Nick Caceres is a young singer-songwriter, with a voice directly inspired by hours of deep thought and imaginative contemplation. Like the train rolling over the hills on the cover of his debut EP “Hours of Life”, Nick’s music comes from a place far off and long lost, existing somewhere deep inside us all in an archetypal fashion. By bringing forth such a style of music in this manner, his songs serve as a counterpoint to the high-speed, high-tech, and often highly stressful world we’re living in today-
“Just when I think all the great music and lyrics have manifested themselves and the end of the world is near, Nick appears.....Beautiful Music! Beautiful!" -Gerard (KBCrecords.com)
Nick has been actively writing and performing music over the past few years in his hometown of Portland Oregon, drawing influence from the art and music scene there, while developing a sound (for the most part coincidentally) that follows in the paths of The Shins, The Decemberists, and Elliot Smith –Portland's heroes.
Over the summer (06') after graduating from high-school, he recorded the EP “Hours of Life” at Klickitat Band Camp recording studios (www.KBCrecords.com). Working along side the musical master-mind Shay Scott while collaborating with the local band D&K(myspace.com/dannyandkelly), “Hours Of Life” came to be, successfully capturing and displaying the original and
unique qualities of Nick’s music, while at the same time offering a glimpse into the rising wave of sound coming from the remarkable minds of today’s Portland youth.
