ABOUT

Frank Porter is an award-winning professional, independent songwriter, musician and band leader with 30 plus years of experience. In October of 2012 on his own he released an all-acoustic CD titled, “Who I Am.” And in February he signed a one year marketing and distribution deal with Tate Music Group for his CD, “Who I Am.” It was released by Tate on August 6th, 2013 and is doing pretty good for a new artist. We're all pleased about this of course.

Frank (with his band, or acoustically) has opened for Taylor Hicks and also played at places like John and Peters in New Hope, PA; Warmdaddy’s, The Fringe Festival and World Café Live in Philadelphia, PA; Crocodile Rock in Allentown, PA; and Love Park (Philadelphia), Cooper River Park (Pennsauken, NJ), and CBGB’s in New York City. He is known in local Independent Music scenes, especially in The Lehigh Valley and West Chester, PA where he frequently plays. He was featured on the television show, “Inside Music Today,” in December, 2012 performing a song from his new album/CD, “Who I Am.” In March of 2014 he was featured in Out On The Town Magazine. .ootonline/issues/3604/#/26/zoomed

The above short list is just some of Frank’s achievements along his path in the business of music, although it is an art first and foremost to Frank. He writes and performs varied acoustic original songs, upbeat and unique instrumentals, as well as select cover songs. You will find blues, folk, rock and probably some other influences in Frank’s music.
