Brian Culbertson

Brian Culbertson is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer who crosses genres between contemporary jazz, R&B, and funk and heralds from the musically rich city of Chicago. Starting at the early age of 8 on piano, he quickly picked up several other instruments by age 12 including drums, trombone, bass, & euphonium. Inspired by the great R&B/Jazz/Pop artists of the 70’s like EWF, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn, and others, Brian Culbertson started composing original music for his 7th grade piano recital and hasn’t stopped having self-produced 16 solo albums, most of which have topped the Billboard charts. Brian is always striving to push the boundaries of the contemporary jazz scene which is evident by his latest album, Funk! This new set is a throwback to the stanky P-Funk records from back in the day combining the throbbing bass lines, greasy horn lines, sing-a-long choruses and landing hard on the ‘One.’

Peter White

There's an Englishman in the oversized red suit preparing to slide down the chimney of all the good little smooth jazz fans this holiday season. Peter White returns with Mindi Abair and Rick Braun to Annapolis for his annual extravaganza with jazzy versions of seasonal classics, a few original holiday songs and some of their best known hits. The show promises enough fun, funk, jazz and pop to get meanest of Scrooges into the spirit.

Smooth jazz guitarist Peter White's lyrical lines and musical inventiveness are a joy to listen to. The affable Englishman's charm and playfulness come through in his music, giving his style of smooth jazz a liveliness that others in the genre lack.

Eric Darius

Every now and then an artist bursts onto the scene, changing the rules and challenging the status quo. Eric Darius is one of those artists fearlessly pushing all musical boundaries. He is one of the most exciting musicians to enter the Contemporary Jazz scene in the last decade. His explosive arrival as a recording artist at the age of 17 caused a frenzy! Now, with four critically acclaimed albums under his belt, a Number One hit single and Five Top 10 radio hits on Nielsen’s R&R/Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts, 29-year-old Shanachie recording artist, Eric Darius, is on a mission. Prophetically hailed Debut Artist of the Year by Smooth Jazz News in 2004, Eric has shared the stage with innumerable renown artists, such as Prince, Brian McKnight, Jamie Foxx, Carlos Santana, Wynton Marsalis, Babyface, and George Benson, just to name a few. His music innovatively crosses over all music boundaries from Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, to Pop, creating a very distinctive, fresh sound and approach that is uniquely his own. Eric Darius continues to be a force that is unequalled in today’s musical landscape.

Morgan James

One voice is all it takes. The right vocalist can make you fall in love at first listen, elicit tears, or bring you back to a different era altogether. A microphone and a stage remain the only necessities. That holds true for New York-based pop/soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway chanteuse Morgan James. On her full-length debut for Epic Records, "Hunter," she casts an unbreakable spell with a powerhouse voice, theatrical swing, and a soulful poise.

"Hunter" boasts powerful and personal renditions of Prince's "Call My Name" (reached Top 15 at Urban AC radio and #1 most added). Morgan assumed co-writing duties on eight of the collection's eleven tracks and even performed all of her own background vocals and harmonies. From the empowering farewell of "Fed Up On You" to the mournful rumination of "You Never Lied", she continually bares it all—both emotionally and musically.

Since "Hunter's" release, Morgan's music videos have accumulated more than 20 million views (and climbing) and her viral cover of Ariana Grande's "Break Free" appeared on America's #1 morning show, Good Morning America. Morgan toured Europe, the US and Australia with Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, and isnow embarking on her own tour in the US and abroad while she pens the next album of new music.
