Portugal. The Man's unique sound has its roots firmly in front man/songwriter Gourley's abstract vision and unique upbringing.  Gourley was raised in a remote log cabin on the outskirts of Wasilla, Alaska that was powered by a generator and had no phone.  His mom and dad doubled as a team of dog sled mushers.  Add in an extended period of homelessness, a love of science fiction and a desire to make music that does not sound like every other band, and the genesis of Portugal. The Man was formed.  Gourley and childhood friend Carothers formed P.TM in 2003 with Portland, OR's Jason Sechrist  joining in 2005.  To this day, P.TM employs a rotating cast of guest musicians outside of the core three. P.TM first release "Waiter: You Vultures!" was released in January 2006 and since then the band has releases 2 EPs and another full-length, "Church Mouth" all on the Orange County based punk label Fearless Records. P.TM have since completed that record deal and are have completed 2 more EPs and and are currently working on their follow up full-length. All this output while still managing to tick off over 330 shows in the same period. Writing, recording, and touring all the time.
