A multi instrumentalist, a sound engineer and a powerful voice all wrapped up in one, Damien McFly effortlessly blends the acoustic elements of folk with a rock inspired flair for songwriting.
Damien McFly is the stage name for Damiano Ferrari, a driven, passionate and charismatic singer from Padova, Italy. Dedicated to live performance, he has played over 300 gigs throughout Europe in two years and in the summer of 2014 he crossed the Atlantic to play gigs in Chicago, Indianapolis and Nashville.
He has toured France, Belgium, Holland and Germany as well as gracing the Hard Rock Rocks festival Acoustic Stage in Edinburgh and the Wigwam stage at Carfest.
A powerful collection of heartfelt songs, Damien’s debut album Parallel Mirrors (Oct 2015) channels the best of Mumford & Sons andThe Lumineerssound, both bands having been a huge influence on him as he developed as a songwriter. Each instrument on the release has been recorded unplugged, utiliing the natural ambience and reverb of specific recording locations to pick up the warmth of live performance on microphone.
