PORTER

PORTER was born and raised a couple hours from Toronto, Canada. He first picked up a guitar while living in Florida killing off a Canadian winter. He left Florida hitch hiking around the states and back home to Canada. It was during this time adrift that he educated himself on guitar and harmonica. He has also become a very interesting songwriter with a growing song catalog ranging on many topics. What happened during his time adrift can only be pieced together through hints and stories in some of his songs. He was hooked. A junkie of travel and music. This modern day troubadour gave up a good job and a cozy home to move to Nashville in Jan/09. He spent the next several months improving his skills, paying his dues and learning the music business. The west has always called to him so he answered by selling everything he didn’t need and moving into his new home. A 99 Dodge Caravan! All to be able to afford moving to San Francisco. There he met producer Scott Mathews. The result was his debut studio album titled PORTER – HIT THE ROAD.
With the studio work complete Porter cruised back to Canada playing the Vancouver area. He single handedly set up what turned out to be a successful summer cross Canada tour following the release of the album! Porter has proven he can make the sacrifices needed to go after what he wants, 100%. “Music is an amazing tool! It’s the key to a locked door, It’s more than entertainment, It can change people’s lives! Hell, it sure has changed mine.”
In 2011 Porter set up his first U.K tour and spent the summer building a new fan base and laying ground work for future tours on the other side of the pond.
In 2013 Porter was on the loose again. This time in Australia. He based himself in Brisbane and performed regularly before disappearing into the outback for several months.
When he resurfaced he was loaded with some great new songs. Those songs carried him back into the studio with Producer Scott Mathews where he recorded his second album WILDFIRE which encompasses up beat, good time songs, rocking traveling songs and some catchy, folkie shut up and listen.
WILDFIRE was released in spring 2014.
Porter is now based in Ireland and after hearing of the massive destruction in Western Canada from out of control bush fires, he wrote the song A Northern Town and hit the studio. Recording for the first time in Ireland he came out with a song that is truly Canadian! He wrote the song to bring hope and pride to everyone who was effected or helped in anyway. The single was released in June 2016.
His brand new full length album is due to release March 2018!
So keep your eyes on this troubadour! He’s proven that he’s got what it takes. He now needs your support! “Having put some miles under my feet, I now realize that if you can simply believe in yourself, then others will believe in you too.” “I’m standing on the edge of it all” says Porter.
If you happen to walk into a bar and see a lone figure on stage listen close...It just might be PORTER
