Biography

“The first time i heard JD sing I felt like I was polishing up my boat in Zihuatanejo, ready to set sail and free of all the cares on this crazy planet. . . “  Tom Freund (Co-producer and musician extraordinaire)

There’s nothing like the feel of a favorite old t-shirt paired with a worn in pair of jeans. Some of the best things in life move into their prime as they get older, making them more enjoyable, more valuable. And so it is with the music of Jason Damato, a California native and a true crusader of all things good.

Jason grew up in San Diego, California where he was raised by his mother and preacher-stepfather in a strict Pentecostal Christian family. As a teenager, he often found himself at odds with his parent’s strict Christian values. At the age of eighteen, he left home to go his own way and pursue a career in music. After choosing the latter, Jason was left homeless with nothing but his clothes, a guitar and his sense of purpose. During that time he made his way to Los Angeles, where he spent every waking moment writing songs that reflected on his situation and the environment around him as he began to pursue his dream of making a career in music.
Citing influences from a wide variety of music genres including Ben Harper, Ella Fitzgerald, U2 and Jeff Buckley, Damato puts everything his soul possesses into his music. Jason is proficient at turning life’s lessons and pains into beautiful songs, but he has a natural way of moving through serious moments to a plane where he can relax in the simplicity of life.
