With her first new music since 2015 MacKenzie Porter presents a pair of hook-laden tracks that are timely and timeless.
Scheduled for release on November 30th on Big Loud Records, ‘About You’ and ‘Drive Thru’ showcase MacKenzie's substantial chops as a vocalist and songwriter. Produced by Joey Moi, Porter’s latest songs find her treading the line effortlessly between modern and traditional country and displaying a depth of musical experience and emotional range as a performer that can only be accumulated by someone who first took to the stage as a youngster. Growing up in Alberta on her family’s working ranch near Medicine Hat, Porter came by her country bona fides honestly. “At my house somebody was always singing at the top of their lungs 24/7, and my father and grandfather always played country radio while we worked. So that’s how I fell in love with country music.” After relocating to Vancouver she fell in love with songwriting & recording her own material. In 2013 released her self-titled debut album. Over the next 3 years she garnered nominations for prestigious Canadian music awards including the 2015 JUNO for Country Album of the Year and the CCMA Award for Female Artist of the Year three years running. In 2016, Porter was featured on Chris Lanes Circles from his Top 10 US Country record, Girl Troubles. Since moving to Nashville in 2014 Porter has continued to develop as a songwriter w/ Nicolle Galyon, Craig Wiseman, Natalie Hemby, Tommy English & others.
