"He is great to work with, easy going, incredibly reliable and just always does a great job."
A big fan of soul, funk and R&B, Marcus has a broad taste in music, and is comfortable playing most styles including hip hop, rock, pop and jazz. He has a great ear and is also a strong sight-reader. Equally at home on stage, in the studio, or in the pit, Marcus is a versatile musician who can adapt to any situation.
Marcus has worked alongside artists including MC Neat, Kele Le Roc, Shola Ama, Sweet Female Attitude, Shelley Nelson, Jimmy James, Tom Odell, Romina Johnson, members of Two Door Cinema Club, Heatwave, Incognito and Groove Armada.
"As a musical director and keyboardist to various artistes past and present that spans a period of 20 years plus, it pleases me to have met and had the pleasure of working with a whole new generation of bass players making their mark on the scene currently such as Marcus Porter.
Whatever arena he is thrown in, he totally understands musically; almost like he was there first time around.
What a fantastic easy going guy too; no stress whatsoever to work with.
I certainly look forward to doing more with this great talent."
