  • ALISAN PORTER

    ALISAN PORTER

    Pop Vocal

    A powerhouse siren with impressive writing chops to match her towering vocals, it’s no surprise Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Alisan Porter could sing with perfect pitch at nine-months-old. Born to a Broadway singer mom and rocker dad, she went from wowing America on Star Search at the age of five to starring in the John Hughes 1991 classic Curly Sue. Post-high school, she logged time on Broadway, starring in the first production of Footloose and revival of A Chorus Line. She fronted The Canyons and released two solo albums, namely 2009’s Alisan Porter and Who We Are in 2014.

    During a 2016 respite from music, a friend secretly submitted her to NBC’s The Voice. Emerging triumphantly, she made history on the show, winning Season 10 and becoming the first victor for a female coach repping “Team Christina Aguilera.” Staunchly committed to a personal vision, she turned down a major label contract in order to follow her heart as an independent artist. Exercising the limits of her robust voice, she conjured a style steeped in booming gospel, soulful blues, and rock ‘n’ roll energy. Now, the first single “Deep Water” introduces Alisan’s next phase with her show-stopping vocals on full display.

    In the Fall 2018, Ms. Porter will join fellow The Voice winner's in-residence for THE VOICE: NEON DREAMS coming to The Voice Theater at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. 

    Her new independent EP I Come In Pieces was release to critical praise in Nov 2017. The album is avail on iTunes and Amazon.

His autobiographical show HAM: A Musical Memoir played off Broadway and in Los Angeles, and won LA’s prestigious Ovation Award for Best Musical, also awarding him as Best Actor, and Best Musical Direction for Todd Schroeder. It was filmed for television and can be seen on all prominent streaming channels.

    Sam has toured extensively in concert and has played to sold-out audiences everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Boston Pops. He has appeared at The White House, on numerous television specials and live productions, and has been a guest artist on virtually every talk show, his favorite in an historic time, when he performed a stirring “You’ll Never Walk Alone” on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW in the week following September 11th. Sam was a regular on the CBS sitcom, THE CLASS, winning the People’s Choice Award, and has guest starred on numerous series. He hosted his own segment on EXTRA called “Six Degrees of Sam Harris.”
