Taddy Porter is four Southern boys who grew up on a steady diet of blues and classic rock. The boys of Taddy have blended those classic sounds of their youth with the modern sounds of their latter years and come up with a sound that is described by Tulsa Urban Weekly as "good old-fashioned amps-on-11, tap-yer-foot-and -buy-another-beer rock'n'roll". Taddy began by meshing howling vocals and brawny beats to create a foundation for their sound. With the addition of ominous guitar riffs and toe tapping bass grooves they have grown to produce a nostalgic sound while keeping current with a modern look and feel. Taddy Porter's in your face sound was first started when Andy Brewer and Doug Jones met in early 2007. After jamming for several hours the two decided to start what would become the epic sound that has molded out of the foursome to date. The two found Joe Selby, a talented guitar instructor who just happened to be in the market for band with a soulful southern rock sound. With three out of the four formed, the band turned to Doug's brother, Kevin to provide the bass grooves. Now that the band is in full swing they have been churning out tunes and chugging through Oklahoma and its surrounding states.
