There’s a poignancy and sense of comfort to Curtis Harding’s music. The Atlanta based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who previously provided backing vocals for Cee Lo Green creates lush soundscapes that are inspired by 70’s rock infused with soulful intonations. With the ability to enrapture you with his charming golden tones soundtracked by rich instrumentation that adds depth to each of his compositions, it’s Harding’s storytelling that shines through the most. He’s already shown just why with his brilliant 2014 debut album Soul Power.
Accompanied by nothing but his acoustic guitar, Harding delivers an absolutely breathtaking performance of the Danger Mouse produced “Wednesday Morning Atonement” which is taken from his sensational new album Face Your Fear. Opening with the gentle strums of the guitar which serve as the backbone to the show, Harding’s soulful musings arrive with a warmth and charm that has you hooked from the moment that they pierce through the soundscape. A stripped back but equally beautiful rendition of the original synth-laden gem, this is one you definitely don’t want to miss.
Enjoy the stunning session up top and be sure to check out Harding’s delightful sophomore album Face Your Fear which is out via ANTI Records.
