Gregory Porter
w/ Ben Williams
10.24.13

At the start of 2010, the buzz about Los Angeles-born and now Brooklyn-based jazz/soul vocalist Gregory Porter was a strong, steady murmur, fueled by a growing crowd of fans who’d caught his performance in the Tony and Drama Desk Award-nominated Broadway hit, It Ain’t Nothin’ but the Blues, or his weekly stints at the Harlem club, St. Nick’s Pub.

By the end of 2012, with his second CD, Be Good, having earned a Grammy®- nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance, the buzz had built to a roar, with the incredible accolades showered on Porter showing no sign of decreasing either in volume or enthusiasm. As the year drew to a close, Porter’s music topped an extraordinary number of “Best of 2012” lists in the US and the UK, including NPR’s “Best Music of 2012” and “100 Favorite Songs of 2012”; iTunes “Jazz Album of the Year”; and Soul Train’s “Top 10 Albums of 2012”. Be Good was also named Soul Tracks’ “Album of the Year.”

Based on the groundwork laid by the volume of positive critical and public response to his ‘Best Jazz Vocal’ Grammy®-nominated debut CD, Water (2010), Be Good met out of the box success. The track “Real Good Hands” was selected by iTunes as its Single of the Week, propelling the track to the #1 position on iTunes jazz chart for several weeks, and sending it soaring into the Top 100 overall album chart the first week of release. Another track from the album, “On My Way to Harlem” was selected by the Starbucks Digital Network as its Pick of the Week. (more at gregoryporter.com)
