Damon Mitchell is a songwriting, singing, southpaw six-stringer. He recently appeared on stage as a guest guitarist/vocalist with America on their timeless hit, "Horse With No Name." Furthermore renowned drummer, Tris Imboden (Chicago, CS&N), is one of many notable guest artists on Damon's CD - proving that this young artist's respect for his influencers is clearly reciprocated. "There's unity amongst players within multiple genres on this record," Damon understates!
"Music has power. It is an act of creation. It is a language. Music is a conduit to something bigger than ourselves; something far beyond us. It is a conduit, and yet is simply how we tell our stories."
"A well-crafted cross between The Beatles and Death Cab for Cutie." That's the intriguing description of Damon Mitchell's music recently given by a well-respected music industry photojournalist. And, after listening to this 22 year old's debut release, said synopsis makes perfect sense. Damon's hook- laden, musical-wares cleverly combines influences from the past and present in a unique concoction that will undoubtedly become his signature.
Produced by award-winning and much respected bassist, Dave Martin, at Sweetwater Studios, we'll let Mr. Martin have the last word on this exciting, new, fast emerging entertainer. "Damon is a talented young artist, and I expect to hear great things from him in the future!"
