"Inspired, powerful R&B showcases Salgado's exceptional range and muscular, soulful vocals" --Billboard

Curtis Salgado has been playing soul-powered R&B for over 40 years. On THE BEAUTIFUL LOWDOWN, the deeply-rooted singer effortlessly blends classic soul sounds and funk grooves with up-to-the-minute lyrics. His full-force vocals--intense and uninhibited--bring an urgency and edge to his timeless original songs.

THE BEAUTIFUL LOWDOWN is Curtis Salgado’s most personal record, as for the first time he wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs. He also co-produced and contributed to horn and background vocal parts. The results, from soulful Van Morrison-esque rock to slippery funk, from gritty harp-stoked blues to devastating ballads, are nothing short of spectacular.
