Damien wins Seattle Weekly Singer/Songwriter Award!

When Jurado’s Ghost of David (Sub Pop) uncurled its wrinkled, earth-stained fingers and wrapped itself around listeners everywhere in 2000, loosely held ideas about a genre called “urban folk” quickly solidified. Jurado’s conversational acoustic guitar tones, strange melodies, and straightforward, literary voice make the city seem as lonely and desolate as the country. Likely owing to his punk background, the singer/songwriter also makes honesty and spirituality seem as tough as nails. Your choice for Best Singer/Songwriter released On My Way to Absence this year; layered among the handcrafted melancholy narratives are electronic flourishes and artfully arranged samples.
