ABOUT

My name is Damian and I have been playing the drums since I was 9. I currently play in a 7 piece hip hop/funk/rock group called Theatre Crisp. We just released our album "It's An Obligation" which is on iTunes, Spotify and Apple Music!

I have played in an 8 piece reggae band and studied jazz and Mohawk College as well as taught music for 4 years at Merriam School of Music.

I am a session musician and do studio work with a blues/rock/alternative band and am working on an album with them.

I am looking to jam and potentially start a Latin/funk/r&b type band and am always down to work as a session musician in the studio as well as on stage.

Currently LOVING gospel music and jamming out to that along with funk and hip hop styles.

Look forward to chatting with y'all! Peace and love!

I currently own a keyboard and an acoustic guitar that I mess around with but my main instrument is the drums. I love the different textures and sounds from cymbals so I own about 12 and change it up every show!
