We are also pleased to welcome special musical guest, Rick Cortes. Rick is an acoustic guitarist / singer / songwriter who arrived in Bremerton over a decade ago intent on starting a new life, but soon found himself homeless. His experiences moved him toward music with a conscience, and together with his “forever sweetheart” and co-writer Lana Taylor, he penned songs addressing societal injustices, including “Broken Man,” a song submitted for Richard LeMieux’s Breakfast at Sally’s film project. Retired from the Bremerton School District, Rick currently serves as a staff member at Benedict House.
Listen to some of Rick’s music below:
