"Excerpt from "Making It Big""

Originating in 2006 when Sam Hendricks, Eric Sunray and Ryan Stevenson realized their common interest in music could amount to more than good dinner conversation, Stevenson, now a junior, said the creation of Portocal flowed smoothly...."We knew we had something good," Stevenson said. "But we couldn't get anywhere without a singer."....After finding a vocalist in Byron Lewis, Hendricks, Sunray and Stevenson-drums, guitar and bass, respectively-launched a campaign to complete their first EP: Regression....In August 2008, Portocal recorded six songs at Group Effort Studios in Covington, Ky...."A show can be a success on multiple levels," Sunray said. "A show is a success if we play our best with good energy and presence, regardless of how large the crowd is."...Despite the competitive music scene, Portocal members said they are ready to introduce their music to Miami students and those outside of Oxford...."We're confident in our craft, and we think we have a good thing going," Sunray said. - The Miami Student
