The New York Times calls him «a Jazz singer of thrilling presence, a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement, and soaring uplift.» With his fifth GRAMMY Awards nomination in hand just this morning, Gregory Porter is one of the most celebrated modern jazz singers — but also one of the genre's rare crossover artists this decade.

Porter and his rafter-raising baritone are as at home on stage at Buckingham Palace as a music festival in Ibiza and his 2014 GRAMMY Award-winning album Liquid Spirit and his duet with electronic music duo Disclosure both appeared on the British charts this year.

He was praised on his latest album, Take Me To The Alley, for «thriv[ing] using a unique style, an ever-changing vocal magnitude you simply have to hear to appreciate. He sings with conviction, calmly drawing you in, like having a long chat with an old friend.»

Whether you've been following his career from his first album or are a new fan, you're not going to want to miss this incredible opportunity to see Gregory Porter live. We happen to think that tickets to take in some live jazz also makes the perfect holiday gift for your loved ones!
