with Nick Caceres

Nick Caceres is an artist who hails from the Northwest, and is a Portland OR native. He began constructing songs on his guitar when he was just fifteen, and recorded a handful of albums with a friend in their basement studio over the next few years, none of which he felt ready to share with the public. It wasn't until he released his fourth album, "Distances We Travel", that he began playing out and creating a fan base.

He attended Cornish College of the Arts for one year in their singer songwriter department, and left with a rich album of songs, which would become known as After Abernethy. Caceres gigged this album for the next two years, releasing a single called "The Victorian Hoedown", which found it's way onto Portland's PDX POP NOW 2008 compilation album, as well as 2009's Friends And Friends Of Friends compilation, and was featured in a music video by Out Of Line Productions.

Caceres then garnered the attention of Portland record label Tender Loving Empire, who signed his project "Gratitillium", under which he released two albums. Over the next five years, while performing with both his acts, Caceres shared the stage locally with groups such as Sallie Ford, Y La Bamba, and Hosannas, and nationally with groups such as Family Of The Year and The Walkmen.

After this he turned his attention back to the album After Abernethy. The original drums, vocals, and acoustic guitar had been recorded at Gung Ho Studios in Eugene in 07', and Caceres proceeded to build the rest of the album himself. He ended up receiving help from friends and musicians such as former Horse Feathers member Sam Cooper and Wild Ones' Max Stein- who added string arrangements to the album. Nick completed and released After Abernethy after eight years.

He quickly followed with the release of Flesh And Frequencies, which featured drums played by Ben Olsen on just over half the songs, while the rest was played, recorded and mixed by Caceres. It marked his first fully self produced release since Gratitillium Volume 1, featuring more electric guitar, as well as his most uptempo array of songs to date. Caceres said it draws on his experiences playing live on stage over the years. He was seeking a full band sound.
