Porter, who is currently nominated for a Grammy-award in the category of Best traditional R&B performance with his tune Real Good Hands, is set to make his first appearance in Finland at April Jazz 2013.
The American singer has been on a steady climb ever since the launch of his debut album Water in 2010, which also landed him a Grammy-nomination. Porter’s second album Be Good was released on Valentine’s Day 2012, receiving much praise from critics for the music and the unique style of vocals.
