Rock quartet Taddy Porter were formed in Stillwater, OK, in October 2007 by singer/guitarist Andy Brewer, guitarist Joe Selby, bassist Kevin Jones, and drummer Doug Jones. After building up a following around the Oklahoma City area, they were signed to Primary Wave Records for the release of their self-titled debut album on June 29, 2010. Prior to the release, they earned airplay for the single "Shake Me" and placed their music on such television shows as Monday Night Football, ESPN SportsCenter, and Cougartown. Their songs "King Louie" and "Mean Bitch" were featured on the season premiere of the TV series Entourage two days before the album's release. The day after the Taddy Porter CD appeared, the group launched its first national tour, running through early September. They then joined Slash's tour as opening act. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
