Gregory Porter wields one of the most captivating baritone voices in music today. An artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, Porter solidifies his standing as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with ‘Take Me to the Alley’, “Liquid Spirit” (both Grammy winners for best vocal jazz album) and, most recently, in 2017 with “Nat King Cole & Me”. All published by Blue Note / Universal Music.
Porter is a performer of extraordinary presence who has been compared with the greatest of the greats, such as Joe Williams, Nat Cole, Donny Hathaway, and Marvin Gaye.
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.
“Gregory Porter é uma alma antiga. Canta um jazz carregado de soul, gospel e blues, e faz as canções monumentais de Liquid Spirit parecerem ao alcance de qualquer voz. (...) Mas não nos deixemos cair no engodo. Ninguém canta assim.”
