Biography

 

Damien Rattler is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician from Toronto, Ontario. The spirit of his soul-inspired sound is deeply saturated in roots music- fusing both classic and modern styles. Damien Rattler released his first EP in August 2015 and five singles in 2016 alongside rhythm and blues band The Electric Soul Circus (guitarist Christopher Bove, bassist Mike Policicchio, drummer David Bove and keyboardist Patrick Albernaz). There is a little bit of everything in his melting pot of music- from deep lyric ballads, funky backbone grooves, electrifying guitars, upbeat riff rock & roll, articulate lines, storytelling country/folk, raw-edgy soulful vocals and raunchy blues. Characterized by his powerful live performance energy, Damien Rattler has wowed audiences far and wide.
