Mitchell’s music is inspired by mid 60’s Beatles mainly the writing of Paul McCartney with aspects of his music also reminiscent at times of late 70’s classic rock radio giants in particular ‘Comes a Time’ era Neil Young and ‘Aja’ era Steely Dan.
Damon – a songwriting, singing, southpaw six-stringer – recently appeared on stage as a guest guitarist/vocalist with America on their timeless hit, “Horse With No Name.” Furthermore renowned drummer, Tris Imboden (Chicago, CS&N),i s one of many notable guest artists on Damon’s CD – proving that this young artist’s respect for his influencers is clearly reciprocated. “There’s unity amongst players within multiple genres on this record,” Damon understates!
“Damon Mitchell offers a no frills and very honest insight on this record as to who he is both musically and personally. A joy to listen to and a pleasure to work with.” – Tris Imboden (Kenny Loggins, Chicago, Richard Marx)
