2016 Brings New Releases, New Artists


Happy New Year from Port Merch! We’re just 12 days into 2016, and there’s a lot happening here. In the last couple of weeks, we’ve welcomed a new artist to our roster, and unleashed a couple of great new releases.

JOHN MORELAND is a singer and writer from Oklahoma specializing in stripped-down, gritty songs with influence from rock, punk, folk, and blues. He’s quickly garnering a national following on the strength of his latest release, High On Tulsa Heat. Check out all of the albums he has to offer, plus his new shirts, at his new online store.

The new album from LUCINDA WILLIAMS, The Ghosts of Highway 20, is now available for pre-order. The 2-CD set will be released on February 5th, and it features instrumental icons Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz on all 14 tracks. Garden and Gun Magazine says the album “has the feel of a masterpiece”. Pre-order it here.

Another musical icon, MAVIS STAPLES, begins another year of her illustrious career with a new album. Livin’ on a High Note features songs written specifically for Mavis by the likes of Benjamin Booker, Nick Cave, Justin Vernon, tUnE-yArds, Neko Case, Aloe Blacc, Ben Harper, and others. This is one of the can’t-miss albums of the year, coming at you on February 19 and available for pre-order now.
