Hello, I’m Damien Lamar Robinson. I’m a Jacksonville-based creative professional, technologist, singer-songwriter, vocalist & ASCAP writer/publisher member. I am also a graphic designer, web producer and seasoned social media enthusiast.
I work as the Operations Director for Friends of Hemming Park, act board member of Party, Benefit & Jam (PB&J), a Jacksonville-based charity series who raises money and awareness for local charities and serve as board member of Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR).
In 1995, I began taking my creativity in my own hands. This lead to the beginning of a recording career as a musician and vocalist where I perform under the name of Damien Lamar. In addition to my civil and community engagement, I am also an active lead singer of The Groove Coalition band as well as a supporting vocalist for R&B recording artist, B.DeVINE. I have had the privilege of either sharing the stage or recording with some very talented artists, musicians and bands from Tommy Bridgewater, Ezekiel Haynes, Erik Ievins, Jordan Buffaloe, Leon Timbo, EvenStill, Kameron Corvet, saxophonist Tracy Morris, Shawn Lightfoot, Herd of Watts, Chris Williams, MJBaker, The Bernie Worrell Orchestra and Akia Uwanda to name a few.
In 2012, I gained a leading role in Stage Aurora Theatrical Company‘s broadway production of “The Wiz” as The Tin Man.
During Black History Month 2014, I performed as a “reader theater member” in Nokturnal Escape Entertainment‘s production of “Before Email: Celebrating African-American Historical Figures & the Lost Art of Letter Writing”.
Though, I have a love for theatre and the arts, I have always had an affinity for music and as a 20-year recording artist and have self-released two full-length albums: Convinced EP & :/waiting_, a myriad of mixtapes and two digital singles: LifeTime and Am I Wrong?, all of which are all available in online music services.
My complete discography can be found on Bandcamp. In 2010, I also as wrote, composed, arranged and produced my first electronic score entitled the new adventures of professor:clock, which is an organically-growing music series now on its 3rd volume.
