Gregory Porter is an American jazz and soul singer, songwriter and actor from LA, now living in Brooklyn. He has received two Grammy nominations, one for his debut album, Water, released in 2010 by Harlem-based label Motéma Music and a second for his sophomore release, Be Good. Reviewing his star-making performance at this summer’s Newport Jazz Festival, NPR claims, “Here’s the next great male jazz singer. The forthcoming Liquid Spirit is great, but he’s even better live, surrounded with a long-running band that knows what he’s after and enables it splendidly. As he might say, clap your hands now.”
