Theresa Demarest

As a songwriter, Theresa demonstrates her ability to spin a tale - behind which she masterfully creates a mood and a presence that can alternately send shivers down your spine or make you tap your feet. (MUSICIAN'S NETWORK MUSIC MAGAZINE, SEATTLE WA) Theresa mixes Folk, R&B, Rock, and touches of jazz. The Portland Tribune, A&E Staff Writer Janine Robben writes: "Theresa Demarest has been a nun, wife, mother, single parent, Critical Care RN, cancer survivor, motorcycle mama. But, most important, she's a singer with a bluesy-folksy-jazzy voice that picks up the high and low notes of each of her experiences and reproduces them with perfect clarity - like a really great sound system."

Theresa performs with 3 - 8 musicians from her band Good Company depending on venue, sound requirements, and performance budget. The band is able travel. Band members have been performing with Theresa for over 15 years.

She brings this unique voice to her film work. Her first film, Herd of Two, chronicles her compelling journey to bond with a highly spirited Half-Arab Half-Saddlebred filly named Tehya Takoda. In her films, she utilizes her original music to heighten and musically illustrate her message in order to effect positive change in the environment through education and music.

Theresa Demarest & Joshua Records, LLC in Association with the Free Willy-Keiko Foundation are in production of a full length documentary film about Keiko’s life and legacy, utilizing music written by Theresa Demarest, Tim Ellis, & Jean-Pierre Garau. The Film is filled with breathtaking music. As producer/director of "Keiko The Untold Story", Theresa brings to life her deep connection to Keiko’s story. During her recovery from breast cancer, she found solace in Keiko’s own recovery from captivity in a Mexican theme park to his rehabilitation tank at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Upon surviving cancer, and inspired by Keiko’s story of healing, she composed Keiko’s Dream, an instrumental piece that evokes the whale’s song through an eloquent guitar theme. Her piece evolved into Keiko’s Dream Tour, a ‘unique eco-rock road show’ that consisted of a series of concerts and environmental education presentations in schools and performance halls across Oregon in association with the Free Willy Keiko Foundation.

A second song titled “Keiko”, is performed by Jean-Pierre Garau, Tim Ellis, Jamin Swanson, Reinhartz Meltz, and Renato Caranto.

The film, Completed in June 2010, has now begun screening at film festivals. see at
