Demian Band - Devil By My Side - 2008 - Demain Band Music

Demian Dominguez is the most promising Blues guitarist/singer to ever emerge from the Latin American, and Spanish cultures. Demian s musicianship sounds so authentically Blues that you would think Demian to be a native of the Southern United States, rather than his native Argentina and current home in Barcelona, Spain. Currently, Demian is releasing in the United States and in Europe, his second CD entitled Devil By My Side featuring world renowned Bernard Allison along with Demianband. Devil By My Side will be promoted on radio and press internationally with a major impetus in the United States. A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Demian Dominguez has been devoted to his music and his musical career since the age of 12. In his early teens, he had the life forming experience of being around and involved in the music of Jimmie Vaughan, Los Lobos and Roy Rogers in Huracan Stadium in Buenos Aires at an homage to Stevie Ray Vaughan when he worked at the stadium. Demian cultivated his artistry while covering the Buenos Aires scene with his trio, and he shared the stage with well-known Argentine musicians, such as, Alejandro Lerner, Ricardo Mollo (Divididos), Pappo, Jorge Pinchevsky, Emphis la blusera, Willi Quiroga (Vox Dei), Alejandro Medina (Manal), Hector Starc, Walter Sidotti drums of de "Patricio Rey y los Redonditos de Ricotta"), and others. In 1996 the Teatro General San Martin de Buenos Aires awarded Demian a certificate for the Promotion of and Continuation of the Blues. In 1997, MTV aired a 60 minute special entitled MTV Outside, in which Demian was involved. He was then invited to the Argentine Exposicion Nacional Rock 30 Years where he was part of a band promoting on television the "Toyota Hilux". He was invited to participate in the festivities of the 6th anniversary of the famed radio program of "Rock & Pop" "Buenos Aires Blues", playing along with well-known Argentine musicians such as, Pappo, Ricardo Mollo (Divididos), Juanse (Ratones Paranoicos), Maximo Pera Renauld, Rafael Nasta, Miguel Botafogo y Black Amaya. Demian recorded his first CD entitled Furia in 1998 in Buenos Aires. Furia was aired on "Radio Nacional" of Argentina in a live broadcast throughout the entire country. In 2000 he recorded his second CD, "Heavy Blues" which was promoted throughout Argentina. In 2002, Demian moved to Barcelona, Spain where he re-formed Demianband. The band plays the circuit of clubs and bars and was invited to play in the "Festa de la Merce", "S.O.S Racisme" and blues festivals such as Reus, "Black Music" (Girona), Barcelona, Manresa, Cerdanyola and others while being a member of the Blues Society of Barcelona. One of the most special times in Demian s career was when Bernard Allison one of the most brilliant guitar players in the world blues music scene -- invited him to Karlsruhe, Germany, to perform with him. During the performance Bernard Allison pointed out to the audience how beautifully Demian had interpreted the music. Now the tables have turned, and Bernard Allison appears on Demian s new CD, Devil Bu My Side which also features Demian Dominguez along with Tito Bonacera on bass, Roger Serrahima on drums and Fernando Tejero on Hammond B3 and piano.

Demian Dominguez from Buenos Aires, Argentina began to play professionally when he was 13. By the time he was 15 he had opened for artists like Jimmie Vaughan, Roy Rogers & Los Lobos. Demian's biggest influences are among 60′ and 70′ musicians of whom he said "Those guys were inventing new stuff and they played with such energy and passion by contributing a piece of themselves to every song and every musical note that they played and this is something that I never forget". Demian, a great fan of the late SRV also said "I give thanks to Stevie Ray Vaughn for being a major influence in my musical career. For me, what was so profound about Stevie Ray Vaughn is that you can hear that he took many influences of the old timers and he created his own style with those influences that evolved beyond and expressed his own individuality. It’s like when you are young and your family offers you advice. You must listen to them and then you take their suggestions and your own way of doing things grows out of that so you build your own thoughts and opinions. To me it is the most important thing to have my own musical “voice” and for that to keep on developing". Speaking about "Devil By My Side", Demian stated that "Truly, Devil By My Side is the CD that I’ve enjoyed working on more than any of the others. I was able to put into use much of what I had learned in the past. I also took the opportunity to focus on the vocals on the album. For me, singing is just as important as playing the guitar, although I have to work much harder on the vocals. I’m really satisfied with the final product. Being able to collaborate with Bernard Allison was an incredible experience. We met each other years ago in Germany when he invited me to perform with him. in Germany and when I had the idea to record my new album instantly I thought about him to be involved. What an amazing person he is. When I asked him to record a song with me he was delighted to do so. We worked together in the studio with my good friend Raul Arias and we used a 60s microphone, my old Fender amps, Marshalls, electric and acoustic Dobro guitars and we did it all in one or two takes. It was a great experience. I recorded my CD with my good friends Tito Bonacera on Bass, Roger Serrahima on Drums and Fernando Tejero on Hammond and everyone did a great job. Thanks to this CD, I have had the opportunity to travel to and play in many countries including the United States and Canada". "Devil By My Side" is a great album and HR by A.O.O.F.C.
