Tulsa, Oklahoma (July 6, 2018) – On a humid Friday night in July, the Mercury Lounge in Tulsa, OK was a hub of conversation, cold drinks and the music of Kendra and Cole Michael Porter, otherwise known as Porter Union. The duo is quickly becoming a fan favorite for their modern take on the classic country male/female duos of decades past. Having missed Porter Union’s last sold-out show at the Mercury Lounge, I was eager to hear them live for the first time.
Kendra and Cole’s voices are a perfect compliment to each other whether singing one of their own original songs, such as “Don’t You Know” or covering Merle Haggard’s “Are the Good Times Really Over”. Although billed as an acoustic show, the addition of Tyler Giles- Roberson on pedal steel and Justin Boswell on stand-up bass rounded out the duo nicely. If you haven’t heard of this incredibly talented duo, check out their self-titled debut album or catch them on the road this summer.
