TVD Radar: The Podcast with Evan Toth, Episode 46: Gregory Porter

Gregory Porter embodies the best of what a popular singer should be: he’s a suave and stylish songbird with the heart of a poet, painting the lyrics he’s reciting onto his canvas while letting his soul lead the way. With six albums under his belt, he’s had the opportunity to do a little bit of everything, and do it well: from traditional interpretations from the Great American Songbook to more contemporary fare. If that weren’t enough, he’s also a talented songwriter.

Like all of us, Mr. Porter is ready to get the needle back in the groove that his career was in prior to the pandemic which included five Grammy nominations and two wins. In fact, Gregory won two Grammys in the same category, in the same year for two different albums. Has anyone ever done that before?

Porter is back on the road. Our New York City area listeners have one treasured opportunity to catch him in our region at the beautiful New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, September 21st before he jets off to the UK and Europe in November.

So, join us as we discuss his latest work, our mutual affinity for Nat “King” Cole, whether, or not, he’s a vinyl disciple, and hear some secrets about his creative process. You’ll find him incredibly intelligent, insightful, and passionate about his work, and hopefully you’ll walk away feeling lucky that we have a vocalist as skilled as Porter is in our modern midst. I know I do.
