Curtis Salgado in It’s Not Made That Way video

Curtis Salgado has released a video for his track It’s Not Made That Way.

It’s lifted from the soul, blues and R&B vocalist’s latest album entitled The Beautiful Lowdown, out on April 8 via Alligator Records.

Salgado says of the record: “My heart and soul are in this. I worked my tail off and let the songs lead the way. I wanted to write memorable songs with strong melodies that stick to you – and that’s what’s here.”

The Beautiful Lowdown is available for pre-order directly from the label’s website. He’ll head out on the road to support the release with a 35-date North American tour, starting in Portland on March 16.
