GENTLEMAN Limited Vinyl LP

by Curtis Stigers

Release Date: 01 May 2020

Format: LP Vinyl

Label: Univeral Vinyl




What does it mean to be a gentleman in this day and age? Curtis Stigers found himself confronting that question from a variety of angles as he was preparing for his latest album.

On a personal level, he was watching his daughter leave home for college, beginning a new chapter in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp. Back at home,

he was reinventing his own life with a new romance and marriage.


On a grander scale, Curtis Stigers found himself, like so many others, enraged by the lack of role models in public life. From the divisive and openly corrupt dealings of politicians to the exposed underbelly

of the entertainment industry, it became increasingly difficult to find an example of manhood worth looking up to.


His new album thus offers a wry yet elegant reassessment of the modern male. It arrives with a Spring bouquet of heartfelt songs that offer a unique view of love and loss from the perspective of a hopeless romantic

who’s been through the gamut of emotion and lived to tell the tale. At times sardonic, not immune to drowning his sorrows in one (or two) too many, Curtis Stigers nonetheless remains a true gentleman,

even when he comes bearing more thorns than roses.


Along with his own lyrical observations, penned in collaboration with longtime partners Larry Goldings and David Poe, Stigers also commiserates and celebrates with the words of top songwriters like

Nick Lowe, Tom T. Hall and John Fulbright. He finds the perfect mood for each tune with a stellar band - pianist and organist Larry Goldings (James Taylor), bassist David Piltch (k.d. lang), drummer Austin Beede

(Alastair Greene Band), trumpeter John “Scrapper” Sneider (Madeleine Peyroux), percussionist Doug Yowell (Duncan Sheik) and cellist Jody Ferber (Esperanza Spalding).
