Although he appears like a black haired Viking, that conceals a sweet person, a music teacher, I was fortunate to be one of his students, and it naturally became a friend.
Moved over to France when he was 7, he Started learning guitar at 5. He did classical studies for 10 years, studied with differents teachers folk,blues,rock,metal before going to Music Academy International of Nancy -France- where he got graduated in 1996.
About his musical CV :
- Got endorsement with Ibanez guitars in 1997 and opened Ecole de Guitare Ibanez Damien ROY in Saintes -France-.
It becomes natural to have a website to present my work, rather than share different links on different website’s account.
10thapril.org is now functional, and at the same time I’m starting new projects.
Portraits of Strangers
I know this a subject have been done many times, but I must give my vision about it.
