If you need another flat-top guitar hero, look no further than Willy Porter, a blindingly fleet and maddeningly nimble player.
An acoustic picker with the Olympian speed of Leo Kottke bolstered by rootsy vocals and twisting, offbeat lyrics that evoked John Hiatt.
Singer-songwriter Willy Porter’s musical career spans more than two decades and 11 albums. He honed his chops the natural way, busking across Europe and playing every little coffee house and dive bar on both sides of the Mississippi. Porter’s songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are full of guitar-driven grit, soul, silence, and muscle—at times electrifying and dynamic, and always unique in the way that his voice blends with his fret work.
His 13th album, The Ravine, is set for release in the fall.
