A new sound, A new face
Portia (Seattle, WA) is here to change the face of Pop/R&B Music. This phenomenal vocalist has a commercial sound that is instantly recognizable, and a style that is a seamless fusion of R&B, Pop, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop music. Her voice is as distinctive as her look; this 6’1” model “woos” her listeners with unique and edgy song concepts, jazzy vocal tricks, and complex vocal harmonies. Portia has been writing songs since 12, and her current songwriting talent is nothing less than incredible.
Although Portia is still in search of a major record deal, her skills have been positively acknowledged by Vanessa Brown (Producer of Showtime at the Apollo), major industry producer Kyle West (who has made music for Donnell Jones, LL Cool J, Tevin Campbell, etc…), and Rich Brown (Director of Seattle’s leading Top 30 Radio Station, X104.5fm).
She is currently working on her first independent album with Seattle’s top requested Music Producer, Illoquint due to release Fall 2009. She is also featured several times on his upcoming album “First Born”, and on his 2nd debut single “Radio” dropping September 2007! Portia is recently featured on various albums throughout the North West, including songs with Neema (Universal Records Distribution), Young Soprano, and Grynch.
Portia is what this music industry has been waiting for! Influenced by some of the hottest and most eccentric artists of today (Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Zap Mama), this young woman has an addictive sound that cannot be replicated. Her signature voice, her style, her look, will never cease to turn heads, perk ears, and captivate minds. Be on the lookout, while Portia brings the art of style into the commercial world of Pop Music!!!
