The story behind the sound.


My name is Damian and I’m a singer/songwriter from Belfast.  My main instrument is guitar, both acoustic & electric, but I try my best at piano too.  I’d learn every instrument if I had the time & ability; they’re all amazing! I’m aiming at drums & trumpet next.

I’m currently a solo artist, I’ve released 1 EP so far (Late One Night), and am currently working on a full album, hopefully to be released by the end of the year.

One of my previous projects was the 5-piece alt/blues-rock band Tempest Fugitives. We recorded an EP together (Around the Sun), won the Jagermeister Battle of the Bands in Belfast, and played at the Sunflower Festival and the Belfast Blues Festival (in which we played 2 gigs in one night, a lot of fun).

My days are spent writing & practicing, and at nights I’ll usually be found performing, either at gigs for original artists, open mics, or covers gigs in bars (you have to pay the rent eh? Also I enjoy that too 😉 )

I’m hugely influenced by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Hili Peppers, Pearl Jam and this comes through in my music. But I’ve a very wide variety of musical interests and I’m sure there are plenty more artists and styles influencing my writing and playing that I’m not even fully aware of.

All in all it’s about the music, not the man, so I hope you take some time to listen to my recordings so far, and come back to hear what I come up with in the future…
