ABOUT THE ARTIST
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PctjXCksVao

Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die hard fans for more than two decades. Willy blurs the line between indie-folk and rock with his searing signature finger-picking guitar sound, absorbing lyrics, and playful, high-energy live performance style. He has shared world stages with music icons Jeff Beck, Tori Amos, and Paul Simon, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music that resonates long after the last guitar chord fades.

From the release of his breakthrough album, 1994s Dog Eared Dream, to the launch of his own record label, Weasel Records, in 2005, Willy is an artist dedicated to delivering high-test, original musical experiences. His 2015 album, Human Kindness, featured the songs Train and Chippewa Boots, performed live on NPRs A Prairie Home Companion by Willy and his singing/songwriting partner, Carmen Nickerson. The pair teamed up again in 2016 to make Bonfire to Ash, a record of co-writes produced by Grammy award-winner Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke).

Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, his songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven events--equal parts grit, soul, and muscle--that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Willys voice blends and fuses with his galvanizing fret work.

Whether in the studio or on stage, Willy Porter gifts listeners with an unforgettable ride, embodying the very best of what live music has to offer.

ALSO FEATURING
JAKE MACK

Jake Mack is a career musician and recording artist based in the suburbs of Chicago. Influenced by artists like Wilco, Jason Isbell, The Rolling Stones, and Tom Petty, he draws from these stylings with a focus on crafting songs that grab the listener with clever hooks, but house a deeper meaning behind the lyrics and tone of the song. Playing 200 shows annually, he brings veteran musicianship and a musical maturity to every stage.
