Native to the cold, northern shores of Minnesota, Portage bellows a sound reminiscent of the rootsy-folk music that runs as deep in the region as Lake Superior itself, the inspiration behind their attic-recorded debut album, The Unsalted Sea. Since their move to Minneapolis, Portage can be found howling their intimate lyrics at full volume from stages and living rooms alike. With the release of their sophomore album, Landings, these four young men put on memorable shows that can make even the bitterest Midwestern night feel warmer.

Clearly a lot has changed in the world since the last Portage release almost 4 years ago. When I wrote this song I had no idea how fitting these words would be for the situation we find ourselves in today. There’s a strange sense of loss that runs pretty deep right now. At the same time, all the reconnection and genuine goodness that’s playing out is really encouraging. It’s a complex mix of emotions that I’ve personally been swinging wildly in between, day-to-day. Whatever you’re feeling, know that it’s valid. I hope you’re all staying healthy and physically distant, checking up on your friends, and helping those who need it.

With that said, I’m so excited to be releasing some new music for you all. In fact, I’ll be putting out a new song every month for the rest of 2020! “Feel Something New” is the first new Portage single and is now out on all the major streaming platforms.  Trent
