Jody Porter is a New York City-based guitarist who has spent the past decade playing and co-singing in the Grammy-nominated powerpop band Fountains of Wayne. He is also know for collaborations with artists such as Albert Hammond Jr., Jesse Malin, Ivy and Juliana Hatfield.

In 2008 Porter finished work on his debut solo album Close to the Sun. The 12 song album bridges the gap between the sonic atmospheric stylings of The Belltower and the guitar driven powerpop of Fountains of Wayne. It was co produced by Michael Tudor and Gordon Raphael (Strokes, Regina Spector).

The album was first released in Japan by FAEC/Rough Trade on July 2nd of that year, and was later picked up by Engine Room Recordings and released worldwide on May 11, 2010.
