Because Songs Matter


In some circles it’s said that there are people all over the southeast that would follow Mr. Chris Porter into hell. I’ve never met Chris nor his bandmate Helen Gassenheimer so I can’t speak to that. I do know that Porter and Co. have no shortage of followers on Facebook and Twitter and I suppose, to some, social media is the epitome of hell. Personally, I’ve followed Chris from his previous band, The Back Row Baptist, to his new, Some Dark Holler, and I am very proud to have been approached by This Is American Music about offering up this stream. I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do:

If you like what you hear. Buy it!

    Thanks for streaming this! I’ve been into them since CXCW!

    Quick tip, if you meant to link to This is American Music in the entry (“Buy It!”) it’s not there.

    These guys are awesome and deserve some more coverage/publicity, I’ve been a fan since the backrow baptists (I sent the 4th of July song to my buddy in Holland and he said him and his friends loved it) and have enjoyed everything so far so keep up the good work yall! And come through NC sometime! (Preferably Chapel Hill/Carrboro! – if you ever do I got you covered on a nice place to stay!) Keep on keepin on, and thanks so much for what you do we all really appreciate it….
