Portugal. Is the Man

John Gourley, singer/guitarist/organist/machinist (yep) of Portugal. The Man, joins a list of this year’s over-achieving Bonnaroo performers – including David Byrne and Paul McCartney – who are also gifted in the visual arts. Look on the cover of the band’s albums for his colorful designs. Gourley says that he began creating artwork for the band because they “couldn’t afford to hire someone else to do it,” but then “luckily…it worked out.” John and Co. chatted with us about their Bonnaroo experience in this 2011 interview.
