“…embark on a futile bout of lexical tail-chasing as you endeavour to find adequate adjectives with which to catalogue his stunning, burnt sugar vocals.”

- Stylus Magazine


Most well known for a brand of soul/folk songwriting that is liberal with it's cross-pollination of Americana and other roots music, Damon Aaron has also been at the intersection of the LA jazz and beat scene for many years. 

As a guitarist, he's been featured with seminal hip-hop MC Divine Styler, Ghanain Reggae singer Rocky Dawuni, and LA Ethio-Jazz favorite Ethio-Cali amongst others.  His work with Carlos Niño and jazz orchestra Build An Ark allowed him the opportunity to play with luminaries like Nate Morgan, Michael White, Big Black, and Phil Ranelin amongst others.  His vocal collaborations have included Telefon Tel AvivAnthony Valadez(KCRW), and Barbara Morgenstern.  His production work has found him making beats and composing music with Mike Simpson(Beastie Boys,Beck).

For the last several years, he's been performing a dubbed-out live show at festivals throughout Europe(Fusion,Garbicz, Lethargy) and releasing music as Contact Field Orchestra.  CFO is a multi-media project that combines found sounds, hand-built percussion, hacked toys, and tall tails.  The debut lp, “Contact Field Orchestra Vol. 1”, was released in late 2013 in partnership with acclaimed art collective HIT+RUN.   Recorded almost entirely with contact microphones, this project allowed him to explore different textures and rhythms as instrumental compositions favoring mbira, melodica, and banjos. 

Currently, he's writing and recording new vocal music for a series of ep's, and doing session work in Los Angeles.  He contributed to DJ Nobody's latest Ubiquity release, as well as The Gaslamp Killer's "Heartmath".
