"Porter Lori Music"

"Porter Lori is what great music is about - prodigious vocals, crisp lyrics infused with unexpected beats that remain with you long after the song ends."

-Naila Culpepper, Warner Brothers - Warner bros

"Colorado Native, Porter Lori, making good in Los Angeles"

"His voice can sound smooth as melted chocolate or become coarse as the gravel roads he remembers from rural Kentucky. His “Manifesto,” short but powerful, evokes thoughts of country blues from the 50’s." - Urban Spectrum

"Mahogany Soul Child Radio Show-Denver, Colorado"

It's pleasantly surprising to be challenged by any music I hear today. That goes double for Porter Lori's sound. Its haunting and moves deep inside me in a good way. Its hard to put a finger on Porter's sound; I think I need my whole hand to grasp all that goes into this artist/musician's poetry, rhythms and depth. Once you hear Porter, you soon wont forget... - P.A.A.S (Paul Matthews-Host)


Porter Lori- Hell Or High Water (Itunes)
PORTER UNION- The Inbetween Sessions (porterlori.bandcamp.com)



Porter Lori was born in Louisville Kentucky. His Croatian mother was a Civil Rights activist steeped in the sounds of MoTown & his Father was one of the first Black politicians & a true cowboy. The "Porter Sound" is a rare & unique mixture of Blues,Country,and Soul sang with a deeply rich & unique voice. EDDIE VEDDER, BILL WHITHERS, & JOHNNY CASH are names that constantly get thrown around when comparing voices to Porters.
The PORTER UNION was created to re-invent & expand on Porters naturally genre-bending debut album "Hell Or High Water". The band includes long time friends Vince Guererro (Drums & Percussion) & Rodney Weitz (Viola)...together they create the rich sound that defines PORTER UNION. The Music, The Songwriting, The stories, The Voice...something truly original, rare, and ready to give the SXSW fans a HELL OF A SHOW!!
