Known for his warm baritone vocals, Gregory Porter rose to acclaim in the 2010s with his earthy, cross-pollinated brand of jazz, soul, and gospel. A gifted singer of standards as well as more contemporary soul material, Porter has earned favorable comparisons to his idols Nat King Cole, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder. He announced his arrival by picking up a Grammy nomination for his 2010 debut, Water. After signing to Blue Note, he gained even wider notice for his third album, 2013’s Liquid Spirit, which hit number two on the jazz charts, and won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Although his original songs are his main focus, Porter often returns to his roots, such as on his 2017 tribute album Nat King Cole & Me.
Ledisi is a 12x Grammy-nominated vocal powerhouse who has wowed fans ever since she came onto the Bay area music scene. Over the past twenty years, she has earned a place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her generation. Ledisi is a favorite of the Obamas and has performed nine times at the White House. Her fans include icons, legends and current chart-toppers like the late-Prince, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and so many more. She has headlined two national sold-out tours, performed alongside Richie Sambora, Dave Matthews, Kelly Clarkson, Jill Scott, Maxwell as well as jazz greats like Herbie Hancock. Most recently she recorded on a project duetting with late Miles Davis. Ledisi has appeared on nationally recognized talk shows like Good Morning America, The David Letterman Show, The Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, HARRY and VH-1’s “Diva’s Live” just to name a few. In 2015 she landed a role in the Oscar-nominated movie, Selma, portraying Mahalia Jackson and had a notable performance in Gabourey Sidibe’s Shatterbox Anthology film, “The Tale Of Four”. In 2017, Ledisi released her ninth Grammy nominated studio album, “Let Love Rule”, which features John Legend, Kirk Franklin, and B.J. The Chicago Kid among others. The album received three GRAMMY nominations in the “Best R&B Album,” “Best R&B Performance” (High), and “Best Traditional R&B Performance” (All The Way) categories. Ledisi is not only a singer and actress, she’s an author, playwright, film producer and now CEO of her own record label Chinweya Entertainment from which she will launch several projects in the near future.
