Sub Pop welcomes Seattle MC Porter Ray to the roster, who’ll release his label debut in 2015.
Porter Ray has earned praise from outlets in Seattle for his three self-released efforts — BLK GLD LP (May 2013); WHT GLD and RSE GLD EP’s (October 2013) — and his live performances. The MC caught the attention of Ishmael Butler, Shabazz Palaces founder and member of Sub Pop’s A&R team, who brought Ray to the label.
On a related note, Porter Ray will support labelmates Shabazz Palaces tonight, Friday, August 1st with a hometown show at Neumos.
