British singer and songwriter Aaron Porter is one of the UK’s brightest new talents. With just a couple of tracks out Aaron is already being heralded by tastemakers as one to watch for his sensitive but direct lyricism and arresting vocals.
When it comes to making an impact as a new artist, challenging stereotypes of masculinity, gender conformity and what it means to be queer have made rising future-pop-prince Aaron Porter an instant standout.
A former BRIT School attendee of musical theatre, Porter’s flair for the arts and theatricality blends effortlessly with his confidence and soulful vocal ability, not to mention having been raised on Whitney Houston and Toni Braxton, who he describes as his ‘powerhouse mummas’.
“They really did help shape my love of music as their albums came at certain points in my life when I really needed it. I used to really indulge in the drama of it! If something big happened in my life, something sad for example, I would have Toni on full volume and I’d be running around my room crying! So embarrassing, but when I realized I could find a true release through music, nothing could stop me.”
