JODY PORTER HITS THE NORTHEAST WITH CLOSE TO THE SUN

Fountains of Wayne guitarist Jody Porter released his solo debut Close To The Sun via Engine Room Recordings in May and will be hitting the road next month for a few select Northeast dates. Porter and his band will be at Rockwood Stage 2 in NYC on Aug 13, Lizard Lounge in Boston on Aug 14 & North Star Bar in Philly on Aug 20.

MAGNET recently posted a free mp3 of “Aurora” and said of Close To The Sun:
“Of course, it’s heavily guitar driven and very clean, giving the music an almost U2-esque sound, without all the pretension. Porter’s vocals are wonderful and flow so well with the music. First single ‘Aurora’ is a bluesy pop number with some genuine emotion behind it.”
