We’ve been quietly following the career, and rich baritone, of jazz vocalist Gregory Porter for some time now. So you can imagine our delight at getting to premiere his latest video “Hey Laura” from his third album Liquid Spirit(out now).
“Hey Laura” tells a familiar tale of love long lost and a hopeful heart that can’t accept that the object of his affection has moved on.
A former college football player, Porter is by far one of the most exciting singers of the moment. Jazzthing Magazine calls him the “most beautiful voice in jazz.” In his booming tone you can hear a Bill Withers, a Lou Rawls, even Marvin Gaye. We hope you’ll be just as thrilled as we are. Watch “Hey Laura” and tell us what you think.
