Willy Porter etc December 20 2015
if you are at this page, I doubt that you are a stranger to Mr. Porter. Singer Carmen Nickerson and guitarist David Goodrich will accompany him.
"I found Willy on iTunes six years ago. Went to see him live and joined the converted."
Al Kooper (Bob Dylan/Blood, Sweat & Tears)
""Bank" is Porter at the top of his game..."
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Willy Porter is perhaps best known as a down tuned six string wonder, but as a singer and a writer, and as a showman, he merits equal regard."
"Thank goodness he doesn't play the flute." Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull
"Porter is a dazzling acoustic guitarist with a moody baritone..." The Washington Post
"Willy plays rhythms that make me want to crawl inside his guitar and sleep there forever."
"Willy Porter captures the street corner ethic of acoustic performance perfectly." The Village Voice
"Porter accentuates well - rendered tales with spit - fire - percussive acoustic guitar strumming and fiery color - chord picking." Billboard
"If you have never heard of this guy before, you are in for the musical discovery for a lifetime..." and "...he can still play guitar perhaps greater than anyone else on the planet."
Listen To This
"Porter plays intelligent, groove heavy folk with hearty abandon" Santa Fe New Mexican
"With his exquisite, tranquil guitar work, Willy Porter could easily astonish an audience without singing one note. His ability to engage the audience with his personality and intellect raises Porter from the level of guitar wonk into the realm of masterful performer." Earvolution
"An acoustic picker with the Olympian speed of Leo Kottke bolstered by rootsy vocals and twisting, offbeat lyrics that evoked John Hiatt..." Boston Globe
Though David "Goody" Goodrich is known to many as a producer and accompanist for the likes of roots legend Chris Smither, new-wave Americana craftsmen Peter Mulvey and Jeffrey Foucault, and folk sensation Redbird, he continues to hone a sound all his own. His music has been adapted for use in feature and documentary films, museum exhibits, and even video games. Fans of Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, and Ry Cooder will find his CD DUST OF MANY HORSES the perfect companion.
