The Underground Experience Presents Uncle Earl’s Birthday Jam featuring Pop/Electro Dance Artists Porter & Jaymie Elliott and Mr. Chris Dupre – Producer/Director/Choreographer & Founder of True Vision Entertainment!
COME ONE….COME ALL….ON A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATORY JOURNEY WITH ME AND A FEW FRIENDS….IT’S GONNA BE SPECIAL!!!!!!!!!!
Porter and Jaymie Elliott are a completely original duo. While their pop music is very commercial, it still embodies a high level of integrity and artistic substance. They are their own studio creation, not relying on any outside writers/producers and are ready to release their vision of music, art and fashion to the world, IF the world is ready for them…
Not ones to rely on just their capable voices, they are true “show people,” staging their shows with dancers, wardrobe changes and high energy. Porter writes most of the material and co-produces it with Jaymie Elliott who has a very defined vision for what she wants to deliver to the audience.
Porter learned music producing directly from one of the most famous and successful music producers in the business, Narada Michael Walden. Walden, who worked with such industry icons as Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, saw the talent and drive in the young musician and brought him on as one of his associate producers. Porter’s main influences are other self-contained music machines like Prince and George Michael. Porter and Jaymie Elliott’s sound takes pages out of Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Black Eyed Peas.
They are already working on new music and are always working on their live performances, something they take very seriously. Today, they are some of the most talented young artists on the scene, writing, producing, singing and performing their own music, with their own band. People who hear them play and see them perform know this is not the same old sound or group. They are artists who have found a way to blend musical categories, old and new styles, and in the process, create something totally unique.
