Damon Albarn (Blur & Gorillaz) Part 1


Frontman of two of the most successful alternative music projects of all time, Damon Albarn has been a musical powerhouse for over thirty years at this point. With his work as a young man in Blur catapulting Britpop to the top of the musical world, to forming the most successful "virtual band" of all time with the genre-defying Gorillaz. Refusing to be defined by one sound or idea, Damon has constantly taken his music incredibly seriously, constantly moving from one sound to another, seemingly capable of making hits with anyone, (De La Soul, Elastica and Danger Mouse to name a few!). In this first episode on Damon we explore his early days as a school aged musician all the way to the beginnings of Gorillaz in the early 2000's. Follow Us:https://www.instagram.com/influenced.podcast/
