Gregory Porter at Westonbirt Arboretum

About Gregory Porter

Gregory has become known as the UK’s favourite contemporary American jazz artist. His last five albums have all reached the Top 10, with ‘Take Me To The Alley’ (2016), ‘Nat King Cole & Me’ (2017) and ‘All Rise’ (2020) hitting the Top 5. A double Grammy-winner (Best Jazz Vocal Album for ‘Liquid Spirit’ (2014) and Best Jazz Vocal Album for ‘Take Me To The Alley’) and seven-time Grammy nominee, the singer and songwriter has amassed cumulative streams of 1.6 billion and counting. 

Since breaking through almost a decade ago with ‘Liquid Spirit’, Gregory has become a beloved part of the British cultural firmament. The Californian cat-in-the-hat has played at numerous festivals, including Glastonbury (where he wowed the Pyramid Stage) and Radio 2’s Live in Hyde Park. He performed multiple times for the late HM Queen Elizabeth II, most recently as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, and has also appeared before HM King Charles III.
