Press for "Yes, I Do!"


"Yes, I Do! constitutes my first hearing of the magnificent pipes and total vocal command that Ms. Porter wields along with full studio-pro-level execution on each of her keyboards. The smoothness and quiet assurance in her singing is unusual in contemporary blues, and so rewarding to experience in good headphones.  Her range allows her to glide the intra-verse refrains in Over You as if effortless, yet with the poignancy of the song's desolation.  Slurring into pitches with the certainty of Sarah Vaughan, she never misses her targets.  Somehow, the impression is that Jennifer Porter is holding back, allowing all the feeling of her lyrics in mezza voce, only hinting at the power and teasing with occasional syllables the blessing each vowel receives when such an artist intones it.  Voices like Jennifer’s do not come along with any frequency, and the combination of natural talent and disciplined control is even rarer.   (I) envy anyone who gets to listen to (Her) voice in natural surroundings with out mics and PAs. Yes, I Do! is masterful work.  Yes, It Is!" - Dave Gallaher, Talkin' The Blues With Microwave Dave WLRH Huntsville, Al and WUTC FM Chattanooga TN
