Featured Release This Week From Portugal. The Man + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jul 24, 2017

Portugal. The Man founding members John Gourley and Zach Carothers met as high school students in Wasilla, Alaska.  They were originally in another band before starting Portugal. The Man in the early 2000's.  Band members came and went, the group relocated to Portland, Oregon, and their first full-length record came out in 2006.  Woodstock is the eighth album, inspired by the spirit of the original 1969 Woodstock Festival.  John Gourley feels that music has the same mission today as it did then- "to comment on societal and political unease." Gourley said the band was "trying to say something that mattered...trying to write music that would help people feel they're not alone, even if they're angry or feeling lost."
