About David Porteous

David Porteous is a Canadian solo singer/songwriter, music producer, filmmaker and multi-instrumentalist who currently resides in Toronto, Canada.

To say music is his life is an understatement. Now 31-years-old, David began writing music at age 11, had his first radio play on CBC Radio 2 at the age of 14, and has since created 31 solo music releases.

David's latest album, appropriatlely titled 31, was recorded in his bedroom. "I began recording music when I was around 15-years-old, and I quickly learned how liberating recording music at home feels. I decided to record 31 in my bedroom to relive that experience" said David. The artwork features a photo of David taken by his mom, of him holding a guitar when he was three years old. The album artwork features a photo of David taken by his mother when he was 3-years-old.

Four songs from the album 31 are featured in the new film Boy Meets Girl, directed by Eric Schaeffer. Schaffer is best known for films like If Lucy Fell (starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Ben Stiller) and After Fall, Winter. Boy Meets Girl premiered in New York January 2015 and has won over a thirty film festival awards.

David has never shied away from pushing himself creatively speaking. Most recently he developed an innovative music video for the deaf. By translating sound to colour and light, Porteous was able to share his music with the deaf community. "It's so compelling and intriguing…it takes the musical experience to a whole other level" said Asha Tomlinson, host of CBC News Now.

Over the years David has toured extensively in Canada, the UK, Europe and performed at top music festivals such as NXNE, CMJ Music Marathon, Havnekulturfestival Denmark, Music City North, Acoustic Edinburgh, and Canadian Music Week.

His passionate on-stage performances and lead guitar work have also landed him opening slots with many talented artists, including Emm Gryner, Peter Katz, Matthew Barber, Neverending White Lights, Rob Lamothe, Lindy, and Nellie McKay.
