Over the past decade, Portugal. The Man has flourished from their Alaska roots into a rock band to be reckoned with. Now based in Portland, Oregon, but still deeply proud of their birthplace in the Last Frontier, the band is comprised of John Gourley, Zach Carothers, Kyle O’Quin, Eric Howk, Jason Sechrist and Zoe Manville.
The band soared to new heights in 2017 with the release of their RIAA certified-gold album, Woodstock. The album’s single, “Feel It Still,” earned the group accolades including a Grammy® award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, a five-time RIAA platinum-certified single certification, and a 20-week residency at #1 on alternative radio.
In addition to their passion for music, Portugal. The Man is also passionate about social justice. In a display of their commitment to artistry and activism, they launched the PTM Foundation in 2020, focused human rights, community health and the environment. Recent partnerships include organizations such as Keep Oregon Well (mental health), March for Our Lives (gun reform) and Protect Our Winters (climate change).
