Curtis Harding plays psychedelic music with a large dose of pure soul and funk, but is also known to take his music to other places as well. His songs are a warm mix of genres that come from the many musical lives he’s led. He used to join his gospel singing mother on tour through the United States and later on he started rapping as a kid in Atlanta.

Together with Cole Alexander of Black Lips he started a band, singing with Cee Lo Green and Outkast on the sides as well. With all of these experiences under his belt, Harding embraces both the glamour and decay of life. You can hear numerous emotions: pain, pleasure, desire, tenderness, consolation, sadness and strength.

His most recent album “If Words Were Flowers” came out at the end of 2021 and is a beautiful and engaging vintage soul album with influences from contemporary rhythm & blues, hip hop, jazz and neo-soul. The lyrics are firmly rooted in the here and now and bring themes like Black Lives Matters to the fore. De Volkskrant wrote that this was his most convincing and impressive album yet.
