More about Dammien:
“His sound is inspired by great boundary pushers like Marvin Gaye, Prince, D’Angelo, Pharrell, and Outkast. Dammien was born in Philladelphiawhere he was influenced by the church. His mother, who was a gospel singer in the church, introduced Dammien to the city’s incredible history of R&B and soul. However, he then moved to Canada spending time in Montreal and Vancouver, and now Halifax, where he has been for almost the last twenty years. This album marks Dammien’s return to music after a near death surfing experience in Costa Rica. Dammien says the experience opened him up. He felt lighter as a person, which translated into how he approached his music. The result is his most free-flowing and inspired work to date.”
