Damon C. Brown
Damon Brown is a musician who is enthusiastically exploring the possibilities of the 6 string bass guitar. His 2008 debut CD Falling Forward captures his compositional and bass work in the modern jazz genre. Brown’s recorded works feature his playing in ways that expand his role as a bassist and leader. “I am always wanting to find creative ways to communicate with listeners through my instrument” Brown states, and he adds, “Even though I feature the bass guitar in unconventional roles, my focus is making my compositions as musical and expressive as possible.” As he draws heavily from the jazz traditions, Brown does not shy away from swinging on bass guitar even though he is an accomplished double bassist. “I have always continued to play more traditional jazz on bass guitar as well as upright and feel that bass guitar has a place in jazz music.”
