Overview

International best-selling artist Gregory Porter’s music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, solidifying his standing as his generation's most soulful jazz singer-songwriter. In his remarkable career, Porter has time and again demonstrated his innate ability to transcend genre and connect with audiences from all walks of life.

The two-time Grammy-winning vocalist’s stunning fifth studio album Nat “King” Cole & Me is a heartfelt tribute to the legendary singer, pianist, and Capitol recording artist who influenced Porter’s life and music. The album hit number 3 on the Official UK Album Chart, landing him his highest ever chart position and biggest-selling first week. Nat “King” Cole & Me is the follow-up to Porter’s GRAMMY-winning albums Liquid Spirit (2013) and Take Me to the Alley (2016), which broke records by becoming the first jazz album to break into the top 5 for over a decade.

“Porter thrives using a unique style, an ever-changing vocal magnitude you simply have to hear to appreciate.”
- Pitchfork

“He possesses a soulful, R&B-meets-jazz voice, yet there is an Everyman aura about him”
- Times

“The voice of the 21st Century”
- Daily Star
