Southern California based rock musician Jesse Damon is rocking fans around the globe! The world renowned artist is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and front man for the popular melodic hard rock band Silent Rage.
Jesse's story starts back in the glory days of the 80's with his hard rock band Silent Rage. He's best known for his extraordinary lead singing and stellar guitar work on the MTV hit video Rebel With a Cause.
Silent Rage has released four critically acclaimed albums including Don’t Touch Me There, their 1989 Simmons Records/RCA Records release. The strength of this album led to the band opening for Black Sabbath on their North American tour.
During this time in his career he formed a lifelong friendship with Gene Simmons of KISS. He has even co-written songs with Gene including Thou Shalt Not from the KISS album Revenge for which Jesse was presented an RIAA Gold Album Award.
Jesse’s first 3 solo albums are a mix of well-crafted melodic rock songs and intense ballads. The musical pathway of his life has been influenced by some of the biggest artists in rock music including Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Foreigner, Y&T and Whitesnake ..... just to name a few.
Since about 2010, and between albums, Jesse has been playing live gigs in a blues infused 3 piece rock band called Electric Caravan. The band also features Kurt Markham (former drummer of Iron Butterfly and Overkill)
and Chris Tanori on bass.
2013 saw the release of Jesse's album Temptation in the Garden of Eve. The CD featured 11 new tracks laden with huge hooks and unforgettable choruses, all co-written by Jesse and acclaimed AOR melodic rocker Paul Sabu, who also produced the album. Jesse and Paul were joined by drummer Pete Newdeck (Eden's Curse) and keyboardist Eric Ragno to round out the line-up. The CD was a top seller for it's label, AOR Heaven, and garnered countless rave reviews in popular rock press outlets.
2016 finds Jesse fresh out of the studio, once again partnering with producer Paul Sabu. He will be releasing the efforts of these recording sessions with his brand new 6th solo album, Southern Highway. The album features 10 brand new songs.
Jesse has redefined his sound with a southern blues style straight out of Nashville, but still maintaining his high standards for melodic sensibility.
