“Gregory Porter has one of the most amazing singing voices you’ll hear on planet earth. It can raise you to your feet with its power or help you sink into a chair and say, “ah,” because it’s so darned soothing.” —The Guardian 

Known for his warm baritone vocals, Gregory Porter rose to acclaim in the 2010s with his earthy, cross-pollinated brand of jazz, soul and gospel. A gifted singer of standards as well as more contemporary soul material, Porter has earned favorable comparisons to his idols Nat King Cole, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder. He announced his arrival by picking up a Grammy nomination for his 2010 debut, Water. After signing to Blue Note, he gained even wider notice for his third album, 2013’s Liquid Spirit, which hit number two on the jazz charts, and won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album—which established Porter as a global superstar and his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter.
