Grammy and ASCAP award-winning producer, songwriter, DJ and recording artist Damon Sharpe is best known for his creativity behind the scenes as a producer working alongside artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Pitbull, and Alesso. But what people may not know yet, is that Damon’s skills span further than just making hits for others, and in the upcoming year, the world will learn who Damon Sharpe really is, and finally see the limitless potential of his skill that has been in the making for years.
In an industry with new artists coming out daily, Damon has already earned his stripes and proven he is not going anywhere. On the producing and songwriting front, it’s no surprise that Damon will continue to produce major hits for big names. What is surprising, however, is that now, Damon will be focusing on his own music as well, with new unreleased music set to be out in 2020. With his personal projects coming to fruition, Damon will make the transition from “behind the scenes” to in front of them. Furthermore, on the DJ front, Damon has been preparing for his big debut for years, which the world will finally see in the coming year.
In 2019, Damon had four songs out via Armada Records; highly acclaimed “Fire & Gold” with Morgan Page & VIVID, which peaked at #7 on US Dance Radio, “When In Rome” with GATTÜSO, which peaked at #6 on US Dance Radio and gained over 17M Spotify streams, “Ghost Ship” featuring Orjan Nilsen, and “Lifetime” with Zonderling and Josh Cumbee. The tracks made a dent in the Sirius BPM, Sirius Chill, iHeart Evolution, Music Choice rotations and more.
Although all four tracks are proving to be a huge success, “Lifetime” serves as the transition from Damon being behind the scenes, into the forefront of his audience and listenership, something Damon has been focused on moving toward for years. “Lifetime”, was not only written by Damon, but also tells the heart-warming personal story of the birth of his daughter and the wedding to his wife. Released via Armada Records last fall, the track was added to iHeart Evolution, Music Choice, Dance Rising, Future House Top 50, Kaskade Connect, Winter Sounds, and more, received support from Don Diablo, Lucas & Steve, Afrojack, Sam Feldt, Promise Land, Morgan Page, Alexander Popov and Martin Garrix, and has received over 3.5 million streams to date. Recently, Damon has been climbing the ranks and gaining recognition from notable industry trades such as Billboard Dance, EDM Tunes, Dancing Astronaut, just to name a few. Not only is “Lifetime” the most meaningfulpiece of work for Damon to date, but it serves as the first project that will transition him from the selfless “behind the scenes” genius that Damon has been, into the forefront as a notable name in music in “front of the scenes.” With a stacked list of projects that will further this new transition in the upcoming year, Damon is sure to make 2020 his year and inch his way into becoming a household name for sure.
His next single “Under Your Control” a collaboration with Australian DJ Dave Winnel featuring vocalist Shannon will be released March 27th on Armada Records.
