Special guests – PORT CITIES
The spellbinding chemistry of Port Cities is built on masterful songwriting, skillfully crafted arrangements, and the powerful electricity between the three voices at its helm. The band surfaced as a result of genuine connection and a profound shared belief in the music they make together it's soulful and vibrant — commanding, organic pop melodies buoyed by stunning three-part harmonies. Coupled with their engaging camaraderie onstage and off, Port Cities have become a not-to-be-missed live experience.
The band worked with mentor and friend Gordie Sampson (Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rhymes, Rascal Flats), writing and recording their staggering debut—a multi-layered pop opus dense with biting guitar, swells of synth, and irresistible beats. While the production is spirited and contemporary, it's easy to hear the long-standing tradition of song craft and folk music behind each radiant chorus, dazzling hook, and driving instrumentation.
Throughout the entire record and at every show —whether it be in aa raw crash of rock n' roll or a devastating, gentle acoustic number—the strength of Port Cities lies clearly in the riveting force of Stone,, Mackinnon, and Guthro's passionate voices.
