Two time Emmy-award winning contemporary soul violinist, DAMIEN ESCOBAR is proud to announce the release of his fifth solo studio album, “GEMINI“, to be launched on Thursday, June 13, 2024, on his birthday as a gift to his legion of devoted fans. The aptly titled album is not only in reference to Damien’s astrological sign, but also humorously pays homage to his “Gemini ways” that he has exhibited throughout his twenty year musical career. It encapsulates the ups and down, the pivots and the rollercoaster scenarios brought on by the surprises of life, this 8-track album will take music lovers on an unforgettable journey.

This album is a fully expressed celebration on what it means to be a Gemini in every facet of the word. There are so many emotions that went into completing this album and I am proud of this body of work,” shares Damien Escobar. The first single to be released from the “GEMINI” album, was the Billboard Magazine chart-topping single, “Taboo.” The single touched the souls of Jazz afficionados around the world and went on to become a number one Billboard single on the Jazz Charts. Earlier this year, Damien released the follow-up smash, “Deja Vu,” featuring renowned Keyboardist, Jeff Lorber. “As we await the arrival of “GEMINI,” Damien is eager to showcase the focus track of the album, his instrumental two-step, “Symphony of Romance.” The song was produced by Hamilton Harden and written by Darren “J-Dibbs” Jenkins.

To celebrate the launch of the Gemini album, a series of consumer performances will take place throughout the United States, kicking off in New York City on Friday, June 14, 2024. Additional show locations can be found by visiting ww.dameesco.com.

Damien Escobar is a worldwide phenom with a host of accolades to his credit including winning two Emmy’s, being nominated for a NAACP Image Award, performing for four presidents and selling millions of records throughout his historic time as a contemporary soul violinist. With a career spanning two decades, Escobar has single handedly redefined the classical music genre and helped usher in a new breed of violinist along the way. He has also overcome a host of personal trials and tribulations including depression and homelessness to ultimately pivoting during the COVID pandemic to nurturing a career in the advertising industry where he became the Chief Global Music Officer for advertising giant, HAVAS, the first and only African American to hold such a position.

At one time having completely lost his desire to produce music, then falling back in love with the creation process and developing content, Damien looks at the Gemini album as proof that a person can excel at a multitude of things at once as long as they stand strong in their perseverance and mission for success.
