Port Cities


About Port Cities

Comprised of a trio of talented and established Canadian singer/songwriters, Halifax-based Port Cities employ a rich blend of breezy, Pacific Ocean pop and dusty country-folk that invokes names like Nickel Creek, Fleetwood Mac, Hem, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2011 by Breagh MacKinnon, Carleton Stone, and Dylan Guthro, all of whom were enjoying vibrant solo careers at the time, the Cape Breton three-piece didn't become an official entity until much later. A four-year stint spent playing in each other's bands and myriad solo projects eventually led to writing together, and in 2015, the newly minted group inked a major-label deal with Warner. A pair of singles, "Astronaut" and "Back to the Bottom," both of which showcased the trio's gift for fluid three-part harmonies, were released the following year, in anticipation of their debut full-length in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger
