ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Damond Moodie started singing in a band when he was almost finished with college. His parents were alarmed when he changed majors and began writing poetry. “My Pops didn’t think I would be employable,” the singer remarks, “but the band gave me an outlet for the new found creativity that I felt, and it actually motivated me to get my degree.”

Brought up on a steady diet of Motown Soul, Hard Rock, and 80’s pop music, this Cleveland, Ohio native decided to blend his velvet thunder vocals with the rootsy but spare sounds of the acoustic guitar. Only problem was he didn’t know how to play the guitar.

Determined to develop as a performing songwriter, the newly anointed musician cut a three song demo tape, and for months drove around half of the U.S. A picture of determination, this self-taught guitar player used open mics to hone his craft and sell his product.

Eventually Damond landed in Oakland, California and is currently preparing to release the follow-up to his debut record, Fishin’ for Words. With a welcome mix of sparse acoustic tracks and superbly arranged full band pieces, the new record Daydreamer is a full-blown look into this organic troubadour’s reality. Damond Moodie will be performing around the Bay Area both solo acoustic and with the band, a six-piece outfit that brings a funky swagger and mesmerizing expertise to the often introspective and modest nature of his songs.

Who does he sound like? Comparisons have been made to Seal, Ben Harper, early Lenny Kravitz and Tracy Chapman. He calls his music alternative soul and with poetic eloquence and emotive intensity, Damond Moodie attempts to uplift, commiserate, and serenade a damaged world.

Gentry Bronson

A High-Energy Funk Soul R&B Folk Rock Gem
Damond Moodie has been on the scene in the Bay Area and Midwest for years. This CD captures him at his best. It's as if Stevie Wonder sat down with Ben Harper and said, 'Let's make God dance.' His new band is dynamic, hitting chords with jazz flavor and beats with hip hop resonance that only builds Damond's songs-as-stories. A feel good rainy Sunday afternoon album and a feel right sunny bright Summer beach album. Damn fine, Damond. Damn fine.

A great album
This is some great music from a great artist. He's unafraid to say what he means and he says/sings it in a great way. 'Blessed' and 'Messed Up' are already favorites. I don't want to use the trendy term 'neo-soul' because there's so much more to it. Listen for yourself.
