Frans de Waard recently reviewed Yoke releases 01-03 (my solo debut “Softened Skull,” as well as both collaborations with Darin Gray) at Vital Weekly, an e-mail magazine (formerly print zine) that’s been active as long as I’ve been drawing breath.

Tireless out music supporter and aficionado Tom Burris has penned a very flattering review of my solo recording debut, “Softened Skull,” over at Free Jazz Blog:
“This disc seems to be a condensed demo to show the range of Damon’s talents, rather than a full-blown “statement” & that’s just fine with me. The pieces are short, yeah – but I wouldn’t say they’re under-developed. There’s a shit-or-get-off-the-pot aesthetic that displays a mass of ideas quickly. And now that this recording exists, I expect we’ll be going on many more trips with Mr. Damon that will build upon this sturdy framework. A highly respectable debut from a phenomenal talent.”

Happy new year! I’m pleased to announce the launch of my own private imprint, YOKE. Yoke will primarily serve as a vehicle for my own solo and collaborative releases and will also occasionally feature other artists of a simpático nature. The first Yoke release will be a CDr reissue of my debut, “Softened Skull,” originally released on cassette Summer 2014 by Auris Apothecary & Magnetic South. They’re available for purchase now at the new Yoke page: http://tylerdamon.com/yoke. Here’s a magnificently shot promo video by DAS to get you in the mood:
I burned the screens today for an upcoming CDr edition of my debut solo recording, “Softened Skull.” It’s the first release on YOKE, my new label for self-releases, etc. More info on that soon…for now here are some pictures of the screening process:
