Read what has been said about Jason Damico by people in the music industry:
"Jason Damico is talented far beyond his years. I first met him when he was about 15 and was impressed by his skill level, his confidence, his professionalism, and his maturity. Whether he's playing rock, jazz, or something in between, Jason delivers an amazing performance. It has been a pleasure watching him grow and develop as a musician and singer. His vocals, timing, and delivery are reminiscent of a young Billy Joel. Rarely do I meet young artists who have the whole package and totally blow me away. Keep your eyes on this one. Soon, we'll be able to say we knew him when..."

It's great to see that he is staying busy in all facets of the arts and using his God-given talents. It was a pleasure to meet and work with him. Jason is way ahead of the game.
