“31” the studio album by David Porteous


The Baja 1000 – one thousand miles through city streets, desert and mountainous terrain. What happens when three rookie drivers attempt to compete in one of the most infamous and dangerous off-road motorsports events in the world?

“Any project of such wide scope has potential for missteps, but Porteous’s earnest songs,
which we literally watch him write on the battlefields of Europe, bring some urgency to
events that for many of us are usually just pieces of history. And that’s no small feat.”
