Porter Lori

Porter Lori blurs many lines. His style can be described simply: "one boot on the sidewalk, the other on a long dirt road.” A bi-racial only child of a French-Croatian single-mother (a writer/activist who worked as a cocktail waitress to support herself and Porter) and an African-American father (a married cowboy, businessman and politician). His mother listened almost exclusively to Motown but in the evenings (while she would clean offices), Porter would sit in the car and listen to the radio, falling asleep and absorbing everything from The Police to Steve Miller Band. Conversely, seeds of country and bluegrass were planted during visits with his father and aunt in Kentucky, where he learned about life’s simpler side. As a teen, Porter dropped out of a violent high school and decided it was time to strike out on his own. He dove head first into his love of hip-hop, skateboarding, and graffiti. Those years were filled with travel, music and pure exploration. His songs speak honestly. His story is as distinguished as his voice - and as diverse as the world that created him.
