Willy Porter

Willy Porter is perhaps best known as a down tuned six string wonder,
but as a singer and a writer, and as a showman, he merits equal regard."


"Thank goodness he doesn't play the flute."
Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull

With lyrically rich and musically adventurous songs, Willy Porter delivers guitar-driven rock and beyond to the new acoustic frontier. He’ll perform with singer Carmen Nickerson, who shares vocals and writing credits on his latest CD, “Cheeseburgers & Gasoline,” released last November. A professional vocalist and studio voice talent, Carmen Nickerson has endeared herself to audiences across age and musical genre.

Porter’s live shows combine his guitar playing, songwriting and on-stage improvisational skills as a storyteller, performance artist and comedian.

Porter offers a rich blend of salt and sugar with tracks that move easily from rough-hewn electric edges into soulful irony with equal aplomb. Jeff Giles of Popdose.com says, “It's another solid entry in a discography full of them, and one of the smarter, more durable albums of grown-up music we're likely to get this year.”

The Washington Post wrote that “Porter is a dazzling acoustic guitarist with a moody baritone.”

Having toured with artists as diverse as Jeff Beck and Tori Amos, Porter is a practiced performer with a portfolio of songs that span a wide range of styles. The audience will hear blues, post-bluegrass country, groove-laden folk and the influences of Woody Guthrie in Porter’s music.
