|Acclaimed singer-songwriter Gregory Porter was raised in Bakersfield, California, and he cites the Bakersfield Southern gospel sound and his mother’s Nat King Cole record collection as fundamental influences on his own sound. In 2013, he released his breakout Blue Note debut, Liquid Spirit, which sold over a million albums and earned Porter his first Grammy Award, with NPR declaring him “America’s next great jazz singer.” His 2016 follow-up, Take Me to the Alley, won Porter his second Grammy for Best Vocal Jazz Album and established him as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter. His 2021 release Still Rising collected new songs, covers, duets, and a selection of his favorite songs. Concertgoers can expect to hear a selection of material from across Porter’s Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning albums.
