Music is my Life - I can't remember doing anything else. I write songs about whatever happens in life, whatever moves me. My songs are an audiobiography of everything I tried to understand in a lifetime. I listen to nature's sounds around me and try and imitate those sounds. (I have a bird, horse and donkey down pretty well)!
I also promote many other artists who have great melodies and stories to share. I have booked over 300 bands while in the Monterey Peninsula at many different venues, festivals, private events and house concerts. I really enjoy music of all styles and audiences of all ages.
I have quite a 'wow' story myself and have written hundred songs which comes pretty easy to me. I play guitar, bass, ukuele and drums if you'll let me. I have a great cover band called Fields of Eden featuring Steve Snider (Lead Guitar), Greg Edenfield (Drums), Mark Whittington (Bass), myself on Lead Vocals and Guitar and the Wowettes: Amber Guzman and Nicole Dillenberg. We play timeless favorite cover songs that audiences love. The feedback keeps us doing it and being with the band is just plain fun.
I love bringing people together by putting on cool events, house concerts, music festivals because it transcends race, religion, politics and anything that divides us. I have personally experienced over and again, the rich and deep connection people feel when they are enjoying a great song and stories of the road and the true stories of troubadour travelers down this musical highway. Yes, this is my passion.

"Kiki Wow is a unique treasure to the songwriter community. As the beloved host of the famous Monday Night Open Mike at Kulaks Woodshed, Kiki’s unabashed encouragement of young songwriters has become so legendary that, literally, songs have been written about her! But gracious though she may be as a host and emcee, her own songwriting shows the craft of a true professional. The lyrics are wide and deep; the music deceptively simple and accessible, but the unusual chord changes reveal the depth and complexity of her compositions. Her songs stay in your head and express so beautifully the mixed feelings of the heart. Kiki claims she wants her music to make you feel happy--or horny...preferably both! She’s appeared on ABC’s "The Norm Show" portraying (of all things!) an open mike singer, her songs have been heard in several independent films, she’s currently completing her latest CD release Top Of The World, produced by Grammy-winning producer CJ Vanston.
