Daniel Portis-Cathers

Daniel was born in Newport, OR, was raised in Italy and traveled frequently throughout western Europe. As an adult he spent time in both Africa and Sri Lanka recording music and sound effects for use in later projects. World music continues to exert a strong influence in his writing.

As a performer, he toured the Pacific Northwest for several years with The Portis-Cathers Ensemble, a trio incorporating guitar, violin (Dave Burham and Rob Thomas) and tabla/percussion (Roger Hadley). Incorporating a blend of classical, jazz and world music styles, Joseph Roe from OPB identified them as “one of the truly great new music ensembles in the Northwest.”

During the late 90’s and early 2000’s Daniel moved to Nashville to study songwriting and song production. His passions are writing and producing. A highlight of his work is collaborating with instrumentalists and writers from around the country.
