Album Notes
DAMIAN QUI�NONES Father of the 'Underground Sensation', the oft-described "soulster" has been contributing a completely original NuYorican musical experience of his own design to the cultural collage of NYC, playing in venues such as Mercury Lounge, Pianos, Southpaw, Sin-e, and the Coral Room. Quinones songwriting is part 60's pop(In the vein of Gainsbourg, Bacharach, Lennon/ McCartney, Davies, and Hayes/Porter) part 70's funk(in the mold of WAR, Willie Bobo) and has elements of electronic music and Reggae as well.
His take on "Urban Folk Music' is funky, expansive and equally at home in a solo acoustic setting as it is blasting full volume with the band.
Quinones music is akin to a mix tape made from his Uncles old vinyl collection.

The Bronx native's street smart, rock & soul songwriting style has been called upon most recently by female hip-hop act Northern State on their recent release "All City" (Columbia Records).
The band is a motley crew of New York cities finest. Aside from bandleader/composer/guitarist, Quinones, Seth Johnson and Dan Laureano(drums and guitar respectively) come from New York based afro-beat outfit, Wonderland. Greg Richardson has been with the group since its inception as well as participating in side projects ranging from the South American stylings of Trio con Cuatro to the raucous rock of the Five O'Clock Heroes. Brian Higbie and, sometime member, Basil Bouris accent the music with percussive rhythms that range from afro-cuban to middle eastern.

Combining pumping beats, jagged guitars, and an audiophile's love for rare and earthy recordings, Damian is currently recording with co-producer/studio wizard Jason Martin on a follow-up to his debut album New Movements in the Old School (Soluna Records) as well as an album co-produced by guitarist/producer Dan Laureano slated for release in 2005.
