Portair is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, graphic designer/artist, and producer from Sydney, Australia. Not too long ago, he released a lovely alternative-folk tune, entitled, “All The Things We’ve Never Done.”
Portair – “All The Things We’ve Never Done” single
“No flowers in the window, no steps down the hall. We never found the time to pick up and call. Emotions we show that we never meant to. Cobble stone back roads, we never went through. We try, we try to do our best to leave behind our emptiness. To love each other through the rest, heart to heart we must confess. All the good we ever won, we lost to things we’ve never done.” — lyrics
‘All the Things We’ve Never Done” contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The emotional tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with alternative folk and indie-pop elements. Furthermore, “All The Things We’ve Never Done” is featured on Portair’s new EP, entitled, “The Light That Breaks.”
“Two hands aren’t strong enough to hold us together when everyone’s telling us things could be better.”
“I got into meditation pretty heavy this last year. My mind was so crazy all of the time. It’s not about quieting the mind but about being with it and observing it. It really brought me a lot of peace. For a while I had a very nihilistic approach: We’re just here by some weird accident. If you truly break it down, what do we do every day? We eat to survive, otherwise, we die. And then the rest is entertainment. That got me thinking, ‘Why are we here?’ That may seem like a bummer, but it’s not. If we’re truly here by accident, we’re lucky to be alive.” – Portair explained
You probably haven’t heard of Portair. But as this solo act’s name would suggest, his music has been wafting around you, hidden in plain ear-sight, for years. As a songwriter and a producer, he’s had tracks and scores placed on networks such as Netflix, NBC, MTV, and CBS.
“It is always difficult writing such personal things and knowing the people closest to me will speculate that they played a part in that. For me, this is a cathartic outlet. I hope it can be that for other people, too.” – Portair explained
Although he’s ready to go public, Portair would rather let his music speak for itself. It’s an alluring introduction to a natural storyteller, whose earthy folk-pop wades through life’s pain to discover its harmony.
“All the things we’ll never know make it hard to call our house a home. There’s a whole wide world of things we’ve never done and it’s getting in the way of how we love.”
“When I moved to LA, I wanted to start something organic. This project is all my passions I can express in one cohesive art form.” – Portair explained
