Gregory Porter – Intimate Shows in September


Gregory Porter is coming to Australia with his band this September to perform two very special and intimate shows in support of his critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Take Me To The Alley released on the iconic Blue Note record label.

The Grammy winning jazz, soul, and gospel singer will be performing at The Basement in Sydney on Wednesday September 28 and The Croxton in Melbourne on Friday September 30.

Take Me To the Alley, the much-anticipated follow-up to Porter’s sensational 2013 Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit, is the current No.1 album on the Billboard Jazz Album Chart and went No.1 on Apple Music Jazz Album Charts across 6 continents. The opening track ‘Holding On’ is a version of the song Porter co-wrote and recorded with U.K. electronica act Disclosure, a collaboration which has opened up Porter’s music to a new audience not necessarily familiar with the jazz genre.

Gregory Porter’s powerful voice and extraordinary talent continues to earn him accolades and opportunities across the globe including a slot on the main stage – the Pyramid Stage- at the upcoming Glastonbury Festival on Sunday June 26. Gregory Porter won a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal album for Liquid Spirit (2013) which sold a million copies worldwide, and has performed with legendary artists including Van Morrison and Stevie Wonder. Porter recently led a tribute to Prince on the Later…with Jools Holland program in April 2016 and performed ‘What a Wonderful World’ for David Attenborough’s 90th birthday in May 2016.
