The Rhythm and the Flavor

Mike Anderson and Laurelann Porter are, collectively, The Rhythm & The Flavor. With Laurelann on sultry, smooth, bluesy vocals and Mike accompanying her on acoustic guitar they have developed a sound that stems from what they both believe to be the roots of all culture: the rhythm and the flavor. 

Performing a mix of original songs and pop music covers from the decades, especially the 80s, they seek to reinvent familiar songs by breaking them down to their core essence and offering loungey-blusey versions of some hidden gems and some favorite classics. When people have demanded to know “But who is the flavor and who is the rhythm?” Laurelann responds: “I’m the flavor, of course!”
