Biography Damià Timoner

damià guitarra petitI was born in Manacor, Malloca, which is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, and istead of showing preference for fishing-rods, lines and nets, I chose the strings of the Spanish guitar. I studied classical guitar and when I was about 20 I thought there were enough good classical guitar players, so, as it was not my case, I preferred to denote myself to composing my own pieces of music.

In 1992 I released my first album, and since then I have been trying to go on with my career with steadiness and coherence. This loyalty to my work and to what I do has given me the strength to be able to release a new album every 2 or 3 years with new and more mature compositions.

I have a total of 10 albums, for the moment, which I hope will make you feel the deep respect I have for the art and for all those who enjoy it.

During all these years I have had the honour of sharing the stage with musicians like Raimundo Amador, Ariel Rot, Kepa Junquera, Javier Vargas or Marc Grau. Moreover, I have been able to share musical experiences with Donovan, Lluis Llach, Raimón, DJ Sammy and with bands such as La Búsqueda, Ocults, Cap on Nam, La Fosca or Cap Pela.

I’m slowly making my way, like a tightrope walker with no net, getting on the stage, to play solo with the ony company of my guitar and to be left alone with one and only one plot: my music.

Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Deep Purple, Byrds, Genesis, The Police, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, AC/DC are the artists I usually listen to.

Michael Hedges, Alex Degrassi and Don Ross are some of the influences under which I compose.

Well, I really need a coffee… worst admittable vice. I hope you will enjoy the trip I suggest you to take along my musical universe.
