Bio

Frank Porter is a solo acoustic act that almost defies description. This is a quote from last night's (1/15/2022) performance at Foundation Tavern in Allentown, PA. "I have seen a lot of acoustic guitar players and I have never seen anyone play like that on an acoustic guitar." This was from an audience member who said he plays a little guitar and has seen many musical acts over the years. He was not the only one saying things like this. There were a couple guys from Texas telling Frank he should play in Austin and that he is an amazing guitarist. Unfortunately, much of the time the audience members don't seem to understand what they are witnessing. Or to fully appreciate what he does with a looper pedal live. Before you roll your eyes and say I have seen those looper pedal guys out there I ask you to consider that at one point Gibson and Epiphone named Frank best lead guitarist out of 320 people from 6 states. Most looper pedal users can not say this truthfully. So this part of the bio covers his guitar skills. I believe we've got this one covered.

Next area is songwriting. He has 3 international songwriting awards since 2015. The latest being a third place in December of 2020. He has written a lot of songs and is close to finishing his 8th album titled, "Dark Horse." Yes, he knows there are other albums out there with this title. It just happens to fit his circumstance. If you join his band you will learn the reason for this album title. 

He has performed at many places. Let's start with the legendary CBGB's where the staff and audience loved his band He also played Bleeker Park and Gussy's in NYC among other places. He has played World Café, Love Park, Legendary Dobbs, Boathouse Row and many other places in Philadelphia. He has also played Le Grande Fromage, The Boneyard, Proud Mary's, The Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall and other places in Atlantic City. Some recent shows include The Roxy Theatre in Northampton, PA, The Majestic Theater in Pottsville, PA Crossroads in Garwood, NJ among others. 

He's experienced and professional and one thing we failed to mention is that in late 2021 one of the founders of Pandora found his original song Nitro in a live performance video on youtube and invited him to work with him and his staff on his new streaming concert platform. So Frank is very busy with this, but still performs in person fairly often. He's looking to open for bigger acts and do some festivals.
