Culbertson then moved to GRP Records for his project, “It’s On Tonight” 2005 which debuted at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s contemporary-jazz charts.

Brian Culbertson also works with many other musicians in the smooth jazz arena, often as a composer and arranger. Culbertson is currently credited with working with Dave Koz, Peter White, Richard Elliot, Jeff Lorber, Michael Lington and legendary A&M Records composer and producer, Herb Alpert to name but a few. He is married to Michelle Culbertson.

Brian has regularly appeared live on many radio stations including KTWV 94.7 The Wave in California and the UK’s Solar radio with Michael J. Parlett.
