Porter Union with Better Than Nothin'
Porter Union, led by husband and wife, Cole Michael Porter and Kendra Porter, is the result of the two old souls spending the better part of the last decade traveling the country together to play their music everywhere from the dive bars and honky tonks to festivals and theaters. When you hear the story of Cole and Kendra meeting in a hometown bar, falling in love while writing and playing together, it sounds like fairy tale built by corporate music row. Luckily, that’s where the comparison stops - you won’t find overproduced, cliche filled songs here. Their honest approach to songwriting combines raw emotional themes with a traditional country sound to bring the listener into the story. It’s no surprise they’ve shared a stage with a variety of notable artists including many of their own heroes.
AFTER SPENDING MOST OF HIS 20'S ON THE ROAD AS A DRUMMER FOR ARTISTS SUCH AS DAVID ALLAN COE, ONWARD, ETC., MARK CHAPMAN BAND, THE WASTED WAYS AND COUNTLESS OTHERS, JAKE STRINGER DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO GO HIS OWN WAY. TIME TO TAKE THE MUSIC HE HAD BEEN HEARING AND DREAMING UP IN HIS HEAD, AND MAKE IT TANGIBLE. OVER THE NEXT YEAR, HE AND STEEL GUITARIST AND LONGTIME FRIEND ZACH MOURNING PUT TOGETHER A CAST OF BRILLIANT MUSICIANS AND FRIENDS TO FORM WHAT WOULD BE KNOWN AS, "BETTER THAN NOTHIN'"
