Ports of Call is a five-piece indie rock/shoegaze band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


Ports of Call began in 2007 when former band mates Tom Fleischer and Thomas Mosher reunited and joined with drummer Daniel Salerno. The band began writing material at a feverish pace and began to search for a second vocalist. Carolynne McNeel soon joined the group adding essential guitar, string, and keyboard elements as well as vocals as they entered Second Story Studios in West Chester, Pennsylvania to record their debut album "Like Thieves...".

After recording the album, bassist Andrew Grossman departed and was replaced by Stephanie Hesser.

"Like Thieves..." was released by the band on February 26, 2008.
