Nick Guzman's Bio
Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Neil Young, Susan Cowsill, Vicki Peterson, are just some of the performers with whom Nick Guzman has shared a stage.
A singer/songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area, Nick recently relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his passion. He has been described as having a Beatlesesque vocal quality. With his love and natural ability to harmonize, his musical influences include The Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and The Beach Boys.
In 2011 Nick’s musical career began when he was asked to perform “Helplessly Hoping” with rock legend, Stephen Stills for the Miracle Project. A full circle moment, it was the 1st song Nick learned to play on guitar. The Miracle Project is an organization which helps people with Autism foster their communication skills through the arts.
In 2013 Nick was asked to perform by The Miracle Project for the first Light Up The Blues Concert in Los Angeles––MC’d by Jack Black––where he again performed with Stephen Stills. Other musical guests included Rickie Lee Jones, Don Felder, Ryan Adams, Lucinda Williams and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Just before leaving Northern California to move to Southern California in June of 2014, friends asked Nick to open their house concert for Susan Cowsill and Russ Broussard. Susan and Nick also played three songs together when Susan suggested for Nick to meet Paul Rock, rock promoter for his organization Wild Honey when arriving to Los Angeles.
In Los Angeles Nick opened for the Psycho Sisters which included Susan as well as Vicki Peterson of the Bangles for The Wild Honey Concert Series. He also played a few songs with them and Wild Honey members, Nelson Bragg of The Brian Wilson Band, Derrick Anderson of The Bangles, John Cowsill, drummer for the Beach Boys and Russ Broussard.
In February, 2015, Nick was invited to perform “I’m So Tired” with Susan Cowsill for The Wild Honey, White Album Concert, at the Alex Theater.
That spring, Nick returned for the third Light Up The Blues Concert, singing his original song, “Am I Trembling?” with Chris Stills, at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Other guests included Shawn Colvin, The White Buffalo, and Steve Earl. The highlight for Nick was living out a lifelong dream performing “Rockin’ in the Free World” with his hero, Neil Young.
Later that year, he played again with the Wild Honey Organization for the Help John Wicks Beat Cancer Concert with The Bangles, Jon Brion, Al Stewart, Denny Laine (former Wings-Moody Blues), Peter Case, The Muffs, Carla Olson and The Kennedys.
Nick has opened several house concerts for Nathan McEuen (son of John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Megan Slankard and Jeff Campbell––singer/songwriters out of San Francisco.
