Steve Porter - Ragtime Recording Artist

(Excerpt taken from Early Record Catalog)

Mr. Steve Porter is one of the pioneer makers of talking machine records, having been engaged in this work since 1897. He is a most versatile singer, comedian, and a experienced male quartet member. His work in the American Quartet is of the greatest value to that organization. Mr. Porter's comic style involves a rapid patter effect that is a riot. He also uses several different dialects and voices (both male & female) in his records to create great comic effect. His famous Irish and other dialect specialties have been much enjoyed by lovers of clean comedy.
