Bio

Brian Culbertson began his musical journey at the age of 8 on piano, adding drums at 9, trombone at 10 then bass at 12. He grew up in Decatur, IL, loving genre-crossing jazz-pop artists such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower of Power, The Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets and Chick Corea. So naturally gifted was Brian, his 7th grade piano recital consisted of all original tunes. Brian flourished school bands throughout high school and moved to Chicago to continue his musical studies at DePaul University. In 1994, at age 20, Brian self-produced his debut album, Long Night Out. After that release, he then went on to compose jingles for clients such as United Airlines, Gatorade, Sears, Coors and McDonald's in the bustling city's highly competitive advertising community while still continuing to make records and tour.

Since then, Brian has released twelve more albums, toured around the world, seen his name at the top of Billboard and radio charts, worked and performed with industry all-stars like Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, Larry Graham, Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Musiq Soulchild, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Chuck Brown, and Bootsy Collins just to name a few, and received numerous awards including recently being nominated for a 2012 NAACP Image Award and a 2012 Soul Train Award.

Also in 2012, Brian founded the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway which is a 5-day celebration of wine, food, art and music set in California's famous wine region. The inaugural event featured Sinbad, Oleta Adams, Kenny Lattimore, David Benoit, Eric Darius and many top wineries throughout Napa Valley including Silver Oak, Miner Family, Chimney Rock and others. June of 2013 marked the 2nd annual event with the 3rd annual already set for June 11-15, 2014.

Regardless of his success, fans can be rest assured that with 14 albums and counting, Brian Culbertson always brings his very best ? and brings the very best out of others ? in all of his broad-ranging musical endeavors. Check out Brian's brand new project, a complete remake of his debut album, Another Long Night Out.
