A child prodigy from Adelaide, Australia, Damien Fernandez is a prolific recording artist, producer and live performer who’s shared the stage with some of hip-hop’s biggest names.
Twenty-nine-year-old Damien Fernandez was just 10 when his fascination with music turned to obsession, his family shutting down the bedroom lights while young Damien continued to practice guitar for hours, in the dark.
Inspired by his uncle, Ian Fernandez, a “ridiculous guitarist” in Damien’s words, the younger Fernandez set about spending some time in a local school of the arts before discovering how to set his own pace in his own way.
Damien’s Free MP3 of the Day, “Missing Pieces,” is on the dance floor tip, branding a killer rap on the girl over a pulsing old school house beat, touches of Prince and the Dazz Band throughout. Hands in the air, everybody, hands in the air.
