In 2005, when Gregory Porter started singing Tuesdays at Harlem’s now-closed St. Nick’s Pub, he took a major leap forward as a jazz figure. Since then the California native has earned two Grammy wins and a worldwide audience.
Critics and vocal fans have embraced Porter’s brand of jazz, soul, and gospel, expertly blended together and wrapped in a warm baritone delivery. Across five albums Porter has recorded standards, contemporary soul, and his own original compositions. His influences include Nat King Cole and Stevie Wonder, among others.
