I was big when I was little, 22" at birth, 5' 11" when I was 12 and now am close to 6' 5" when I stand up straight. I've always been big and I've always been loud, things are no different now. I sing, I write, I am a maker of art, I build, I teach, I learn, I live hard and most of all I love, everything!
I don't always like everything and know that life isn't always fun. I'm a moronic optomist and see the plus in all. I get my name from Lake Tahoe, CA and the local Washoe Indian translation of 'Tahoe', meaning 'Big Water'. I think life is a practice, a discipline that is beauty in motion that I meant to go and run and jump and play in. I know that I'm alive and I'm here to say, 'What up?' and 'How are you?'. 'My name's Big Water, what's yours?'
Big Water is an artist, educator, producer, songwriter and most of all a singer with a voice like liquid gold. As a one man show or backed by his band, his original music is a gift of heart and soul that blends folk, country, and blues with beautiful melodies and grooving rhythms. Three CD’s, LOOK, LISTEN, AND FEEL (2001), LIFE ON EARTH (2005) and IN THE GARDEN (2007), all let you in on how this man views the hope and the hurt of the human experience in our beautiful world. Big Water calls Portland, Oregon his Base Camp and has toured and traveled carrying love, music, and fun to all generations everywhere he goes. From sometimes ‘singing for his supper’, to playing festivals with other artists or doing creative writing workshops with kids in schools, this artist is dedicated to his craft and to the shared experience between performer and audience. Big Water is a solid and seasoned artist to keep your eyes on with his ‘get under your skin and into your heart’ song writing style. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing along on his songs whether you know them or not. Big Water is a feel good artist that shines on your spirit, soothes your soul, and heals your heart. Big Heart, Big Mind, Big Water.
