Portishead are an English band formed in 1991 in Bristol. The band is named after Portishead, Somerset, eight miles west of Bristol, along the coast.
The first album by Portishead, Dummy, was released in 1994. Despite the band’s aversion to press coverage, the album was successful in both Europe and the United States (where it sold more than 150,000 copies even before the band toured there).

Dummy was positively described by the Melody Maker as “musique noire for a movie not yet made”. Rolling Stone praised its music as “Gothic hip-hop”. Dummy spawned three singles: “Numb”, “Sour Times”, and “Glory Box”, and won the Mercury Music Prize in 1995. The success of the album saw the band nominated for Best British Newcomer at the 1995 Brit Awards.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 419 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The album is often considered one of the greatest trip hop albums to date and is a milestone in the definition of the genre.
On 2 May 2022, Portishead performed for the first time in seven years at O2 Academy Bristol. Organized by War Child UK, the concert benefited refugees and children affected by the Ukraine war.
Portishead‘s music was influenced by a wide range of singers and composers. Beth Gibbons’s voice has been compared to singer Billie Holiday. Adrian Utley mentioned the spaghetti western guitar composed by Ennio Morricone; he said that “[Morricone’s] The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is the sort of soundtrack that I love”.
Their discography includes three studio albums, one live album, one compilation, ten singles and one video album.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE PORTISHEAD?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire PORTISHEAD for an event?)
(i.e., what is PORTISHEAD booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for PORTISHEAD, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
