Biography

Dammien Alexander the Philadelphia native has been spending the past 5 years writing and recording in Canada.
His first release “Beautifully” was a self-produced effort which was subsequently licensed to the Toronto based independent label Curve Music to be distributed by Universal Records Canada. Released digitally in the summer of 2007, but not followed by any recognizable promotion, Alexander has had to be content with a cult-like buzz that consistently garners respect for all of those who know of the debut album.

In 2008 he releases “We Are Who We Have Been Waiting For” (Live Village Records). His songs have been called “perfect” (John Book “the run off groove #162”), with a distinctive soul influenced urban rock sound. The new album is being serviced to 340 college and AAA stations through The Planetary Group, marking his first actual US release. Impact for radio was April 2008, following this campaign with an International tour in the US, UK and Asian markets from May 2008 to Sept, 2008. With marketing and distributing the video for track #3 “Closer In” shot on 16 mm film to Much Music (Canada), BET (United States) and digitally on Asian and European websites.

The album will be distributed mail order to HMV outlets, digitally (Puretracks and Itunes), and physical distribution thru CDBaby.com

Lyrics

Love Jones

Written By: Dammien Alexander/Sam Nijjar

(Whistle)
You’re bad but you feel so good, to be next to you
Is all that I want, I get mad I know I should leave you,
But I can’t I just can’t,

I put up with you cause I’m scared to be alone,
Bottle of Jack and I’m staring at the phone it’s 2 am
I’m going to the Liquor dome to find a pretty young thang
And bring her home

(Whistle)

You’re crazy, but you’re so damn hot, I forgot you drive me insane
You’re amazing, But I’m not, gonna let you drive me to drinking
I do that enough on my own

I put up with you cause I’m scared to be alone,
Bottle of Jack and I’m staring at the phone it’s 2 am
I’m going to the Liquor dome to find a pretty young thang
And bring her home

Oooooh, you use to be the sunshine of my day
Oooooh, you used to be the light of my life
I wanted to be your everything
But you gave me nothing baby, nothing baby

Love Jones Deep in my bones (I’ve got that Love Jones)
Love Jones deep in my bones (deep deep in my bones)
Love Jones deep in my bones (underneath the skin baby)
Love Jones deep in my bones

I put up with you cause I’m scared to be alone,
Bottle of Jack and I’m staring at the phone it’s 2 am,
I’m going to the Liquor Dome to find a pretty young thang
And bring her home
(whistle) end
