Who Am I?
I am DAMIEN, an alternative electro-rock artist from Ipswich, Australia.
Ultimately, I am also just a human being, like you.
I am curious, compassionate, complex, dynamic, reflective, relational, sexual, introverted, empathetic, imperfect, sensitive, gentle and a little insecure. I enjoy learning and creating and love music, art and culture. I love to read and to sing and to try new things like yoga, float tanking, long boarding and sky diving. I am a minimalist in my living, but still value the aesthetic of space. On the same day I may watch cricket, Mary Poppins and Brooklyn Nine Nine (although I don’t have a tv), and listen to Billie Eilish, Nirvana, Metallica, Bjork and Chopin. I am a backyard philosopher, theologian, and drinker of non-alcoholic beer. I want to meet diverse and beautiful people, form strong, lasting connections and enjoy life’s many sublime pains and pleasures with others. Fundamentally, I’m a little boy inside who just wants to be seen and heard...
...and all that, and more, manifests itself in how I create.
