Damon Smith is a New York City-based pianist, songwriter, and improviser. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he started his career at the School of Rock, performing and touring with artists such as Jon Anderson of Yes, Napoleon Murphy Brock of Frank Zappa's band, and Andrew W.K. Since then, he's toured as a pianist with artists such as T.3 and Burlap to Cashmere, played his original music at venues such as the Highline Ballroom, the Joe’s Pub, CBGB's, and Webster Hall, and performed as a sideman in festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Zappanale. His debut solo album, "Intimate Machinery," came out shortly after Smith Graduated from New England Conservatory in December 2017. His second album "God of the Grid" dropped in March 2019, which prompted NPR's Here and Now to state: "Excited for what he has next." He currently has a band with his brother Brendan Jacob Smith called The Brightmares, and their debut album "When The World Gets Fixed" dropped in 2022.
