BIO


Damez is a rapper, singer, dancer, songwriter, and a rising voice in hip-hop and [black] LGBT. Primarily rap/hip-hop and R&B, he showcases his versatility through an eclectic catalog of self-penned songs including elements from other genres such as Pop and alternative. Born Damién Denzel Ross Henderson in Jackson, Mississippi, he discovered his love for music at an early age and began writing songs and performing in front of family as a child. After relocating with his family to Atlanta, Georgia when he was 6, he began to explore his artistry as he experienced his adolescent years into early adulthood, going through an unfortunate series of events such as the divorce of his parents and the horrific murder of his brother at the tender age of 17. In college, he began independently recording music and performing live shows. He has since released a number of projects and singles since his debut EP arrived via SoundCloud in 2014. Being black and LGBT in today’s challenging society has not always been an easy road for him, but he’s channeled the unique intersectionality of his life experiences in his music and hopes to be a voice for unique people everywhere.
