Info for Soul Power

Soul isn't a feeling, a sound or a movement. It's a connection, a current in the air -- the spark of recognition, emotions leaping across live wires. It's the way a sinewy bassline steers your hips and eyes to the stranger across the club. It's how a handful of humble words can give millions the inspiration to overcome. It's the genius of a simple chorus that can explain the hard truths you couldn't last time you saw her.

Curtis Harding says that soul music, and his music, speak for themselves. It's selfevident on the Atlanta artist's debut, Soul Power. The driving sound of his electrified Stratocaster, the foot-stomping backbeat and the lyrics swimming in reverb -- with something this flourishing, it's almost reductive to just dig around the roots.

Harding's style was born in Michigan and bred on the road, a restless childhood spent singing gospel alongside an evangelizing mother, then cultivated in Atlanta, where he sang backup for CeeLo Green and befriended the Black Lips (he plays with Cole Alexander in Night Sun).

But, as befits a restless traveler, his music calls one place home, but fits in anywhere. The heartbreaking optimism of 'Next Time,' a wry breakup tale mapping out a road the protagonists may never meet upon, the bottom-scraping blues of 'Castaway,' or the wistful affection of 'Keep on Shining' could easily be Harding's story, or yours. They're scenes you didn't perform in, but know all the lines.

There's a foundation to the stirring soul Harding has created. 'Gospel is inspiring,' says Harding. 'From hardship and trials, you make something beautiful. It's the history of black people in America, what happened to us during slavery, it's the foundation of blues, R&B, soul, country, rock.' But he's not just preaching to the choir -- Harding's out there on the road, singing alongside everyone else looking for something real.


Curtis Harding
was born on June 11th, 1979 in Detroit, Michigan to a gospel singing mother, and a retired veteran father. As a young kid, Curtis Harding travelled all over the U.S. from State to State with his siblings, exposing him to all different kinds of music. Once Harding, settled down in Atlanta it seemed natural fit for his mix of Southern garage rock and R&B riffs and melodies. Inspired by Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley and B.B. King, he is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter whose songs evoke the sound of soul from the sixties, with the nitty gritty of In die music of today. Curtis Harding has carved out a place for himself in Atlanta's underground rock scene on his own terms, setting the stage for what could be the brightest year of his career yet. Curtis Harding says that soul music, and his music, speak for themselves. It's self-evident on the Atlanta artist's debut, Soul Power. The driving sound of his electrified Stratocaster, the foot-stomping backbeat and the lyrics swimming in reverb -- with something this flourishing, it's almost reductive to just dig around the roots. Harding's style was born in Michigan and bred on the road, a restless childhood spent singing gospel alongside an evangelizing mother, then cultivated in Atlanta, where he sang backup for CeeLo Green and befriended the Black Lips (he plays with Cole Alexander in Night Sun).
