Musician. Entrepreneur. Philanthropist. Humanitarian. Damien Escobar bears many titles and puts no limits on what more he can achieve, making him one of the most prolific figures hailing from Jamaica, Queens. The Emmy-winning, NAACP Image Award nominee, possesses a nearly two-decade-spanning resume that includes billboard chart-topping albums, sold-out global tours, collaborations with music legends, and more — an inspirational success story that started with Escobar playing his violin on NYC subways. Proving his hustle, drive, passion and unquestionable talent, are the pillars that hold up his ever-expanding brand.

Damien’s energetic live performances feature a wide range of “cross-over” musical styles consisting of a mix of classical, jazz, pop, R&B, and hip hop. His eclectic use of genres creates a sound that embraces the traditions of jazz and classical music as much as it highlights his singular innovation as an artist, and his desire to explore beyond the boundaries of the sonically mainstream. There is something in Damien’s music for everyone, and it is truly best enjoyed live.

Damien Escobar, also known as Dame Esco, is an American violinist. He was previously in the duo Nuttin' But Stringz with his brother Tourie, but has been a solo artist since 2012. His "crossover violin" musical style consists of a mix of classical, jazz, pop, R&B, and hip hop. Escobar was born in 1986 in the Jamaica, Queens neighborhood in New York City. He lived with his single mother and older brother Tourie.
