Damian has played with A list Canadian acts since the 80s. I met him in 1992 at the Free Times Cafe in Toronto. He jumped up and played with me on a solo acoustic set. Ever since we've been tight.

He shoots 70s in golf. He's a martial arts expert. He knows everyone. He's the best. His guitar playing is so understated sometimes. Which is to say that he knows his place in the mix. A lot of players have difficulty with that. But Damian knows where to be and how to be there. When he comes up for a solo, it's like icicles of clarity ingrained into your forehead. I like that.
