Grammy-winning producer Damon Elliott is returning as solo-recording artist NomaD with new release Grown Tingz on NomaD Crew/Mensch House Records out September 28 at all digital outlets. Grown Tingz was inspired by life challenges and breaking through it all, and features a stellar line-up of reggae, soul and mainstream artists including Fiji, Eli Mac, Hirie, Josh Tatofi & Maoli, Chardonnay, Morgan Heritage, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Mya among others
“Grown Tingz was inspired by life, growing up and the challenges that we all face when we become adults – fear, anger, self-doubt, a heart attack, insecurity and so on. When you finally have your breakthrough and you get that feeling of knowing that you are all grown – that what Grown Tingz is all about”
Elliott, who was nominated for “Best Break Out Artist” this year for iHeart Radio’s inaugural “Island Music Awards,” reinvented himself as NomaD in 2016 after suffering a heart attack. The health scare prompted his move from LA to Hawaii after realizing his true calling: to awaken others through music. He founded his label NomaD Crew, signing legendary Fijian Reggae artist George “Fiji” Veikoso, pioneer of the Pacific Island sound, who helped break NomaD’s first single “Take It All” as producer. “Take It All” hit #1 on iHeart Radio’s Island 98.5 and 93.1’s Da Pa’lna for four consecutive weeks and maintained a top 5 spot for several more weeks.
NomaD’s single “Perfect Timing” off Grown Tingz is among the most requested songs on Island 98.5’s Top 5 at 5.
All songs on Grown Tingz were mixed by Damon Elliott at NomaD Crew Studios in Honolulu, HI. All songs were mastered by Andy Kravitz at Studio 4 West Recording in Venice Beach, CA.
