Famous as the lead singer of the California-based rock and pop band Allstar Weekend, Porter recorded two albums with the group -- Suddenly Yours in 2010 and All the Way in 2011 -- before he and his bandmates parted ways.
He joined Twitter in 2009 and, by late 2014, had close to 69,000 followers. His band's even more popular YouTube channel, which was launched in 2008, accumulated over 87,000 subscribers and close to 24,000,000 individual views over the next six years.
He and bassist Cameron Quiseng were Allstar Weekend bandmates.
In 2007, he became part of a band called Outerspace Politicians; the group later changed its name to Allstar Weekend and ascended to fame following a performance on Radio Disney's Next Big Thing talent competition.
He was born and raised in the San Diego suburb of Poway, California.
