DAMON CASTILLO BAND
Damon lives in San Luis Obispo, a town on the central coast of California. Oprah and National Geographic said it was the happiest place in the country, so you know it’s true. He operates out of Laurel Lane, a studio he put together with his friends on the south side of town.
Damon just released his new album "Mess Of Me". He wrote and produced it and had help with some mixes from nine-time Grammy Award-winner F. Reid Shippen. Aaron Sterling (John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, Gavin Degraw) played some drums on it, and longtime band mates, Larry Kim (sax) and Kristian Ducharme (keys) also contributed.
SHARED THE STAGE
He has shared the stage with Train, Chicago, The Temptations, Robben Ford, Jackson Browne, Chris Isaak and many more.
“Mess of Me” is the follow up to 2011’s “Live At The Mission” and 2009’s “Laurel Lane”, an album produced by Grammy-Award winner Ross Hogarth. Guests on “Laurel Lane” include, Sheile E., Rami Jaffe (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters), Sean Hurley (John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Vertical Horizon) and Lee Thornberg (Tower of Power, Supertramp).
