Production Notes

Lead by the legendary Mohawk blues man Murray Porter, this band of seasoned musicians gains newaudiences every time they perform their soulful blues.

Murray Porter: lead vocals, keyboard Helene Duguay: harmonies, bass Rick Boulter: guitar Darren Harry: drums

JUNO Award-winning Murray Porter may have a blues soul to the core, but he also grew up on rock and roll, R & B and country music and his recent album Stand Up! reflects these early musical influences. This year, he was nominated for the `Blues With A Feeling’ award for Lifetime Achievement from the Maple Blues Awards, Canada’s national blues awards. Porter’s love of performing comes across clear and strong. He has been compared to Dr. John, Joe Cocker and even Elton John! He captivates audiences wherever he performs and makes new fans that never leave his show disappointed. He’s a proud Mohawk man from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in southern Ontario, who now lives on Squamish Nation unceded territory in North Vancouver, BC. “A master bluesman” (Robbie Robertson).
