Nathanial Ingram has the stage name, the tough-yet-sensitive look and the hunger that just might make him a star. The 17-year-old Hillsboro musician performs most Friday evenings at downtown Hillsboro's Influence Gallery's open mike sessions. Ingram, who performs as Malachi Sterling, has no qualms about picking up his guitar between sets played by more seasoned singers and players and opening his heart with self-penned lyrics about love and life. He likes to sing about life experiences - friends', love, hurt, leaving, tears and the promise of brighter days. Saturday, July14th,2007 Ingram made a major move in his career with an appearance at Portland's renowned Music Millennium where the famous and hope-to-be famous have been showcased for many years. Ingram picked up his guitar and sang for a wider audience. The event also released his CD "Summertime in the City," produced by local pianist Dave Lee.

A mostly self-taught musician who plays banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, ukulele, piano and harmonica as well as 6- and 12-string guitar and more. Ingram/Malachi Sterling listened almost obsessively to Johnny Cash after the country great died in 2003.

He was soon writing music of his own and now performs a mix of his own and other's work at Portland Saturday Market, Hillsboro Farmers Markets, folk festivals, poetry jams and cafes and coffee shops.

Before a recent appearance at Influence Gallery, Malachi Sterling, with an entourage of friends and family, talked about being misunderstood, his early artistic and literary achievements (one year with the Children's Philharmonic Choir, third place in a Reading Rainbow literature contest, years of experience as an artist and jewelry maker) and his goals.

Malachi Sterling keeps grounded through a supportive family.

Michael and Michelle Di Napoli encourage their son's artistic endeavors. The young musician, hopes to attend Juilliard or the Oregon college of Arts and Crafts after he graduates from Glencoe High School, where he maintains a 3.0 grade average.

Wearing scruffy blue jeans and a leather vest, Malachi Sterling with the rings on his fingers, shoulder-length, curly hair and his Greek fisherman's-style cap, settles on a stool and takes a deep breath before launching into his outstanding music, working hard in the studio. Malachi is eagerly waiting to release his second CD, “Defuzed”; a composition of all his latest works which focuses on the more folk blues side of music.

"Through Visual Arts and Beautiful Lyrics, to the Magical Musical Sounds he continues every day to bring to this world, I am pleased and so proud to introduce to you Malach Sterling".

I come from a long line of musicians, singers writers and artists. I can trace my artistic heritage back on both sides of my family. I suppose my DNA was inevitably going to make me the creative eccentric I have become. I started drawing as soon as I could sit up. My mother really encouraged me to bring out all that I was in some type of artistic form. I have many good memories of my child hood. I remember sitting at my grandmothers piano and playing all day singing and becoming one with the artist deep in my soul while my mother clapped along and filmed me a lot. Grandpa built a stage in the garage for my cousins and me to put together performances. My cousin’s and I would sing and dance and be silly. I am very fond of those years.
My parents invested in piano lessons when I was nine and when I was 10, my parents bought a mountain dulcimer so I taught myself to play and I then decided to try out for the Portland Youth Philharmonic Choir and sing, so I gained the fun and experience needed to perform in front of large audiences. I was honored by singing with Michael Alan Harrison as well. That just was not enough for me. I felt something was missing. I went to my first concert, The Meringue Band which consisted of a large group of fellows with hand made wood xylophones that stood 4 feet high. It was incredible! My soul was opened up to a whole other type of music I had never heard before. Around the same time frame I wrote and illustrated a book called, “The legend of Ishbandoo”. I entered and competed in the Reading Rainbows Writers and Illustrators State Competition. I place 3rd in State and got my picture in the Argus News. That summer I went to see Allison Krause at the Portland Zoo, and fell in love with the Banjo.
At age of 12, I was introduced to John Cash and was inspired by him so much, I realized I had a gift of music and songwriting and I was given a guitar for my birthday. After 1 year of intensive self training I wrote my first composition, "In the Beginning". My parents decided to invest the next two and a half years of intensive training for me with Master Benjamin Haynor and Master Barbara Galloway. When I was 15 my parents bought a Mandolin for my sister so I taught myself to play and participated in the Liven Green Earth Day tribute at the Hillsboro Civic Center and played; John Denver‘s song, “Blow Up your TV”, and my song “DEFUZED”. They finally bought a Banjo for my 16th Birthday and I composed my first Banjo piece that night.
In 2007,when I turned 17, I had my first CD release with Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon. My parents invested everything they had into my music or art, giving me the opportunity to compose and produce my first 26 track CD called, "Summertime in the City", genres of Bluegrass, Blues, Folk and Light Rock and Comedy. That same year I opened for Kyle Vincent have had the pleasure of playing at Bluegrass festivals, Folk Festivals, Satyricon Night club. I was honored with an article of my achievements and a photo with my guitar that appeared on the front page of Hillsboro Argus’ community section.
In my 18 years I have had the pleasure of meeting, jamming or just seeing legends like Allison Krauss, David Holt, The Jug Banjoneer’s, Brooks and Dunn, Michael Allen Harrison, Rick Scagg’s, Doc Watson, John Prine, Chris Collins, and many other seasoned musicians from all over the West Coast. . While I trained in music over the years, I continued to peruse my Arts. I just graduated High School completing the 2008 State Requirements of CIM and CAM with a Mastery of Arts. I give many thanks to “Producer and Musician” Dave Lee, for helping me produce my CD’s; “Summertime in the City” and “Defuzed”; that has 19 tracks of fresh music right out of the studio. Thanks to my supportive parents for believing in me and giving me all the love and guidance they could give and to my sisters for standing by me all those years and letting me -be me and to my grandparents who always loved me just the way I am.
