Jesse Damon and his rock band from Southern California, have been rocking the music scene for the last three years.

Jesse Damon has been on the forefront of the melodic rock scene for two decades. In that time he has seen success with his other recording group Silent Rage, who have released three critically acclaimed albums, including the Gene Simmons produced "Don't Touch Me There" (Simmons/RCA), a favorite on MTV's Head Bangers Ball.
Jesse's songwriting credits are impressive. He has co-written and developed songs that appear on the various KISS albums, most notably "Revenge," and "Psycho Circus," and his songs have also appeared on television and in major motion pictures.
His debut solo album "The Hand That Rocks" was produced by Paul Sabu, and packed full of high energy rock, and seasoned with intense melodic ballads. The album features a co-written rock anthem by Gene Simmons and Jesse Damon called "Everybody Needs Somebody," and Jesse has earned his mark as a part of the KISS family, under the helm of Gene Simmons, and also a place as a Simmons/RCA Records alumnus.
Now, Jesse Damon is showing the world his commitment to his music, and fans everywhere!
He has unleashed his second solo CD entitled "Nothin' Else Matters," with a new mixture of style this time around. Jesse growth as a writer also fits today's mold in music, establishing a signature sound that enables his listeners to hear a rock blend of "Classic meet's Modern!"
