About Damon Mitchell
"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 23 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.
Damon - a songwriting, singing, southpaw six-stringer - 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!
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!"
