Damon Dae
Any singer worth their salt was influenced by the greatest entertainers of eras gone by. Most have taken
these inspirations to unique heights of flattery and imitation but nothing more. Its time for a new day.
Damon Dae. Original. Uniquely his own.
With his easily identifiable sultry tenor voice, he is destined to find his place in history amongst the best.
He has the ability-- a gift really-- to take a melody and make you soar, make you submit and make you
sing along.
Born in Sioux City, Iowa, eight year old Damon, the youngest of four, and his family, moved to Fort
Worth, Texas. This is where he was first influenced by attending his big brother Raymond’s band
audition. Now in Los Angeles, Damon is not only an experienced singer but has branched out as a
songwriter & producer.
Not one to hide behind studio tracks, give Damon a microphone and a live audience and see a complete
entertainer. When he sings it, he means it. He'll make you dance up a sweat then melt you with a ballad.
Leaving you as raw emotion sensitive to the touch.
Damon embraces his influences of Jeffery Osborne, Freddie Jackson, James Ingram, Luther Vandross,
Peobo Bryson, Michael McDonald but, most of all, his songs and voice are of the original Damon Dae. He
has weathered the trials and tribulations of the average up-and-coming performer and has emerged as
something more. He's a polished professional who's ready for his close-up. Giving you something you
can feel.

Jed Ojeda
Founder of The Mint in 1990, Jed helped ignite an otherwise non-existent music scene in Los Angeles,
helping the likes of Macy Gray, Ben Harper, The Wallflowers, and many, many others to become the
artists they are today. Jed also is a musician/guitarist/songwriter who joined musical forces with Damon
Dae to create “Resurrection Road”. The mission? To resurrect Soul music for soul. Originally a blues
player, Jed was able to absorb the many styles that made their way through the hallowed stage of The
Mint over the years, to create a sound of his own. The result is the fresh soulful sound you will hear with
RESURRECTION ROAD.
How Mean
How Mean
Lead singer/guitarist Nick Foy and drummer Sam Cook recently teamed up to form How Mean after a late night, half-baked idea came to life. Originally from Mass, Foy and Cook strive to offer audiences more of a show than a concert, packing a greater punch than anyone would expect from a two man act.
Drawing influence from bands like Led Zeppelin and Brand New, How Mean’s way of reimagining familiar classics makes every song sound new again, combined with an equal dose of clever, crowd-pleasing originals which, according to Cook, fall under the genre of “gentle pressure.” As they continue to play bigger shows, they look forward to expanding their act across the Los Angeles music scene. “We’re not here to make a living,” Foy says. “We’re here to make a killing.”
Illunis
Illunis
Illunis is a 5 piece indie/folk/rock band started in late 2015. With a distinct style with warm finger-picked riffs, tasteful and rhythmic lead guitar melodies, and a broad ranged vocal punch, they strive to push musical elements, create a dynamic listening experience, and impact the lives and worlds of listeners in a positive way.
