KC Porter, 2000
I was born in Los Angeles and raised in Guatemala from the age of seven. My musical influence was my father, Bob Porter, who was a trumpet player. He worked as a composer and arranger for musical groups and artists, as well as TV shows such as Lassie. I was around him all the time-at the studio, under the piano, singing on commericals or in his band, and listening when he practised the trumpet. I began taking piano lessons at the age of 11, which were extremely helpful. I had two teachers, one classical and one jazz and pop. The first strengthened my sight-reading and technique, while the other began teaching me the performance side of playing and how to analyse harmonic progressions in songs (something I still do involuntarily every time I hear a song).
