ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"THE STORY OF PORTER"
or,"A long journey in a circle."

I grew up an ex-pat in Southern France, singing from birth. I always knew I wanted to be a musician, but when it came time to leave high school I thought I'd go to a nice Ivy league college, study something completely quirky and unrelated and THEN I do music. I wasn't able to escape my love for long, and ended up majoring in what turned out to be the only thing that interested me at Brown University: music.

When I graduated in '05, I had a premature mid-life crisis and decided I needed to backpack through the Pacific Rim to find out what my next step should be.

For 4 months I scoured Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii searching for "myself". Strictly speaking, I didn't find her in any of those distant places. However, the trip made me realize that the only thing I missed being thousands of miles from home wasn't a warm bed, clean clothes, or a decent meal, but MY PIANO. Clarity!

For the first time in my life, it seemed like the right moment to pursue my passion.

Since then, I've been touring around the Northeast, I released my first self-produced CD, and Ive been writing more and more material.

One of the most original new albums I have ever heard. Her words are thoughtful and clear. Love it.
