Blues Singer Curtis Salgado

      Premiere Blues Singer Curtis Salgado joined us today to sing "Strung Out" from his new CD Soul Shot as well as a special ditty he created just for AM Northwest. Fantastic!

      Winner of the 2010 Blues Music Award for Soul Blues Artist of the Year, Salgado effortlessly mixes blues, funk and R&B with a delivery that is raw and heartfelt. He moves with ease from the tenderest ballads to the most full-throated stompers. Soul Shot was produced by funk and R&B guitarist Marlon McClain, drummer Tony Braunagel and co-produced by Salgado. Soul Shot speaks loud and clear to contemporary audiences, carrying on the timeless spirit of 1960s and `70s R&B. The album features four Salgado originals and seven carefully chosen covers. Songs by Johnny "Guitar" Watson, George Clinton, Otis Redding and Bobby Womack flow into and out of Salgado's own compositions. Each track--the slow-burning ballads and the driving rockers--is delivered with the vocal power and passion of a musical master.

      With Soul Shot and a long list of tour dates already planned, the biggest performances of Curtis Salgado's life are surely yet to come and he is set to reach the largest audience of his career.
