Escobar's claim to fame came early on in his teens when he, alongside his brother, appeared on “America’s Got Talent” as Nuttin’ but Stringz. Two urban kids from Jamaica, Queens, who later parted due to growing creative differences. After the fall, Damien is reveling in the climb. Since re-launching his career, Escobar boasts of 200K downloads from his first R&B mixtape, “Sensual Melodies”; and has more than a few notable solo headliner performances under his belt including: CBS Upfront Presentation, Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chef Awards, Indy Car Championship Awards, Major League Baseball Annual Golf Fundraiser Event, Angela Simmons “Electric Daze” Fashion Show, Russell Simmons’ Hip Hop Inaugural Ball, and corporate concerts for FRIDAYS, Walmart, Target, and more. Currently, Escobar is appreciating his journey as a fresh new artist, with the release of his high-energy, inspirational single “Freedom” which debuted on CNN.com. Damien makes it no secret that he’s determined to gain recognition for being the “dopest” violinist to crossover into mainstream music. In an industry not overpopulated by instrumentalist, the urban-rock violinist is looking to change the game. He’s a pioneer with a plan, and the future of music rest in his hands.
