Biography

When you ask someone, "do they know any musicians?” most people who say yes, are talking about people who play or have the ability to play music. If you know Damien you know a true musician, someone who has literally poured everything into his band. Damien has sacrificed his all to have the best people, truest reasons, and boldest sound. From the age of 4 Damien was anticipating a life surrounded by Music . Sure it hasn’t all been Roses and Butterflies but the highs have far out weighed the lows.
After a chance meeting with Mark Gable (Choirboys’) and Erik Weideman (Nineteen27) a friendship was formed that saw Mark and Erik flying on a monthly basis to join Damien's then band "Gift Box" on stage at sold out shows. Damien went on to change the name of his act to "TDCB" and now more than ever weaves his Charismatic sound and nature onto many stages not only in Western Australia but nationally and internationally. Damien is traveling with a 4 piece band and still delivers one of the most heart felt performances you may ever see .This will give you an idea of the mark he is leaving

The Damien Cripps Band
Monday comes, shopping’s done, I guess ill put the T.V on
You will make it, and then you’ll break it
In and out on the phone, can’t get you girl on your own
You’ll be talking and ill be walking
Then there’s you with someone new, I can’t believe you’re actually gone
You were faking and I was mistaken

Bring me Pictures of you
Three red candles and a little perfume
Bring me pitchers of wine
A little Jack Daniels, tequila on the side
\
Monday Comes shopping’s done I guess ill put the T.V on
Your loves been stolen, did you own it?
Friday comes the weekends on and someone’s got the Radio on
You were faking I was mistaken

Chorus

Someone saw you now they adore you
Its kind a like your running from the sun
Love will find you its right behind you
And im putting your name on the card
Baby

Chorus
