Music in this Episode 

Artist: Daryl Tonemah

Track: “I Know”


BIO: If the Eagles, Steve Earle, Dave Matthews, and James Taylor had a lovechild, they would have named him Darryl Tonemah. Tonemah had no idea that when he began writing songs in college, that several years later, he would have played thousands of shows, made numerous radio and TV appearances, released six albums with multiple awards and nominations, all while building up what has become an international fan base. Despite all of these successes, Tonemah retains a deep connection with his roots and a gift for intimate storytelling that has become his trademark. A full-blooded Native American (Kiowa/Comanche/Tuscarora), growing up on and off reservations throughout the country, as well as his “day job” as Dr. Tonemah, has given him a unique perspective that is evident in his songwriting.

Just a few of Tonemah’s live show highlights include performances at the 2002 Winter Olympics, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, The Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian, The Native American Music Awards Show, and The New Orleans Jazz Festival. He has shared the stage with such national acts as Foreigner, Three Dog Night, Hootie & The Blowfish, Creedence, Johnny Lang, Rusted Root & Donna The Buffalo, among others. Darryl Tonemah is not satisfied with channeling his creativity solely in the area of music. He is also an actor that has appeared in three movies – “DMZ”, “The Last Of The Mohicans,” and "The Cherokee Word for Water

Whether reaching out to Native communities through his many workshops & speaking engagements, or pouring it all out on stage, in front of the camera, in the recording studio, or putting pen to paper, Tonemah’s personality always shines through as a man with a creative spirit, a compassionate heart, and a passion for life and his many pursuits.
