Guitar & Piano
Damiano is a guitarist and pianist from Middletown, CT. His influences span from Randy Rhoads, Ritchie Blackmore and Eddie Van Halen to Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Liberace.
Music began for Damiano at the age of 3 with classical piano lessons at the Harford Conservatory, where he was a two time Baldwin Scholarship winner as well as 2nd and 3rd place winner in the Young Artist Piano Competition for 2007 and 2009 in West Springfield, MA. He didn't pick up the guitar until the age of 11 when he heard Randy Rhoads play the solo to Revelation Mother Earth off of the Ozzy Osborne album: Tribute, dedicated to his late guitar player Randy Rhoads.
In 2014 at the age of 16, he was selected by former Ozzy drummer Brian Tichy as the winner of the Randy Rhoads Remembered "Crazy Train" Contest. Here he got to play alongside Brian, former Ozzy and Quiet Riot bassist Rudy Sarzo and Kelle Rhoads, Randy Rhoads' brother just to name a few.
In 2015, Damiano became a member of a group of young guitarists known as the Brotherhood of the Guitar, founded by rock photographer Robert M Knight which included a string endorsement from Ernie Ball.
Damiano now plays with Ozzy Osborne Tribute: Ozzy America as Randy Rhoads, 80s cover band Ratt Poison and his solo project The Damiano Christian Band where he just released his first EP and full length album: "Built in Good Value" and "At Your Majesty's Pleasure".
At the start of 2017 he was recuited by local veteran Connecticut Power Metal Band, Sacred Oath for their Twelve Bells Tour of 2017-2018.
