Rebecca Porter is a singer-songwriter based in Harrisonburg, Virginia.


Rebecca Porter balances her distinctive storytelling with the dynamics of her commanding voice in a unique display of soulful classic country.

A singer-songwriter born in Guam and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Rebecca Porter continues to forge her way in country music with songs that are heartfelt and honest. 

A lifelong innate connection to music guided Porter into performing live as a young adult. Through  a decade’s worth of live performance with Harrisonburg-Rockingham County area musicians, Porter learned the ropes of life as a performing and recording artist. When her work in cover bands came to a pause after the birth of her first child, Porter found herself stumbling through parenting an infant during a global pandemic. The pandemic and motherhood left Porter yearning for the return to connection and music.

In spring 2020, Porter sat down and committed to playing guitar and writing independently. The songs and stories she wrote helped her process a rocky childhood and young adult life checkered with domestic violence, generational trauma, discrimination that coincided with her life as a Pacific Islander woman growing up in rural Virginia, as well as more current struggles with postpartum loneliness and recurring depression.


Porter transformed her pandemic loneliness into two EPs - “Prime Rainbow Conditions” and 2023’s “Queen of the Local”, the latter of which was successfully crowdfunded based on Porter's formidable regional power. Porter tours extensively around her home state of Virginia, and steadily increasing forays outside the state, commanding stages up and down the East Coast. With completely independent legwork, her EP is making rounds nationally and internationally. Her body of work, including her new music video, is available here.

Audiences react wonderfully to the fusion of Porter's honky tonk infused singer-songwriter sounds. She tours with a tight, professional band, but can hold her own in a room solo if necessary.
