TNAG Session: Willy Porter

Our latest TNAG Session and the last at our old Showroom was filmed with the phenomenal Willy Porter. Originally from Mequon, Wisconsin Porter's professional career as a musician spans over two decades, 11 albums and multiple continents.
His journey has been defined by an inquisitive love for humanity and the language that describes what we all hold to be true. Porter’s songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven grit, soul, silence and muscle– at times electrifying, dynamic, and unique in the way that Porter’s voice blends and fuses with his fret work.
A largely self-taught musician, Porter began treating audiences to his brand of guitar playing and wry storytelling in the late ‘80’s while living in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1990, he released his first full-length independent album, The Trees Have Soul, and the touring life has flowed steadily ever since.

We really enjoyed Willy's visit and it made from a very special performance and interview. We hope you enjoy it!
