PRESS:

-Rolling Stone Magazine (Italy, Oct.09) wrote: "....Damen performs powerful and expressively and his performance involves and convinces....".

- CityBeat , Cincinnati
With a unique voice Damen Samuel creates unhurried slabs of candle-lit melancholy with minimal accompaniment.

The singer/songwriter recently released his first long-player "A Gypsy"s Lullaby" , which recalls the more adventurous Folk experimenters of yesteryear as well as the more recent revivalists of the same sound.
DIG: Tim Buckley , stripped down Antony and the Johnsons , Nina Simone hits the coffeehouse circuit.

-Sonia Cardia, Viva La Radio Network (Italy)
Young, handsome and very talented Damen Samuel is a singer/songwriter of german origins who's work is full of romanticism & poetry. He's always on the move and he uses his travels as inspiration for his music.
Currently in Cagliari (Italy) to play at the Karel Music Expo, Damen Samuel is showing his artistic growth on his latest release "A Gypsy's Lullaby".

His name and his music are being noticed because of who he is, sensitive, able to create great "atmosphere" with a voice that warms the soul and proving to be an artist with talent and personality.
