Biography

Arising soulfully from the east, a new day that's bright, honest and shining has emerged. The sincerely emotional talent of Damondaye owes its strength to his spiritual awareness, strong family ties, deep love of music, and the streets.

With his roots in poetry and doubling as an emcee, this Connecticut native, has honed his skills and musical appreciation to produce a sound all his own. With inspiration from the genius of artists such as Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Ray Charles and Curtis Mayfield, Damondaye has created music that is mood altering, that is poignant and simply beautiful. His gift traces back to his grandmother who the entire Sawyer family affectionately called, "Mimi" and her strength as a southern women raising five sons on her own. Condensing the circle of family inspiration, his father shared his love of sound and harmonies, having belonged to a quartet with his siblings, called the Sawyer Brothers, a group whose talents led them to local tours, competitions and appearances on the famed Apollo stage.

Having performed on stages in many U.S. cities, his abilities are finally achieving the recognition deserved. For example, audiences in Philadelphia and New York gather in droves for a bit of the light he extends in his performances. His show is enthusiastic, energetic and touching. His accomplishments professionally are evidenced in his ability to single-handedly write, produce and execute instrumentally and vocally. For some artists this journey lacks dedication and devotion and so the product becomes contrived and apparently false. But blessed with a natural gift, the music of Damondaye is believable and expressed genuinely.
