“Mason Porter conveys a sense of warmth. Its CSN-esque harmonies ring out, its songs carry strongly performed as a full band as much as an acoustic trio”
– John Vettese, The Key.
Philadelphia area folk-rock outfit Mason Porter will be releasing their latest album “Key to the Skyway” the first week June. The band has spent much of the last year touring in support of their 2014 release Home For The Harvest. Focused on vocal harmonies and simple acoustic arrangements, the album has drawn comparisons to the Grateful Dead’s American Beauty and Neil Young’s Harvest The song “That’s Alright By Me” received significant airplay from SirusXM station The Coffee House this past year and the album received support from the Folk DJ, Americana and AAA radio communities as well.
“The music of Mason Porter could be best described as alternative bluegrass, and while the instrumentation is acoustic, their music borrows from genres such as acid rock, jazz, and punk. In this debut recording, the eclectic trio show musical prowess that is difficult to overlook.”
Les McIntyre, Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
“Mason Porter’s songs are incredibly catchy…above anything else, Mason Porter is just plain fun.”
