Portugal. The Man is a rock band from Wasilla, Alaska, that formed in 2004. The group is currently based in Portland, Oregon, and consists of John Baldwin Gourley, Zach Carothers, Jason Sechrist, Zoe Manville, Kyle O’Quin, and Eric Howk. Gourley and Carothers were the group’s first members, and they started playing music together while still in high school in Alaska.
Since then, the group has released eight studio albums, the most recent being 2017’s Woodstock. That record features the smash-hit track “Feel It Still,” which earned the band a Grammy for Best Pop Duo or Group Performance. They’ve performed at festivals like Lollapalooza, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and more, and they have a storied reputation as festival favorites with an inescapable presence. They claim they’ve been inspired by groups like Pink Floyd and Radiohead.
