The Portsiders are four old friends living in the Pacific Northwest, making Americana music that speaks more to pine trees and lakes than prarie land and dust. Melding folk, jazz, country, and blugrass elements with just a dash of the alternative flavor that put Seattle on Americas musical map, these fine gentlemen weave tapestries of hope, loss, despair and triumph for fans of bands like the Avett Brothers, the Decemberists, and Of Monsters and Men.
