George Porter Jr. Joins the PreSonus Artist Roster!

December 29,2011

George Porter Jr. paid us a visit at PreSonus HQ in Baton Rouge recently. Now that the ink is dry on the contract, we can announce that he’s officially on-board as a PreSonus Artist!

For those out of the loop, George cut his teeth as the bassist for funk progenitors The Meters back in the mid-60′s, has stayed in the pocket for nigh on 45 years, and has remained in demand as a session musican for guys like—oh, I don’t know, pick one. How about PAUL MCCARTNEY.

Other artists copypasted from his website’s bio page include Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, and Taj Mahal. The man’s no joke.

We are lucky to have him. After a round of handshakes and high-fives, we sent George home with a FireStudio Project so he could record his 64th birthday show with his current project, The Runnin’ Pardners,  in New Orleans on Dec. 26. While PreSonus gear may always seem like a cool birthday present, having George in our corner is really the better end of the deal. :)

    What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious know-how about unpredicted feelings.
