Biography
Peter Block and Caleb Sherman grew up just blocks apart in New York City, but never met each other until their musical worlds collided. Together they created Porter Block, an alternative pop group that shows both Block and Sherman's sharpened expertise acquired through their knowledge, skill and memorable collaborations.

Block, whose mother was a Chamber music graduate in piano, started contributing musical shorts for advertisements and films and eventually formed his first band Tripasaurus in 2003. Recently, he collaborated with ADM from the Lordz of Brooklyn, and Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips from Galaxie 500 and Luna.

Sherman, on the other hand, made his band's first record with legendary producer Bernard Edwards. He then went on to lend his production talents to artists in Nashville to New York, which is where the Porter Block finally erupted.

In 2005, Block teamed up with Sherman to create a powerhouse songwriting and production duo. With tightly woven 3 minute songs, Porter Block brings imagination to the mundane with kitchen sink vignettes and hook laden pop tunes.

Many have compared the band to everything from Fountains' of Wayne to Crowded House, but the band found their influences in late Beatles and XTC recordings.

The band was recently asked to take part in an indie-rock compilation "Guilt By Association" alongside Devendra Bernhart, Jim O'Rourke, Superchunk, among others. Their debut album will be released this fall on Engine Room Records.
