Over the course of crafting a 20-album catalogue and architecting more than 30 Billboard No. 1 singles as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Brian Culbertson has charted his own unique course in music. Label him jazz and he makes a funk record. Call him an R&B artist and he drops an acoustic jazz trio collection. Brand him pop and he creates a 32-minute New Age opus. And you’d be hard pressed to name another instrumentalist of his ilk who can mount an elaborately designed concert production that will keep him on the road for three consecutive months. An exuberant performer, Culbertson spends months in preproduction meticulously working to create stunning visuals - staging, lighting, wardrobe and effects – in order to put on a mesmerizing show each time he takes the stage.
Culbertson burst onto the scene in 1994 with a chart-topping album that he recorded in his college apartment featuring keyboard-led contemporary jazz tracks. “Long Night Out” landed him a lengthy record deal and signaled that a star was born.
Possessing style, panache and a savvy business mind capable of moving the needle in music and beyond, Culbertson founded and curates the annual Napa Valley and Chicago Jazz Getaways, which have attracted guests from all over the globe to experience his premier events.
Due to required changes in his normal touring schedule, Brian pivoted to the next best thing, a weekly LIVE show from his recording studio utilizing the latest in cutting-edge streaming tech. Bringing together fans and artists in an intimate setting, “THE HANG” airs Friday nights at 8pm ET on Facebook with encore on YouTube, and all episodes can be revisited on our website at TheHang.TV.
Whether you’re listening to Brian’s music on record, on stream or live in concert, you’re hearing an eclectic, entertaining and engaging set from an artist at the peak of his power.
