Blue Note recording artist and Grammy-winning singer, GREGORY PORTER combines the gentlest of spirits with one of the most majestically powerful voices in contemporary jazz and soul. Whether it’s his moving, breakthrough Motor City protest single, 1960 What?, his collaborations with British electronic producers Disclosure or his new #1 jazz LP Take Me To The Alley, Porter continues to win over audiences while swinging effortlessly between hand-clapping gospel and seriously good jazz bop.
Following his standout set at Glastonbury Festival earlier his year, Porter is playing two already sold-out shows in Australia this September. Tonight however, he will be live In Conversation with Groovescooter‘s Paris Pompor talking about everything from music, the art of songwriting and his creative inspirations, to growing up in Bakersfield with seven siblings and a mother who instilled in him strong ideas of social justice.
