Artist's Biography

Jeremy Porter and The Tucos are a rock and roll band from Detroit, Michigan. They sound like guitars and whiskey, hooks and heartache, energy and passion. You'll find everything from Cheap Trick to Gram Parsons, Hüsker Dü to Uncle Tupelo, Merle Haggard to AC/DC on their turntables. The racket they make is a little bit of each. It's Detroit rock and roll, even if Detroit isn't quite ready for it.

Jeremy Porter grew up in Marquette, a small town in Michigan's upper peninsula, where he was a founding member of one of the UP's first punk bands - The Regulars. He moved to Detroit and tore through the 90s and 00s fronting bands like SlugBug, The OffRamps and Fidrych (as well as a solo stint) through 2 decades of recording and touring before forming The Tucos in 2009. Gabriel Doman (Hotwalls) and Bob Moulton (Cactusk) round out the trio.

* JP & The Tucos have released four full-length LPs, five 7"s, and a slew of contributions to comps.

* They've toured the US and Canada multiple times - playing festivals, theaters, clubs, corner bars, and coffee shops from Boston to Houston, Colorado to Montrèal, Minneapolis to Jacksonville, and all points between.

* In 2018 they toured the UK, playing 9 shows in 9 nights, including two nights in London and a showcase at the Swansea (Wales) Fringe Festival.

* They've become one of the go-to support acts for national acts coming through Detroit, opening for Lydia Loveless, Jesse Malin, Supersuckers, Beach Slang, Jesse Dayton, American Aquarium, Deadstring Brothers, Two Cow Garage, Whitey Morgan, LA Witch, Tim Barry, Old Man Markley and many more.

The Tucos fourth album "Candy Coated Cannonball" is AVAILABLE NOW and road support will begin as soon as it's safe to travel and congregate again.

About the Album

Released January 22, 2021.
On March 6th, 2020 – just a week before the country shut down because of Covid-19 – Jeremy Porter and The Tucos wrapped up tracking on their new album Candy Coated Cannonball. The album was recorded at Willis Sound – a huge, converted 1895 church in rural Willis, Michigan. Jim Roll (Jason Ringenberg, Chris Bathgate) twisted the knobs and lent his opinions about sounds and performances. Tim Patalan (Cheap Trick, Sponge, Watershed, The Fags, Ted Nugent) mixed the album at The Loft in Saline, Michigan, and Dan Coutant (The Sword, Smoking Popes, War on Women) mastered the tracks at Sun Room Audio in Windsor, NY.
