ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Curtis Mayfield III is an extraordinary songwriter as well as skilled record producer. Curtis is the son of R&B legend Curtis Mayfield and you can hear that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. From Curtis’ thought provoking lyrics in tunes like “Just Being Me” to the lush arrangement of “What If?” he has lived and learned with one of the best and most recognized producer / songwriters of our time in his father.

"CIII" as he is affectionately referred to in the music world was born August 10th in Chicago, Illinois. Curtis is an exciting and extremely talented musician that plays over 13 instruments fluently. This includes all woodwind instruments from Flutes to Clarinet and Oboe to Keyboards and Guitar. At an early age Curtis joined his grade school band and immediately began to explore his musical creativity which never seemed to have any boundaries. He quickly rose to become one of the most renowned classical soloist in Illinois youth orchestra competitions bringing home first place medals in several competitions.

In High School Curtis was able to branch out into Jazz music and studied under what many believe to be the best High School music director in the country, Mr. David Eanes. It was under Eanes tutalage that Curtis began to grow musically and as a leader amongst his peers. Curtis quickly became a McDonalds All-American musician and was listed in Who’s Who in Music when he was only a sophomore. Curtis went on to earn numerous awards both as a soloist and leader in his band.

By the time Curtis left High School he had already played several shows with his father, Lionel Hampton, Bunky Green, and many other notable artists. It was only after moving to Atlanta and spending even more time in the studio working with his dad on his Honesty Album that Curtis realized in what direction he would focus musically. For it was during this time that Curtis realized that he had the gift of being able to put together a record from beginning to end. Since then Curtis has been on a mission to become one of today’s most respected record producer / songwriters. After spending time with his father Curtis returned to his roots in Illinois and began recording local acts that have gone on to become very successful. Side by Side, Wanda Rogers are 2 acts that come to mind that have been extremely successful and have benefited from Curtis’ songwriting and production skill. Curtis has also done several voiceovers for major corporations as well as written jingles for both Radio and TV.

It was only during a conversation with his wife and David Eanes that the concept of "Just Being Me" began to take hold.

“I had been considering putting together a CD for a while but that conversation with Dave and Kim really cemented the idea. I knew I had to go ahead and put it out.”

Today Curtis took on the challenge and the result is the hot new CD “Just Being Me”

So sit back and enjoy the ride!

It was said long ago there is a new star on the horizon, let's watch it rise.
The music brought back days long gone but not forgotten. A reminder of who rules the world. Plus soothing instrumentals to wind down with on the drive from work. A variety of sounds in one gigantic little disk. WOW!

Something new from an already hot producer
Curtis we know you primarily as a Hip Hop and POP producer. I never thought you would put out something like this. Just goes to show how versatile you really are. It's well done and makes you think about your priorities. I just wanted to congratulate you on your new CD and look forward to hearing it on radio.

The CD is fantastic. I love it!
I did not order enough of them! 'What if?' moved me to tears. I love all the tunes and it is hard to choose which one is my personal favorite. I love 'Pray'....love the little intros on that one and 'Just being Me'. The details that you always put into producing came shining through on this CD.

Thank you for blessing the universe with this CD. I really do believe the good we put into the universe creates a higher greater vibration of goodness for everyone. Thank you for sharing your gift!

Great Musical Talent
Having both written and produced songs for other artists it just seemed fitting that Curtis saved these personal tracks to be released on his debut album that features his own artistry from beginning to end, exemplifying why music is his first love. His focus and talent comes to a fine point in this deeply personal well crafted Contemporary Gospel CD. "Just Being Me" delivers a spirital gift on every track. This is a CD that helps you start or end your day on a blessed note.
