Alligator Records recording artist and AirPlay Direct Member, Curtis Salgado adds three new Blues Music Award statues to his already impressive collection of awards and honors. AirPlay Direct is proud of Curtis, and pleased to see his work professionally honored. This is an amazing piece of art… he deserves it!
Soul and R&B singer Curtis Salgado, whose latest CD, The Beautiful Lowdown, was called "an essential gem" by Blues Music Magazine, received three awards: Soul Blues Album Of The Year for The Beautiful Lowdown, Song Of The Year for Walk A Mile In My Blues (written by David Duncan, Curtis Salgado and Mike Finnigan) and Soul Blues Male Artist of The Year.
“Curtis is so tremendously talented and gifted that the awards just keep coming," says Lynda Weingartz, CEO – AirPlay Direct. "As his artistic body of work continues to grow, we also get to watch Curtis continuously evolve and surprise us with his unique approach to music. History will now have an even more colorful story to tell of all the accomplishments of Mr. Curtis Salgado. We are certainly proud to have Curtis and partners like Alligator Records as a part of the AirPlay Direct family.”
"We at Alligator are immensely proud of Curtis Salgado and his “The Beautiful Lowdown” album. His three victories at the Blues Music Awards this year reflected the not only the depth of his musical talent but also his ability to communicate his soulfulness to the listener," states Bruce Iglauer, President / Founder - Alligator Records. "We’re very proud to have this wonderful artist on our label."
Salgado is currently recuperating from his March 2017 quadruple bypass surgery. Expecting a full recovery, he is working hard to begin singing again as soon as possible. “All I want to do is get on stage," says Salgado. "That's where I belong."
