BIOGRAPHY


Born 1961 in Flagstaff, Arizona, Rico got his first guitar when he was 12. While living near Lake Powell Northern Arizona, Rico met up with a young Christian fellowship group who would meet every Saturday afternoon by the lake.  The music is what first attracted him, yet it wasn’t long before he realized that these people were genuine. They loved and accepted everyone for who they were.


The music seemed to have a great influence on the group as they would gather to play their acoustic instruments and sing along with a harmony and an atmosphere that went beyond anything he had ever experienced.


After graduating high school in 1978 in Phoenix, Arizona at the age of 16, Rico took to the road. Those were the days when hitching a ride was still a pretty safe thing to do. Rico traveled throughout the US, Central, and South America. Taking his guitar, the joy of life and the experience of love and acceptance he learned at the lake.


Rico began an adventure that continues to this day. Before leaving the teen years Rico had written and composed several amazing songs including, WITH ME, PEOPLE ARE JUST PEOPLE, and HOMESTEAD IN MY HEART.


Continuing with his passion for meeting new people and seeing different places, Rico continues to take his talent on the road. He prefers the small town venues. He says small town people are so hospitable and always seem to love a visitor. 


Rico never has a set of songs ready to play because he waits to read the crowd. With a selection of over 400 songs of every variety, Rico has a way of just knowing what the atmosphere is and how it may need to change or just get better. Sometimes it’s as if he is singing just to you.


Rico plays mostly cover songs of every variety. It’s hard to find a request that he can’t do. He plays country, rock and roll, oldies, dance, party, love songs and all the in between. The most favored songs are his latest originals like, PRETTY MUCH and FACES IN THE CLOUDS. Rico does love the attention, but  more than that Rico loves people and he loves to create an atmosphere were people can come together to enjoy life and have a great time. Rico believes that you must first love yourself or you cannot love others. That’s why I love Rico.
