Damien Horne is a soulful union of musical history. He’s a boundary-obliterating singer/songwriter whose artistry unites R&B melodies, catchy pop hooks, and distinctive elements of hip-hop, soul, and rock to change the atmosphere of contemporary music with a uniquely uplifting message.
Damien was raised in Hickory, North Carolina by a single mother and is one of twelve children. After high school graduation, he got on a greyhound bus and followed his musical dreams to Hollywood. He soon found himself homeless. It was a beginning that leads most men to destruction. It led Damien to redemption when he was rescued by The Covenant House. A year and a half later, he found himself back in North Carolina, this time, with a band, Stellar Tree. Eventually Damien and his band relocated to Nashville.
He has just completed his first full-length album, produced by Big Kenny of Big and Rich. When asked about the project Big Kenny offered, “I have never met a more important artist for our times, completely real, unique, deserving and uplifting. I cannot stop until the world hears his music. He writes, he sings, he plays piano and guitar, he dances like ‘the man’ and you know it when he backflips off the stage in a way that would make James Brown proud.”
