I'm a singer/songwriter in Los Angeles with a BA in music (Composition and voice) from CSU, Fullerton. I grew up in Porterville, CA, where music is nurtured in the schools. I wrote my first song when I was four years old and never stopped. You can see my duet with Melissa Manchester at The Rose in Pasadena on YouTube, along with many other videos. I'd love to connect with you there, and on Facebook and Twitter, so please subscribe and follow and I will reciprocate. I'm a cantor at Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood, CA and am also an lgbt rights activist. I have sung backup for Josh Groban, Melissa Manchester, Alfie Boe, Pete Townsend, Billy Idol, Diahann Carroll and Sarah Vaughan. My songs feature guest artists such as Carol Robbins, Christoph Bull, Paul Nowell, George Reich, Hope Easton, Darek Oles, Sean Winchester, Chad Ellis, and others. My fans graciously funded two albums and a new holiday single. I continue to actively promote all my music since it is new to most people.

For my new single, "Finlandia Brasileira" I wrote a Christmas lyric to Jean Sibelius's beloved tune, "Finlandia." Producer Stephan Oberhoff gave it the treatment he's known for with his band Heartbeat Brazil.
My lifelong muse, Melissa Manchester brought me on stage at The Rose in Pasadena, CA after I won her cover contest. See the duet on YouTube via my website, as well as our new animation video "The Friendly Beasts/Away in a Manger." Please subscribe for more music and videos. Thank you.

Hey Johnny,

Thanks for the review of my song, "We Have Never Let Go Of Our Dreams". Glad you enjoyed it.

It is an older song recorded in 1994 on a Tascam 8-track cassette recorder. Glad I studied the recording techniques of George Martin, so I could pack as much sound into that thin cassette tape.

All of those old songs are on the docket to be re-recorded with updated systems.....that is, if I find time to slide one of these older tunes into my new song production schedule.

Best to you in your endeavors.

Chet Nichols
