About Family Friend

Hello, and welcome to the Family, friend!

Family Friend is the musical collaboration of
Royer Bockus and Cedric Lamar, who first met and worked together as acting company members at the highly esteemed Oregon Shakespeare Festival. A deep musical connection and an instant friendship helped them develop a unique bond that is best experienced through their song and video work, or of course, in person if you happen to catch them live in concert. Part of the magic that Family Friend attempts to capture and share, through their joyous harmonies and infectious spirit, is a genuine desire to witness each other, and their community, through both uplifting and difficult times.

Royer and Cedric believe that music can be healing, true friendship is a gift, and family can be chosen. To be a fly on the wall during band rehearsals (that often morph into hangout sessions) you would see a long list of wonderful contradictions: a balance of serious introspection, irreverence, the search for understanding, the willingness to listen.... oh, and lots and lots of laughter.
Family Friend is a manifestation of their kinship, a band born of solidarity.

This Patreon page was created so we can have deeper relationship with those who follow our work, and we can further reveal who we are, how we create, and what we’re cooking up next! Becoming a monthly supporter of Family Friend will give you access to exclusive content, private streaming concerts, curated playlists, special song requests, and more! Not only will you get a behind-the-scenes look at our process and our silliness, but you'll be directly contributing to our ability to continue creating art. With the global pandemic shutting down live performances and our profession of theatre for the foreseeable future, the arts, and artists themselves, are in need of support now more than ever. Please consider becoming a part of the family.
