ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael Dean Damron is the real deal. He has been playing music most of his life and you can tell by the raw throated raspiness of his voice that he has spent his share of time in smokey bars screaming his soul out. His new album, “Plea From A Ghost” is available now from Denver based label Suburban Home Records and we highly recommend it! It’s jam-packed with some of the finest heartfelt outlaw country songs you could ever hope to hear.-Buzzbin Magazine

Sounding like the Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood with a really bad throat infection, and coming across as stubbornly liberal as Steve Earle, Mike D. rasps his way through eleven songs. -Pop Matters

Damron's whiskey-and-smoke-fed voice consistently fits his mood -- backwards-looking, devastatingly cynical, but staunchly independent and alive and kicking at the same time -- and the music follows suit, always in step but never lacking variety. -Splendid Magazine-

Damron continually succeeds, however, in enveloping his inner turmoils and outspoken observations in compelling, important music. Raw, haunting, drunkenly wild, innocently gentle; a Damron creation can possess any of these tags, or all of them.

Plea from a ghost
It’s a rare thing when a songwriter can writes something that conveys its emotions so clearly that not only can it make you feel something, it can convey with perfect clarity the feelings that songwriter was feeling when he/she wrote it. A song is a rarity, an album is almost unheard of and a songbook, which Damron seems to be amassing, requires a self-awareness and willingness to expose oneself that I simply can not relate to. When you listen to Plea From A Ghost, it’s no wonder Micah Schnabel (Two Cow Garage) and Michael Dean Damron are such good friends. They’re essentially the same artist, separated by a few decades worth of life experience, breakups, breakdowns, whiskey and pain.

in a moment of weakness/i sold my soul
Portland, Oregon‘s Michael Dean Damron and his band I Can Like Any Sonofabitch In The House are members of a select group of songwriters and bands who are keeping the art of storytelling alive. Take me to a clearing in the woods, a campfire, a rucksack, a case of beer, a few guitars and Michael, Ben Nichols, Jason Isbell, Mike Cooley, Jon Snodgrass, Chad Price, Timothy Showalter, the Kneiser’s and Micah Schnabel and I’ll show you something Coachella and Bonnaroo can’t touch. These are the working musicians. If you really want to know what is happening in this country of ours, don’t turn to CNN. Don’t look to Kerouac to find out what’s happening on the road, dude died 42 years ago! If you really want to know what is going on beyond those dual pane windows, beyond the buildings, the city limits and county lines, up and over those mountains, you need look no further than these modern day raconteurs.

I really wanted to recommend this album based on my experience with the vinyl and a glass of whiskey, but my favorite local label, Suburban Home Records, has informed me it might be a couple weeks until I have the physical product in my hand and I am enjoying these tales of lost souls, goddamn devils and the dark of the night too much to wait. If you like ICLASOBITH, you will like this album. It’s striped down to the bare essentials, as you’d expect from a solo album, but I dare you to test it’s strength. My money is on Michael single-handedly licking any son of a bitch in the house who steps to him!
