Damon Cicero Scott
Damon, a Chicago native, burst onto the music scene with his rendition of the Adele song, which he performed daily in the IRT Subway station on 86th Street. Due to the hundreds of thousands of hits on You tube, etc, he is on his way to becoming an unsigned phenomenon. The attention of an army of fans has led to his determination to produce his own album which is expected to be a success and fame imminent. His exciting, rough voice restores the much needed sexy heart throb sound that is missing in today’s music. His ability to sing any genre makes Damon C. Scott a rare commodity.
His first intro into learning an instrument himself came when he started to play the piano. Later he began singing, songwriting and producing, a decision which he never looked back from. He now plays all percussion instruments, becoming famous in the subway as “the man that sings with the drum”.
The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up in a talented musical family meant that Damon was always surrounded by different forms of music. His mother Sherry Scott is the first female member of the superstar band “EARTH WIND AND FIRE” and exposed him to a wealth of music as a child, all of which influenced his development.
After realizing that making music had become a passion, he began to showcase his talent in various venues, including but not limited to “Showtime at the Apollo”, hosted an open mike at Harlem’s own 2110, the Tenth Rail, Theater 60 in Soho, etc., making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. He was quickly noted for the unique style and his popularity began to grow. He went on to join several groups such as “Special Blend” touring Florida and performing at the Ebony Music Awards. He also has done collaboration with David Levy with his group “Out to Lunch”.
He is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include Sam Cook, Bob Marley, The Police, Ray Charles, John Coltrane and Stevie Wonder as his biggest influences.
Surprising to him a large number of people recognized him from his You tube video. From here London called. A track he had done vocals on two years prior had been re-mixed and released on November 4th 2013 and by November 10th the track “Look Right Through” had hit #1 in the UK bumping Rhianna and M&M from their spot. The song stayed in the top 20 chart for over 20 weeks and has been dubbed “House Music Anthem” of the year.
Damon currently resides in Atlanta, Ga where he is currently producing new music and actively recruiting new upstart artist. New music is in the very near future as he is working on his new CD and New Release just dropping from Card Board Boxes "No More Lies".
