GREGORY PORTER ANNOUNCES UK TOUR APRIL 2016
“The Brooklyn-based singer with the rich baritone and the ever-present Kangol hat is on a mission to revive old-school musical values… Possessed of massive vocal power offset by a rich tone and delicate control, his interpretations flit between jazz and soul, with the finesse of the former and strength of the latter in equal measure.” —MOJO
