Southern Soul Music’s newest male crooner, Curtis “Certified” Yarbro, arrives on the Southern Soul scene with a silky voice that the ladies love.  This multi faceted artist/producer/songwriter is from Washington DC, by way of Indianapolis, Indiana.

“Certified” knew at the age of nine (9) years old that he wanted to sing and entertain.  He grew up in a musical family, learning at a very early age to play multiple instruments, including drums, percussion, bass, keyboards and guitar. 

“Certified” has played with some of the greatest Blues and Southern Soul crooners, such as: Tyrone Davis, Mel Waiters, Floyd Taylor (son of late great, Johnnie Taylor), just to name a few.  “Certified” is becoming the next best young crooner to keep Southern Soul bumping in radio and clubs around the world. Certified has an electrifying stage show performance that keeps the ladies on their feet dancing to his own unique style.

One of the hottest tunes on his EP is titled, “Sweetness is her weakness.”  This song is destined to go #1 on the Southern Soul charts.  When asked who he models his smooth moves and performances after, “Certified” replied, “I admire Tyrone Davis, Donny Ray, Mel Waiters, James Bell, Floyd Taylor and Marvin Sease, just to name a few.”  He acknowledges many that have paved the way so he can follow his passion, which is writing, singing and producing great Southern Soul music. When he’s not traveling on tour or performing gigs, Curtis likes to spend time with his family and children. He enjoys taking care of his horses and cooking. He keeps God first in his life and loves making great music.   Look out for his EP, “TEACH ME” in stores near you.  Get ready for a Hot New Crooner on this Southern Soul scene with his new CD entitled "Baby I Will".
