Biography

Damion Gallegos life experiences have given him the chops of a master entertainer on stage as well as in the studio. Former frontman of Oakland CA's Thrash-Funk band Fungo Mungo Damion Gallegos has created a new band with skilled players RJF'ski on drums, Toho Saunders on bass, and Erik Smyth on guitar.

Prior to forming the band it was only Damion and RJF'ski with Damion writing, singing, engineering and doing the graphics for the debut CD.

Utilizing the production skills acquired with his self-produced kBRANDOW CD Damion's skills have been in demand at his Oakland studio where he's been working with a wide range of artists like Flipper, Silky, Black Pineapple, blah blah blah and other Bay area artists.

His work with Ed Burns on the soundtrack to 'Violets' (iTunes only movie) as well as his work on the iTunes Cover(RED) project have really shown his wide range of skills.

Ed's wife, supermodel Christy Turlington says: “I discovered this band when I heard their song "LOST" on the soundtrack to one of my husband's films. INXS was a big part of my young adulthood and "Never Tear Us Apart" was a beautiful showcase for Michael's voice. KBrandow's cover brings back a lot of memories."

"When you are a createiperson you need a solid foundation, RJ, Toho, and Eric give me the foundation and freedom I need to let loose and be all I can be." Says Damion.

Always creating something, Damion writes, produces, engineers, arranges, and does the graphics.

An accomplished storyteller both on and off stage Damion is a true entertainer and kBRANDOW are true Rock n' Roll.

Using his troubled childhood and the passing of his mother from a tragic car accident Damion went into a period of introspection. kBRANDOW was the result of this period of introspection.

Get ready for kBRANDOW, they came to get down.

HERE AND NOW
WE COME TWO
NO ONE'S HOME
NO ONE'S HERE BUT ME
I USED TO THINK
THAT I WOULD COME ALONG
AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I USED TO HOPE
BUT NOW I KNOW
THAT I WAS ONLY WISHING
NOW AND THEN
WE ALL STRAY
NO YOU CAN'T
HOLD ON
NO YOU WON'T
GET AWAY

HERE AND NOW
SOMETHING IS CALLING OUT
I'VE KNOWN ABOUT
SOMEONE IS TRYING
WHY CAN'T I HELP OUT
SOMETHING IS CALLING OUT
LOST, LOST, LOST

LOST ON THE EARS
THAT SEEMS TO NEED IT MOST
PARASITES SUCKS THE LIFE
FROM THE HOST
CHOPPED DOWN THE FOREST
WATCH THEM DIE
ACID RAIN COMING DOWN
FROM THE SKY
DO YOU REALLY WANT TO
SAVE THE WORLD?
PUMPING HORMONES IN THE FOOD
LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS
ON THE INTERNET
GROWING UP TO QUICK
GREENHOUSE EFFECT
MR. PRESIDENT
OH

ARMAGEDDON
GOD AND MAN
CHURCH AND STATE
WHERE DO WE STAND?
ON THE SHORES OF TIME
WITH A BOTTLE IN MY HAND
PRAYING THAT THE MESSAGE
WON'T GET LOST
LIKE MARTIN LUTHER
HE GOT
LOST, LOST, LOST
MAHAT MAGANDHI
HE GOT
LOST,LOST, LOST
HARRIET TUBMAN
SHE GOT
LOST ,LOST,LOST,LOST

HERE AND NOW
SOMETHING IS CALLING OUT
I'VE KNOWN ABOUT
SOMEONE IS TRYING
WHY CAN'T I HELP OUT
SOMEONE IS CRYING OUT
I'VE KNOWN ABOUT
SOMETHING IS CALLING OUT

Okay

SHE AWOKE IN THE MORNING
A LITTLE STAR
WHO'D RATHER BE THE SUN
OPENED HER EYES
SURPRISED
WHEN SHE REALIZED
WHAT THE NIGHT HAD DONE
IT'S TOO LATE
CALL IT FATE
TO GET WHAT YOU WISHED FOR
YOU ARE THE DAY
YOU HAVE YOUR WAY
LET THE FLOWERS
LOVE YOU MORE

SO PUT ME AWAY
WE ALL BREAK DOWN
THAT'S OKAY
WHEN YOU'RE AROUND

THAT'S OKAY
HEY, AND THAT'S ALRIGHT
YEAH, AND THAT'S OKAY
THAT'S ALRIGHT

TAKE A LOOK AROUND YOU
AT LEAST YOU GOT YOUR FRIENDS
DO YOU REMEMBER?
I FORGOT HOW TO PRETEND
BUT I COULD STILL BELIEVE
THAT DREAMS COULD COME TRUE
CAUSE I HAVE YOU
AND YOU'LL SEE

THROW IT AWAY
WELL WE ALL BREAK DOWN
BUT THAT'S OKAY
SOME THINGS ARE LOST
SOME THINGS ARE FOUND
THAT'S OKAY
PUT ME AWAY
WELL WE ALL BREAK DOWN
HEY, THAT'S OKAY
YOU'VE GOT TO LEARN
TO LET IT
LET IT OUT
LET IT OUT
AND YOU'LL SEE

AND THAT'S OKAY
HEY, AND THAT'S ALRIGHT
THAT'S OKAY, YEAH

THE MORE I LOOK AROUND
THE MORE IT HURTS
AND EVERY MOMENT SPENT
FOR ALL IT'S WORTH
I'M OKAY
YEAH, I'M ALRIGHT
THAT'S OKAY

PUT ME AWAY
WELL WE ALL BREAK DOWN
THAT'S OKAY
SOME THINGS ARE LOST
SOME THINGS ARE FOUND
BUT THAT'S OKAY
WE ALL BREAK DOWN
THAT'S OKAY
YOU'VE GOT TO LEARN
TO LET IT
LET IT OUT
LET IT OUT
AND YOU'LL SEE

YOU'LL BE OKAY
HEY, AND THAT'S ALRIGHT
AND THAT'S OKAY
YEAH,
I'M OKAY
YOUR OKAY
WE'RE OKAY
HEY, WAIT A MINUTE
I'LL MEET YOU IN A MINUTE
WHEW,
MORE I LOOK AROUND
THE MORE IT HURTS
AND EVERY MOMENT SPENT
FOR ALL IT'S WORTH
AND THAT'S OKAY
YEAH, AND THAT'S ALRIGHT
IT'S ALRIGHT
IT'S ALRIGHT
IT'S ALRIGHT
