PORTS are a four piece band from Northern Ireland known for performing ‘emotionally literate rock’. They consist of Steven McCool (Bass and Vocals), Mark O'Doherty (Drums), Ryan Griffiths (Guitar) and Conor Mason (Piano). After the release of their first demo ‘I’d Let You Win’, The band received a flood of fantastic reviews including; 'Flavour of the Month' and 'Ones to Watch' from BBC Introducing which resulted in extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, RTE, Radio Ulster and Radio Foyle. PORTS rose to prominence in Ireland after an exciting performance at 'Other Voices', Derry-Londonderry (when they stepped in to replace Two Door Cinema Club). After their memorable performance, they were asked to return to the Other Voices stage, this time in London’s own Wilton’s Music Hall, joined by Villagers; John Grant; SOAK and Imelda May.

PORTS spent most of 2014 in the studio recording their debut album, ‘The Devil’s A Songbird’, which was mixed by Dan Long (Local Natives, Queens of the Stone Age). In October 2015 the band released the first single, ‘Gameplay', from the album which went on to be used in the MTV teen drama 'Awkward'

2016 will be a massive year for the band with the, highly anticipated, release of their debut album scheduled for May
