Porter visits Blues From Brentwood

Porter

I had the very good pleasure of welcoming Gary Porter into the studio on June 27th….along with Dave Melling to provide accompaniment on Keyboards. We had a great interview and a few laughs and some fantastic vocal styling from Porter as he gave a preview of two tracks to appear on his upcoming CD, due out later this year. The tracks Hand on My Heart a melodic ballad and the title track Stone Chucker are sure to catch the ear of anyone interested in intriguing lyrics and vibrant instrumental backing. Eager to hear the tracks with the entire compliment of the band, I’ll be including these and other tracks into the playlist once the CD become available for release.

Porter;  band membes;
Gary Porter – Guitar/Vocals/Songwriting
Dave Melling – Keys / Trumpet / Tenor Sax
Mick Harding – Upright Bass
Clive Dimmock – Baritone & Tenor Sax
Phil Mount – Drums & Percussion
Dave Barlow – Tenor Sax
This new line-up started playing gigs throughout Europe around 2011 supporting various artists including Grammy award nominee James Hunter.
This period of activity culminated in the release of the jazz/ska/blues album ‘Can’t Keep Still’ in summer 2012 which has gained much praise and support from radio and  various press publications including Album of the Week in Europe/Spain.
The band are presently working on their new album ‘Stone Chucker’ and are touring the UK this fall to promote its release.
They are also playing as a main billing act at the BRENTWOOD Music Festival on 7th July.
