Willy Porter

Willy Porter released his debut CD, “The Trees Have Soul” in 1990. In 1994, he released his second independent CD entitled, “Dog Eared Dream.” The song “Angry Words” became a top-10 staple on Triple AAA radio stations around the country. This radio success established Porter as a nationally recognized artist, and he would ultimately sign with Private Music/BMG in 1995. European and American tours with Rickie Lee Jones, Tori Amos and The Cranberries followed. In 1999, he signed with San Francisco-based Six Degrees Records and released the folk-pop gem, “Falling Forward.” National tours commenced with legendary artists Paul Simon, Sting, Jeff Beck and Jethro Tull. In 2002, Porter brought seemingly disparate elements together on his eponymous self-titled disc, “Willy Porter.” In 2003 he released the solo live album “High Wire Live.”. Porters’ combined experience at both major and independent record labels ultimately fueled the drive to release a wider variety of music on a more frequent basis, and led Porter to start his own imprint, Weasel Records in December 2005. His latest release, “Available Light” features Porter at the peak of his powers as a guitarist, singer, songwriter & recording artist. Porter lives in Milwaukee, WI and is married with two children.
