Curtis Harding

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you soul man Curtis Harding and his distinctly sunny vibes…

 

Who Is He?

Harding made his name working as a back-up singer for Cee Lo Green and then moonlighted as a member of Black Lips’ Cole Alexander’s soul side project Night Sun, now he’s going it alone…

 

Who Does He Sound Like?

His tracks are steeped in classic soul, with plenty of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder high in the mix, but there’s grimier element to the tracks, with flecks of MC5 esque garage rock covering the songs.

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

The album’s incredible, just tune after tune after tune.

 

Can I Hear Something?

You most certainly can. His new single ‘Keep On ‘Shining’ is below for you and can be purchased from our digital store by clicking here.

 

Curtis Harding’s debut album Soul Power is out now and can be ordered from hmv stores.
