Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist Brian Culbertson brings smooth Jazz grooves on "Your Smile", an inspiring piano-driven composition from his 2012 project "Dreams EP" on Verve Music Group. Brian's unique touch on the keys is the basis of emotion for "Your Smile", a song which speaks towards uplifting the spirit of the listner. This song provides a look into Brian's musical approach and the vibe you'll receive by listening to his forthcoming EP featuring his original compositions accompanied by the vocal talent of Vivian Green and Stokley Williams of Mint Condition.


Brian Culbertson began his quest in music at the age of 8 on piano, adding drums at 9, trombone at 10 then bass at 12. He grew up loving genre-crossing jazz-pop artists such as Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Tower of Power, The Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets, Earth, Wind & Fire and Maynard Ferguson. So passionate and naturally gifted was Brian that his 7th grade piano recital consisted of all original pieces. He flourished in high school bands with his father, Jim Culbertson, as the school’s award-winning jazz band director, then spent two years at DePaul University before going on to compose commercial jingles for clients such as United Airlines, Oldsmobile, Sears and McDonald’s in Chicago’s competitive advertising community.

In 1994 - at age 20 - Brian self-produced his debut, Long Night Out, followed in short order by Modern Life (1995 - his first album to top R&R and Gavin’s Contemporary Jazz charts, driven by the hit single “Come To Me”) and After Hours (1996). With 1997’s Secrets, the hits kept comin’ with “So Good” and “On My Mind”. His 1999 follow-up Somethin’ Bout Love also sat high among the CJ Top 20 for nearly a year with the two #1 singles “Back In The Day” and “Do You Really Love Me?”
