As The Sparrow
As the Sparrow is a folk influenced rock-swing band based around the songwriting of Mark Damon. In 2009, while majoring in Theater at Salem State University and working as a professional actor in downtown Salem, Ma, Damon decided that his heart belonged to music. After writing an album's worth of songs he teamed up with his longtime friend Kenneth Mckeen, who in the fall of 2009, flew in from Michigan after performing in the Johnny Cash musical "The Ring of Fire" on upright bass. Soon after, Leo Fonseca and Yves Francois joined the group on trumpet and percussion.

From time to time I love this life.
The Millenial Muse
I've been playing guitar for about 10 years in the blues and rock genres. I have a Bachelor of Music in Songwriting from Berklee College of Music. I am currently pursuing a Master of Science in Arts Administration at Boston University. I play in a bluesy rock band called Hevy Sol where I am the main songwriter, singer, lead guitarist, manager, and booking agent. I have also been known to do the occasional acoustic singer/songwriter performance.
