Starting off his early life in Sacramento and being raised in Bakersfield, California, Gregory Porter was brought up by a minister mother who always encouraged him to sing and to pursue his musical talents. After graduating in 1989, Gregory focussed on his athletic career and wanted to become a successful footballer, with a scholarship in place, it all seemed like it was set in stone, but in his junior year, Gregory suffered from a shoulder injury and was no longer able to follow through with the football training.
With his earlier encouragement from his family members, Gregory Porter decided to pursue his music abilities and with a move to Brooklyn in 2004 he started to make his dream a reality, performing at local venues and secured himself a weekly residency. Within a few years and experience under his belt, he was able to create a record and released two studio albums, one in 2010 and one in 2012. Although these releases helped to spread the word of just how good this singer was, it wasn't until his third album 'Liquid Spirit' was released that Gregory Porter started to gain exposure. In 2013 the record hit Europe and the US, gained over 100,000 sales in the UK alone and became a chart topping album within the jazz genre, as it climbed up the top 10 charts in the UK.
With his newly found success, Gregory Porter was now the talk of the town and no one could get enough of what this talented musician had to offer and just a year after the release of Liquid Spirit, Gregory received a Grammy for Best Vocal Jazz Album.
Gregory Porter might have started later than some in his music career but the last few years have been bigger than ever with his major singles and of course his next album, Take Me to the Alley in 2016. The record became the must-listen to title on the scene and brought Gregory Porter to perform on impressive stages around the world, such as at the UK's famous Glastonbury Festival in 2016.
His smooth and flawless vocal tone draws people in and with his outstanding concerts and showcase on UK TV shows such as; Jools Holland and BBC One's The Graham Norton Show – he has become a worldwide sensation!
