Who is Damez? Although he resides in Atlanta, Mississippi’s own is breaking down barriers before he’s even all the way in the door. Not being scared to “over-share” in his lyrics, Damez makes sure he stands out by wearing his heart on his sleeve. From songs about the loss of his brother to owning his sexuality in a homophobic industry, this up and coming artist is already paving the way for those who don’t have the courage to be themselves unapologetically. However, everything isn’t always personal, “dark,” or heavy; when it’s time to turn up, he has a track for that too.
