Willy Porter - Cool Water



Full Track on imeem. <-- What's this?

I first saw Willy Porter in the mid-90's when he opened for Tori Amos. He did a one man opening act and I was so impressed I bought his CD in the lobby on my way out. Cool Water, off his debut album Dog Eared Dream, is a great track that shows his songwriting skills.

Porter was originally a viola player (you can hear lots of sting sections in his songs) who put down the bow and grabbed a pick after hearing Leo Kottke's album 6 & 12 String Guitar.

The music reminds me of Dave Matthews Band, especially with the string flavoring...very cool!
