Bio and Booking

Gregory Porter

 

An artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, Gregory Porter solidifies his standing as his generation´s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with Take Me to the Alley, the much-anticipated follow-up to his sensational 2013 Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit. Yet in his remarkable career, Porter has time and again demonstrated an innate ability to transcend genre and connect with audiences from all walks of life, and his new music reflects the singer´s continued and mindful growth as an artist and as a person amidst the constant touring demands that have resulted from tremendous international success. 

Liquid Spirit – which followed the critically-acclaimed and Grammy nominated albums Water (2010) and Be Good (2012) - quickly grew into a global phenomenon, selling a million albums worldwide and becoming the most streamed jazz album of all-time with over 20 million streams. The album has sold Platinum in the UK and Germany, and Gold in France, The Netherlands, and Austria.
As Porter polishes his artistry as one of our most heartfelt singer-songwriters on Take Me to the Alley, his burgeoning body of work will continue to give voice to its modern times while simultaneously echoing the legacy of jazz and soul´s yesteryear and informing generations of musicians to come.
Nat King Cole & Me, the recording Gregory has done together with Vince Mendoza as conductor and a 66 piece orchestra from London in May 2017 will be released in September 2017 by Blue Note /Universal. It´s a statement of Gregory´s most loved songs of his hero, the legendary pianist and singer Nat King Cole.
Also the fantastic documentary Gregory Porter “Don´t forget your Music” is available already since April 2017.
