Curtis Stigers brings his tour to Fairfield, Croydon
Curtis Stigers is now regarded as being at the forefront of a new generation of jazz singers.
The singer, saxophonist and songwriter aims to push the boundaries of conventional jazz with his original interpretation of modern songs.
"This is my niche, my speciality," he says. "I have a great love and an eclectic knowledge of a wide array of songwriters and musical genres, and I know how to bring them all together into one cohesive sound."
He is now touring to promote his new album, Lost in Dreams, which is a mix of his own material, well known standards, jazz renditions of songs by the likes of Annie Lennox, Ron Sexsmith and John Lennon and a generous doses of soul, pop and blues.

"What I'm after is a complex and ever-changing thing, which makes it difficult to define who I am," says Stigers. "I sing beautiful love songs, but I'm not really a crooner. I write, but I'm not just a singer-songwriter. I'm certainly a jazz singer but so much more, too."
"That's who I am and there's nobody else like me. That's how I want my music to sound. Like me."
