Session Musician/Songwriter

Dave Damage on SoundBetter

I'm a session violinist and improvisational expert specializing in topline melodies for multiple genres. I am available to add melodies, harmonies, and textures to house music, techno, EDM, trance, progressive house, electronica, reggaeton, country, hard rock, hip hop and much more. I also create string soundscapes, and record from home.

Dave Damage brings a live element to a predominantly electronic music scene, blending his musical tastes and influences into a sound that meshes with progressive house, trance, tech house, EDM, hip hop, and Latin music. Given his ability to listen to a song and then play along with it, no genre is out of reach or beyond his repertoire – and his ability to improvise over almost anything has helped to cement Dave Damage as a fixture in the nightlife of Florida. This, when combined with his punk rock ethos, heavy metal aesthetic (how many violinists have you seen with a blue Mohawk, tattoos, and piercings, rocking a crowded nightclub on a hot Miami night?!), and insane work ethic, has served to put Dave Damage firmly on the map – and on stage at huge events like Ultra Music Festival, the Groove Cruise, Miami’s Swim Week and Fashion Week, and much, much more.

Dave Damage is a professional musician, and a collaborating artist who is constantly working on new music and honing his sound. Originally playing in a live hip hop band, Dave has turned his attention to the recording studio and now has appeared on a variety of projects. With a recording set-up at his home, Dave can easily record and manipulate the violin to suit any project and genre, and Dave has set his sights on digital collaboration.
