The LizyT show with Singer Damond Young

Damond Young is a recording artist, lyricist, producer, and entrepreneur based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Known for his uniqe brand of youthful, explosive energy lyrical versatility, creative wit, and spirituality, Damond has quickly gone from surprise prodigy to industry prospect, to now becoming one of the most exciting independent acts to emerge in New Orleans and add to the historic legacy of innovators that have made New Orleans' musical tradition a thing of legend in hip hop and beyond.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Damond grew up all across the city, from the 7th Ward, St. Bernard, and New Orleans East to the esteemed areas of Fontainebleau, Uptown, and Tulane University, bringing a wide range of experiences into his music.

Damond's recording career officially began at age 13, when he was inspired by family members beatboxing and beating on tables in the tradition admired by hip hoppers worldwide. As he began writing and articulating his thoughts in a complex world he interpreted through music, everything from New Orleans' second line jazz tradition to the world famous Cash Money and No Limit Records inspired him.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Damond emerged as a rising MC in New Orleans, pressing his first release with long-time compatriots Skitz and Flow. HOW 2 GRIND VOL. 2 quickly took the city by storm in 2008, and established DY as a presence in the New Orleans landscape among rising stars.
