D. White

Back to Player  

From a family with music roots, Dame lost his uncle, Sunny Joe White - WXKS Kiss 108 Boston - to a heart attack in 1996. Sunny Joe was 1985's National Radio Program Director of the Year. When he passed Sunny was starting a record label with the infamous, Quincy Jones, and even then Damion White, was a 13 yr old A&R. Predating his rap career, as then Damion the 2 sport star athlete, he was just a passionate fan of music with an ear for what people wanted to hear trying to do the family proud. A few years later after rocking party after party with freestyle prowess (on command that is) Dame's career as an artist was born in late 2004 when Damion tore his ACL, and traded the cleats and sneaks for a pen and a pad. Since then he has been perfecting his craft and his brand, recording one studio album, Birth of a Universe (Independent), in 2008 out in LA. Seen on Perez Hilton's celebrity blog in July 2008, for an "I Kissed a Girl Remix" music video (YouTube), Damion is now working on several mixtapes, a new album, and pushing towards that break into the industry's recognizable personalities category. "I do music 'cause I relate to folks," he says. "I just want the platform to tell people what they want to hear, and what they should hear." He doesn't do it for the fame, though he says he would embrace it and use it for positive impact. White sounds like no one but has drawn comparisons, to OutKast, LL Cool J, Nas, T.I., Jay-Z and Kanye West. His style is second to none and his songs reach a wide audience as he has rocked crowds on all 3 coasts. He currently resides in Austin, TX but spends time in ATL with is brother E. Miles (@Milesanova) who co-wrote Bottoms Up and co-produced Love Faces for Trey Songz. Check for the homey Dame on Twittter, and look out for him to be blaring through a radio/rocking a stage near you soon!
