About
Described as "a cool blast of modern oxygen to the American Songbook, transcending the genre", Jason Paul Curtis "is every bit a solid lyricist as he is an accomplished vocalist"(Criticaljazz Online Magazine). In the span of two years, Jason has become DC's most sought-after male vocalist. With his trio, Swinglab, and big band, Swing Machine, he delivered over 70 performances in 2012, including the Gaylord National Hotel (over 61 nights), the DC Capitol Club's Sinatra Soiree, Lansdowne Resort and, by special invitation, Holidays at White House.

With a self-described sound "east of Sinatra, west of Buble", his 2012 debut album, "Lovers Holiday", enjoyed international airplay, critical acclaim and is ranked in the Top 10 Best-Rated Vocal Jazz MP3 albums on Relaxed, contemporary and entirely listenable, he and his bands captivate sitting and dancing audiences for hours.

As easily comfortable in an arena stage as he is in a cabaret setting; either way - the voice will touch you.

Client feedback:

"Jason Paul Curtis was the perfect addition to my daughter's wedding in September 2012. We first heard of him through a referral and then actually got to see him perform his hotel show and were instantly sold on his talent, his band, their professionalism, their courtesy, and all round good guy attitudes.
But at the wedding itself is where he really shined. We had a specific long wedding planned with lots of different music and lots of rock 'n roll and even a big Beatles theme. But we always knew that we wanted a Sinatra style theme for the first three hours and it came off exactly as we had imagined and hoped-for.
So many of our guests commented on the choice of music and praise Jason for his perfect interpretations of Sinatra classic songs.
If I was having another wedding, there is no doubt we would want Jason there again"
-Gary Jacob

"From the first time we heard Jason and his band we knew that it was exactly what we needed for our wedding. The music created that relaxed intimate setting we were looking for and it suited the entire family. Jason created a wonderful set list and was able to include several requests and make wonderful suggestions for various special dances. We are so happy that Jason and his band were able to part of such a memorable day."
-Amber & Ryan Dempsey, Manassas, VA.

"Thank you so much for performing at my wedding. All of the guest loved your singing, and keep raving about how amazing you were. You really helped create a romantic atmosphere for the evening. I have several friends getting married in the next year or so, and they are all asking for your information. If I ever have another big event in the future you will be on the top of my list for entertainment. "
-Catherine and Ryan Gartzke, VA


Press for album, "LOVERS HOLIDAY":

"Curtis is one of those rare writers who can actually craft Christmas music with genuine spark and pull new elements out of the celebratory holiday"
-Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange


"It swings, baby, and there ain't a drop of manque on this cat, so give it a spin to help your holiday.. "
-midwestrecord

"Curtis is as every bit a solid lyricist as he is an accomplished vocalist, especially with his original composition.."
-criticaljazz

"The arrangements are great, and Curtis's delivery is not too overdone.."(more)
-Audiophile Audition

"If you like Buble/Frank Sinatra-styled jazzpop crooners, this is the 2012 holiday gift to you. Packs clever originals like the reluctant shopper's lament, Blue Friday.."
-Philadelphia Inquirer

"Jason Paul Curtis swings into winter with aplomb..the approach is the oxymoronic brash intimacy that brings forth breathy, close-mic phrasing and moments of bouyancy and bravado.."
-Talkinbroadway

"Curtis adds an intimate, lightly swinging atmosphere.."
-Don Alpert, Artlink

"This is charming stuff, to be inhaled while sitting next to the fireplace with a drink in hand."
-Allaboutjazz

"Curtis's voice is clear, well-focused and rich in flavor of the old-time crooners.."
