Live Music in Memphis

What's New on the Memphis Music Scene

What does Sam & Dave’s “Soul Man” and “Hold On, I’m Coming,” Mariah Carey’s “Dreamlover” and Will Smith’s “Get Jiggy Wit It” have in common? David Porter. With over 1,700 songwriter and composer credits, his is a household name in the music industry.
As staff songwriter for Stax Recording Studio from 1965 – 1974, Porter wrote hit after hit for talent such as Aretha Franklin, Isaac Hayes, Carla Thomas and Sam & Dave. Later, teaming up with Isaac Hayes, this duo composed 200 songs during the Stax era.
Today, instead of slowing down, David Porter has opened his own recording studio – Made in Memphis Entertainment – keeping Memphis on the map as a hot spot for great music. The newly-opened studio is in place and staffed with songwriters and artists. The facility has three recording studios and is available to hire for outside projects. Click here for directions.
