The Blues may have originated in the U.S., but clearly it now belongs to the world! A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Demian has been devoted to his music and his musical career since the age of 12. At the young age of 15 he achieved a unique opportunity, and received excellent reviews, when he was chosen as the opening artist for Jimmie Vaughan, Los Lobos and Roy Rogers at Huracan Stadium in Buenos Aires, in a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Demian cultivated his artistry in the Buenos Aires music scene, sharing the stage with well-known Argentine musicians such as Alejandro Lerner, Ricardo Mollo (Divididos), Pappo, Jorge Pinchevsky, Pappo, Willy Quiroga (Vox Dei), Alejandro Medina (Manal), Hector Starc, Walter Sidoti (Patricio Rey y Los Redonditos De Ricota), and others, culminating in his being awarded the ?Contribution to Blues? award from the General San Martin Theatre of Buenos Aires. In 1997, MTV aired a 60 minute special about Demian, entitled ?MTV Outside? (?MTV Afuera?).
Subsequently, he wrote the music for a Toyota TV spot, played nightclubs and concerts throughout Argentina, performed live guest spots on radio, and recorded two successful solo albums with Demian Band until he moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2002. In Barcelona Demian reformed Demian Band and frequently appeared with world renowned Blues guitarist/singer Bernard Allison and international Rock legend Elliot Murphy while performing in prominent European clubs and Blues festivals. In 2007 he recorded a DVD, produced by Bad Music and the Barcelona Blues Society, in the legendary Sala Apolo de Barcelona, and followed this with a tour in Germany in 2008. Demian?s previous successful CD, "Devil by My Side", featured Fernando Tejero on keyboards, and Bernard Allison on slide guitar and vocals on "If You Say You Love Me." The CD received wide critical and popular acclaim in both the U.S. and Europe, reaching #1 on the Blues radio charts in the U.S.
In addition to the extraordinary talents of Demian, on his latest and 5th CD release, "Tattoo'd Fish", Demian Band consists of the masterly bass and keys of Tito Bonacera and the driving percussion of drummer Roger Serrahima. "Tattoo'd Fish" cooks with Demian Band's usual high-energy and Demian's signature blistering intensity, and combines original tunes with new arrangements of classics from the traditional Blues repertoire. While "Devil by My Side" or "Tattoo'd Fish" are great for a party, seeing this sensational act live is an exhilarating experience. Audiences are continually impressed by their uncompromising interpretation and kick-ass live shows, so true to their Texas and Delta Blues roots. Watch for Demian Band?s 2011/2012 tour in the U.S.
