Willy Porter & Carmen Nickerson
Porter Nickerson are a duo that embody the best of what live music has to offer: heart, grit, and the kind of raw musicianship that transforms listeners into long-time fans. Willy Porters searing finger-picking guitar style deftly blends with Carmen Nickersons lush vocals to create an unforgettable sound that resonates long after the last chord fades.
A virtuoso guitarist, Porter has more than ten albums to his catalogue including Dog Eared Dream (1994) which yielded the top 10 AAA single, Angry Words. He has shared the stage with rock and pop luminaries such as Jeff Beck, Sting, Paul Simon, Tori Amos and Jethro Tull. Nickerson is an accomplished Jazz, R&B, and Rock vocalist from the Midwest who has also contributed her talents to studio and voice-over work in L.A. The pair met following the release of Porters 2010 album How to Rob a Bank and, finding their musical sensibilities a quick match, began collaborating soon after. The result has been a rich experience of performing and writing: Nickersons vocals feature on the yearning Iowa Sky from Porters 2013 EP Cheeseburgers and Gasoline and on the song This Train from 2015s Human Kindness. In 2016 the pair were featured music guests on NPRs A Prairie Home Companion, performing on one of Garrison Keillors last broadcasts. With more than five years of stage and studio work under their belts, both Porter and Nickerson were excited to fuse their singular talents on a new album of original co-writes: Bonfire to Ash (2016), produced by Grammy winning producer Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke) and featuring Bassist Zev Katz and Drummer/Producer Ben Wittman.
