Bio

Brian Culbertson began his music journey at the age of eight on piano, adding drums at nine, trombone at 10 then bass at 12. He grew up in Decatur, IL, loving genre-crossing jazz-pop artists such as Chicago, Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, the Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets and Sting. So naturally gifted was Brian, his 7th grade piano recital consisted of all original tunes. Brian flourished in high school bands where his father, Jim Culbertson, was the school's award-winning jazz band director, and moved to Chicago to complete his studies at private DePaul University. He then went on to compose jingles for clients such as United Airlines, Oldsmobile, Sears and McDonald's in the bustling city's highly competitive advertising community.

In 1994, at age 20, Brian self-produced his debut album, Long Night Out. Since then, Brian has released fourteen albums, toured around the world, seen his name at the top of Billboard and radio charts, collaborated with industry all-stars like Maurice White, Patti Austin, Brian McKnight, Chris Botti, Kirk Whalum, Ledisi, Boney James, and "Bootsy" Collins, and received numerous awards and recognition.

Culbertson most recent release, Another Long Night Out , has been a triumph of entrepreneurial spirit. Released independently through his BCM Entertainment label, Another Long Night Out spent 6 weeks atop the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts following its February release. The first single, "Fullerton Ave." experienced similar success at radio.

In addition to his recording and touring successes, Culbertson is founder of Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, a 5-day food, wine, and jazz music festival that bears his name. The festival draws more than 2,000 each year to the idyllic California wine country.

Regardless of his success, fans can rest assured that, with 14 albums and counting, Brian Culbertson always brings his very best - and brings the very best out of others - in all of his broad-ranging musical endeavors!
