Portia is a soulful, neo-trip hop band, born not so much out of desire to express, but of an inability to suppress it. Melodious, eerie at times with a prominent electronic influence, sometimes grittier than others.


Eric Arner and Shane Miersch are veteran performers in the Windsor indie-rock scene. Steph Copeland has travelled far from her Southern Ontario roots to spend a few years in L.A. finally turning to the Windsor area as a convenient collaborative springboard for her involvement with the Detroit Electronic scene. While working with such up-and-coming Detroiters as Szymanski, E. Spleece, Jerry the Cat, and Ab/nrml, Copeland was approached by the two Windsorites to form the trip-hop/rock band, Portia.
