Biography

Versatile vocalist Curtis Harding fuses the passion and intensity of classic soul and R&B with the uncompromising attitude of indie rock and the nervy swagger of garage punk, and has made a name for himself in both rock and R&B circles. Born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, Harding got his first taste of performing from his mother Dorothy, a traveling gospel performer who brought her son on the road with her and occasionally invited the boy up on-stage to sing. In time, Harding settled in Atlanta, Georgia, where his strong, passionate vocal style earned him some valuable allies. Harding's vocals appeared on several remixes from OutKast, and he became part of Cee Lo Green's team, working with him as a back-up vocalist on the road, adding vocal tracks to the albums Cee-Lo Green & His Perfect Imperfections and The Lady Killer, and co-writing material with Green. However, in 2011 Harding became part of an unusual project when he crossed paths with Cole Alexander, guitarist with Georgia garage punks the Black Lips, and they discovered they both had a passion for vintage Southern soul. Harding and Alexander launched a collaborative project, Night Sun, that mixed R&B and garage rock, and after a handful of local shows, the combo released a single in 2013 on Burger Records, the celebrated California indie label. Harding liked Burger's way of doing business and the label was impressed by Harding's voice; they struck a deal for a solo album, and Harding's first full-length effort, Soul Power, appeared in the spring of 2014. The album received enthusiastic reviews, and Harding landed a new record deal with the artist-friendly independent label Anti-. His second full-length, 2017's Face Your Fear, was produced by Harding in collaboration with Danger Mouse and Sam Cohen. ~ Mark Deming
