About Us

The musical duo: "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!”

Our Current Creative Project

Game On Game Off, an immersive, improv-based show created by Arizona-based artists Mike Anderson and Laurelann Porter.  Inspired by our favorite game show when we were both kids, the show takes a "Noises Off" approach to looking at comedy from the front and back stage areas. Zany and fun entertainment for all.

Our Life as Creative Partners

Most of the time we like to chill out in our backyard by the pool and write music together.  But we also love to engage in creative writing, film and video production, photography, and international traveling. We also love board games.  This photo was taken at our favorite hostel in Itacaré,Bahia,Brazil:  "Mais Que Nada" hostel, owned by a great blues singer, herself, Sandy Hill.

In Dialogue: Podcast

Each month we attend a movie and a live theatrical presentation and put them in dialogue with each other - just to see what it brings up in conversation.
