Damon Grant on SoundBetter

I am a well versed percussionist in several styles and genres. I can add a vast array of colors and textures to enhance your existing grooves or work with you to create new ones. I will provide professional quality tracks (stems) for your songs/album/film score and more!

I am a professional percussionist specializing in Pop music, with a background in Afro-Caribbean instruments and genres. I have been touring with and recording for people for over 25 years. I have worked (toured and recorded) with artists that have won Grammys, Tonys, Emmys, AMAs, Oscars, and more. I have played the Olympics twice, performed for three presidents and had music on film and TV. I will work with you to find the right sounds for your project, stay within your budget and turn it around in a timely manner to your required specifications (MP3/WAV, etc). I also have the ability to film myself recording and send you video files (MP4/MOV) if you should request that upgrade.

I look forward to hearing from and working with you!
