Jamie Porter has covered most of the UK in his quest to follow his love of music influences by the likes Gary Moore, Ritchie Sambora, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Black Crowes, Thunder, Dan Baird, The Eagles and many more.
2014 also saw Jamie look for musicians to take his songs out live. Jamie was joined by experienced drummer/musician Geraint Vernon early in 2014 and rehearsals followed soon after. They were joined by Jamie’s son Dan on bass and shortly after Paul Harrison on guitar and b/vocals. A couple of short warmup shows were done by the band over 2014 at Conwy Beer Festival and Conwy’s Prom Xtra Festival in August. Late 2014/ early 2015 has seen the band joined by a new bass player Darren Sidell and Dan has now moved over to keyboard duties.
2015 saw the release of a single called ‘Save Me’ which has had airplay on independent radio stations across the UK. A number of live shows at local music festivals and charity events then followed over the course of the year with Jamie writing and recording material for a new album made up of songs already in the live set and brand new material. A new album is on the horizon this year and the continued development/promotion of the band in the live music scene throughout the UK and beyond.
