Gregory Porter Don’t Forget Your Music is an inspirational story of a unique musical talent. Told through candid interviews, and exclusive access-all-areas coverage, the story traces the Grammy-award winner’s journey to international fame.
There is no doubt Porter is special, his story is particularly poignant in the current American zeitgeist, yet Porter transcends to represent the next generation in the American Jazz story.
The camera loves Porter; he is a mountain of a man, softly spoken who strikes a sartorial presence in an eclectic mix of tailored suits, waistcoats and his now famous Jazz hat.
The documentary contains interviews and contributions from Porter’s family, music industry figures and some of the world’s most influential musicians.
In a time when the world and media is obsessed with making instant stars through reality TV and social media, this film shows that at the heart of success must be raw talent and self-belief.
“You have to experience life before you sing it”.
– Gregory Porter
