You can find out where I come from, how I got started as a musician, and the road I've traveled since then on my BIO page. You can find out where I've been on my MEDIA page.

I also appear as featured artists with other groups including Ed Neumann & The Chameleons, The Norman Sylvester Band; and I have a guest host appearance for Ken Brewer's Thursday night "Blues therapy jam" at the Trails End and I'm working on guest appearance with (The Knuckleheads) in June or July and there will be more details posted on Face Book.
Seth & I frequently are invited to perform with Bolt Upright at the Montavilla Station on Sundays,
and occasionally we can be caught appearing with
Ken Brewer and Danny OBrien, Chad Rupp, Josh Makenzie, Ben Jones, Eric Rabe, Naomi Tatsuoka, Kevin Selfe, Ben Rice, Tracey Fordice, and many more.
We actively support the Portland live music jam scene and will appear at local venues to help stimulate businesses in building their revenues so they can employ our local, world class talent.
My group, Cedar Rose, is a collaborative effort that focuses mostly on traditional and contemporary Native American music. My good friend, Karen Kitchen, and I plan to perform at cultural events throughout the year. I may be collaborating with Toni Garcia who was our featured music artist on Discovering our story TV March 3rd 2013.
In addition to all of the above, you'll find information about my karaoke business, Nico's Karaoke Pony; my work with Wisdom of the Elders' radio and television programs; the introduction of any compositions of new songs I'd like to add to my repertoire; and family and friend news - because it's the people in my life who mean the most to me. Be aware that I consider my four doggies, Chonteh, Isy, Muddy and Etta my family, and so we will celebrate their major events in life along with ours. THANK YOU for visiting my webpage!
