Dakota Poorman

This is the OFFICAL Facebook page for Dakota Poorman.

From Seattle, Washington, Dakota Poorman has shared the stage with Toby Keith, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Parmalee, Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton, Runaway June, The Last Bandaleros, Brandi Carlile, Jackson Michelson and Rae Solomon. With his unique blend of Southern Rock, and Classic Outlaw Country, Dakota takes on a whole new genre of country, with his raspy tone and old soul sounds, this young up and coming artist is one to look out for!

Dakota Poorman is the singer/songwriter/guitarist! While growing up, his mother would sing around the house. Picking up in his mothers foot-steps and continuing the soulful sounds of Ray Charles and Patty Loveless, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard playing through the stereo, Dakota knew that country was his calling. Dakota picked up his first guitar when he was 7 years old and has been singing and playing ever since. When asked: "Where'd you get that talent?" he replies . . . "I really can't explain it, it's just something that comes natural to me and it makes me feel at home."

As soon as he slings that guitar across his body and steps up to the mic to sing and play, you know that's what God's plan was for him. When Dakota walks into a room - it doesn't matter if there's ten people or a ten thousand people, Dakota will be able to become friends with everyone of them. And when he gets on stage he makes it about the music and the crowd! The joy, the heart-ache, it's about what he stands for and what the music means to him. It's what he loves to do. If it wasn't about the music he wouldn't be performing. With his singing style of Bob Seger, Travis Tritt, and John Mellencamp, Dakota Poorman wants to proudly present to you the Pacific Northwests' new brand of Country!

Dakota Poorman is getting major recognition from the Northwest and all of the other surrounding areas, he just wants to tell everyone you don't have to be from the south to be considered Country.

You just have to follow your dreams!

We are a band that enjoys the company of friends and family, and are AWESOME FANS! Sitting around a nice fire with some beers and friends is what it's all about! Then when comes to music... We play are asses off to put on a stellar show for every individual person that comes to see us perform. We want to put on a great show to let everyone see we mean business! Just some great friends having an awesome time on stage doing what they love to do!

I know I'm late but, I wanna wish a Happy Mothers Day to my awesome mother! She always tells me to keep pushing for my dream. I may be a stubborn ass which I know I get it from dad, but she still loves me through it. Thank you for everything you have done for this family and me. Love you always.
