Damien’s passion for folk music started at the age of 5 when he became a regular at the infamous Orchard Gardens Folk Club, Norfolk where folk legends such a Walter Pardon and Tony Hall were resident.
His 11-year solo career was put on hold in 2000 while he developed the critically acclaimed Demon Barbers along with Folk & Hip Hop theatre productions Time Gentlemen Please, The Lock In and most recently QUEST.
Damien is now going back to his roots to work on a new repertoire for a more intimate and traditional set. Damien & The O-Men will be releasing their debut EP in 2019 along with promotional tracks in the next few weeks.
