Whether you love or hate Eminem’s “Untouchable” is irrelevant when speaking on Denaun Porter a.k.a. Mr. Porter’s virtuosic skill set in the studio.
For Christmas 2017, the Detroit-bred maestro drops a pair of holiday classics in “Rudolph” and “The Christmas Song”
“I grew up hearing Christmas music throughout the year, not just at Christmas time,” he says of age-old holiday wonder. “I always loved the nostalgia of the songs, the feelings they bring back, the memories of family and friends gathering. My family encouraged me to share my own spin on a couple of the classics with you. My influences have always included Marvin Gaye, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Stevie Wonder and Musiq Soulchild and you won’t surprised to hear a little of that here. Thank you for listening and allowing me to now be a part of your Christmas memories.”
When it comes to “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” he had a similar nostalgic feeling.
“My sister used to love the Temptations version. That’s my main memory of the song besides the old ‘Rudolph” movie. It is my hope that you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed recording it,” he says.
