Scott Porter is a soulful, passionate songwriter/singer from Dayton, Ohio. His music reflects the tenderness of Paul Simon, the funky soul of Stevie Wonder, and
I'm a solo musician/songwriter from Dayton, Ohio. I play guitar, bass, percussion, keyboards, drums, melodica, & whatever else I can get my hands on. My music ranges from acoustic retro-pop to funky soul with a jazz influence. I record in my (very) modest home studio. I don't use effects, loops, or samples in my music; I prefer the warm, natural sound of the instruments. In fact, a warm sound is my main goal in all aspects of performance and production. Thank you for listening!
