Cici Artemisia (aka Porter)
Known in San Diego for her work with award winning band Bordertown, and endorsed by Taylor Guitars, Cici has experience in every kind of musical venue imaginable. She has sung in front of thousands at festivals and concert arenas, and has also done her share of gigs for a couple of drunks and a bartender. She can read a room, and knows when to unleash her heart-rending original ballads, or stick to La Bamba. Cici is out to have fun, and her joy is infectious. Professional, experienced and happy, you can trust your event to this woman and her music.
“Cici Porter is a performer of striking maturity. There’s an honesty and lack of pretense to her songs that qualifies her as far more than another pretender to the folk-queen throne… Porter is a first class artist and San Diego Should be proud to have her.”
-Mike Keneally, San Diego Reader
“Porter has made a beautiful, complex album. It speaks volumes about growing up and getting wise, but its seductive murmur makes each lesson feel like a promise.”
-Karla Peterson, San Diego Union Tribune
“I asked you to play at this songwriter’s showcase, Cici, to show the young ones what it’s all about.”
-George Varga, San Diego Union Tribune

Currently I'm recording a new album, and the music on this site is from that project. I can play as a solo artist, or with one or all members of that band: Dave Beldock on guitar, Paul Beach on bass, and Randy Renner on percussion. We play originals and covers. We always have a good time, and so will you;-).
