Brian Culbertson是一位屡获殊荣的多乐器演奏家、词曲作者兼制作人，以其独特的跨流派现代爵士乐、节奏蓝调和放克音乐而闻名。出生在音乐丰富的芝加哥，他挖掘城市的声音，从8岁开始学习钢琴，12岁时很快学会了其他几种乐器，包括鼓、长号、贝斯和低音提琴。灵感来自1970年代的标志性R&B-jazz-pop艺术家像Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn等。他七年级开始创作原创音乐及钢琴独奏。八九十年代是smooth爵士大行其道的时期，smooth爵士那种只在乎当下、享受生活、玩乐音乐的精神也深深地根植在Brian骨子里。积累了30 个Billboard No. 1单曲成绩和18张专辑，其中大部分的当代爵士乐单曲高居榜首。
合作无数行业全明星包括Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Maurice White (EWF), Chuck Brown and Bootsy Collins等等。他还赢得包括NAACP Image Awards和Soul Train Awards等许多奖项。作为Brian玩乐音乐精神的延伸，他在2012年创办了Napa Valley Jazz Getaway（纳帕谷爵士逍遥游）。这是一家生意火爆的葡萄酒、音乐和生活方式体验店，他还担任该酒店的艺术总监。
Culbertson以他20周年结婚纪念日为灵感，创作了13首新歌，在上一个过去的情人节发行新作《Colors of Love》。爱情、浪漫和诱惑主打歌。历时近三个月的美国巡回演唱会将“Colors of Love”生动地搬上了舞台，并在很大程度上融入了视频元素。
Brian Culbertson is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer known for his distinct brand of genre-crossing contemporary jazz, R&B and funk. Mining the urban sounds of musically-rich Chicago, he began his musical studies on piano at age eight and quickly picked up several other instruments by the time he was twelve, including drums, trombone, bass and euphonium. Inspired by the iconic R&B-jazz-pop artists of the 1970s like Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn and others, Culbertson started composing original music for his seventh grade piano recital and hasn’t stopped since, amassing 30 Billboard No. 1 singles (and counting!) and a deep catalogue of 18 albums, most of which have topped the Billboard contemporary jazz charts.
Having worked and performed with countless industry all-stars such as Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Maurice White (EWF), Chuck Brown and Bootsy Collins just to name a few, Culbertson has won numerous awards and accolades along with nominations from the NAACP Image Awards and Soul Train Awards. In 2012, he founded the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, a flourishing wine, music and lifestyle experience for which he also serves as artistic director.
With love, romance and his recent twentieth wedding anniversary serving as his inspiration, Culbertson crafted thirteen new songs that was released as “Colors of Love” this past Valentine’s Day. The seduction begins with the first single, the amorous title track, which is a sensual R&B groove illuminated by lyrical acoustic piano melodies typical of the collection’s contents. A nearly three-month-long U.S. concert tour brought “Colors of Love” to life in a vivid theatrical production, incorporating video elements in a major way.
Regardless of his success and numerous accomplishments, fans can rest assured that Culbertson always brings his very best – and brings the very best out of others – in all of his broad-ranging musical and creative endeavors.
