New Artist: Damion Suomi

It's always refreshing to find an artist who rises above the crowded singer/songwriter scene. New arrival Damion Suomi (Sue-Me) is one such diamond in the rough and an exciting recent discovery for me. Suomi writes down-to-earth tunes inspired by Irish culture; as he describes it, "these songs were birthed from pubs, drinks, and relationships." Truly, his melancholy, yet hopeful, music is the perfect soundtrack for last calls on cold, lonely nights or for quiet, reflective moments. His sound is simple and timeless, a path well traveled but a welcome stroll just the same.

His debut album, Self Titled, is set to be released on March 24, 2009, but that doesn't mean you you shouldn't immediately familiarize yourself with his music. Check out his MySpace page for a few songs appearing on the upcoming record or visit his page at P is for Panda for more info.
