An Evening With Gregory Porter

Acclaimed singer and songwriter Gregory Porter was raised in Bakersfield, California, and cites the Bakersfield Southern Gospel sound, as well as his mother’s Nat King Cole record collection, as fundamental influences on his own sound.
Porter began singing in small jazz clubs in San Diego while attending San Diego State University on a football scholarship. Eventually Porter moved to New York City to pursue music full-time and his career began to ascend with the release of his first two albums—Water (2010) and Be Good (2012)—both of which received Grammy nominations.
In 2013, he released his breakout Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit which quickly grew into a global phenomenon, selling more than a million albums and earning 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 firmly established him as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter. In 2017, Porter released the heartfelt tribute album Nat King Cole & Me, and in 2020 returned to his original songwriting on the uplifting ALL RISE, both of which received Grammy nominations.
His 2021 release Still Rising collected new songs, covers, duets and a selection of his much-loved favorites. Porter has hosted the podcast The Hang, a conversation series featuring his famous friends, as well as his own cooking show The PorterHouse, in which the singer shares recipes inspired by his local community, experiences from touring the globe and family cooking traditions from growing up with his mother and seven siblings.
