“Eclectic, broad and a little something different” — that’s how Raleigh-based blues rocker Jason Damico describes his sound.
At the age of 23, Damico has made a name for himself in the music world, winning the title of Rock Male Artist of the Year at the 2015 Carolina Music Awards. Damico and his band currently tour across the east coast of the U.S., frequenting local venues in the Sandhills area, including Drum and Quill in Pinehurst.
Damico began playing music at 5 years old as a way to cope with TTD, a subgenre of Tourette’s. The repetitive activity and stimulation that comes with playing music allowed Damico to eventually grow out of the behavior, but his love for the art persisted.
Although Damico would love to eventually play Madison Square Garden, his main goal is to touch people’s hearts with his music. “I want my music to make people think differently about things and I want to make the best art that I can while I’m here,” Damico says.
