Nick Kello was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and spent his childhood and later years traveling and living in diverse corners of the globe, including Boston, Montreal, Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo. This global upbringing afforded him both a fluency in the diverse languages in which he sings his music (Portuguese, English, Spanish and French) as well as a natural exposure to a wide variety of musical tastes and styles. Nick earned a degree in Philosophy and Literature from Boston College, as well as a degree in Musical Performance for the Guitar from California Institute of the Arts, where he studied with Miroslav Tadic, Stuart Fox, and Larry Koonse.  For the past twelve years, Nick has worked as a performer, recording artist, and composer; with a longer career as an educator. He has been involved in composing and performing music for various interdisciplinary arts projects, (including animation, dance and theater), and has performed live concerts of both traditional Brazilian songs and original compositions. These have included a recent concert opening for Poncho Sanchez at The Cave in Big Bear, as well as performances at Dodger Stadium, Pershing Square, REDCAT, House of Blues and the Levitt Pavilion. He has also performed internationally in South American and European venues. Nick has worked prolifically as an educator in a variety of school settings -- teaching diverse subjects, including music, literature and philosophy. He is currently based in Los Angeles, California, where, aside from his work as a composer, performer, and recording artist, he is still actively involved as an educator. He currently holds the position of Director Of Music Programs at Mirman School, in Los Angeles CA.
