Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Brian Culbertson grew up near Chicago. His musical journey began at the age of 8 on piano, adding drums at 9, trombone at 10, and bass at 12. So naturally gifted was Brian, that he started composing original music for his 7th grade piano recital. He flourished in school bands throughout high school and moved to downtown Chicago to continue his musical studies at DePaul University. In 1994, aged 20, he self-produced his debut album. Since releasing “Long Night Out”, Brian has released fifteen more albums, travelled around the world and seen his name at the top of Billboard and radio charts. He has worked and performed with industry all-stars like Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, Larry Graham, Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, and Chuck Brown, just to name a few. Furthermore, he has received numerous awards. Brian is currently working on a new “romantic” themed album which will be released on Valentine’s Day 2018.
