2020 International Blues Challenge Semi-Finalist "Damian Knapp is well versed in the Blues and plays a mean slide guitar"- Elmore Magazine Excerpts from Decay In Our Cities Review in Blues Blast Magazine “Singer-songwriter-guitarist Damian Knapp from Warren, OH breathes life into the blues with his energy and creativity...Damian's over layered guitars including his awesome slide guitar skills create a full and exuberant sound... Damian wrote and/or co-wrote the twelve original songs found here... The title song "Decay In Our Cities" employs some of "Rollin' and Tumblin'" for its music. This song along with much here is blues pertaining to the human condition... Political discord is the subject of "Nobody Wants To Budge." Acoustic guitars power the upbeat sermon on peace and equality "The Answer". "Ron's Garage" is the perfect hanging out song. The listener is regaled with the pleasure of chillin' with your buds against a hearty rockin' attack... Slide guitar and Jake Friel's blazing harmonica battle it out...The wickedly nervous slide guitar slashes through the ether...This guy has acoustic guitar playing covered along with his electric guitar skills... Current concerns and travails are set to solid traditional blues influences. This brother is truly shot full of blues. Nothing dull or borrowed here, just a real blues feel.” - Greg "Bluesdog" Szalony — Blues Blast Magazine
