Damien Horne is the kind of guy you really enjoy getting to know. One reason is because he has a special way of making everyone around him feel special. He’s intentional about doing that because he sincerely believes that they are.
Damien has a real knack for tapping into people’s gifts and talents and inspiring them to reach their fullest potential. He’s a spark from the greatest Light Source. In fact, Matthew 5:14-16 are some of his favorite bible Scriptures. It talks about letting one’s light shine.
In fact, if you were to ask Damien what his purpose in life is, he’d probably tell you that it’s to make others believe that they can fulfill their own purpose in this world. Whether it’s through his songs, his public speaking platform or simply via a one-on-one conversation, you’ll walk away from Damien truly believing that anything is possible!
Damien’s credentials are loaded. Although he was homeless in two different cities (LA and Nashville), his positive mindset, and more importantly, his love for God and serving others have helped him to overcome countless challenges.
As a result, Damien has shared the stage with the likes of everyone from Faith Hill and Big & Rich to Robert Randolph and John Legend. He’s landed publishing deals with Big Love and Warner Chapel. He’s also been featured in People, Huffington Post and Black Enterprise—just to name a few.
Damien was also a part of a country music trio The Farm that was signed to Warner Brothers. During their stint, they had two charting singles. “Home Sweet Home” (Billboard Top 20) and “Be Grateful” (Billboard Top 40). The trio has since transitioned into being a duo. He and Krista Marie are currently touring under the name New North.
When Damien’s not on the road as an artist, he’s working alongside The Salvation Army and Boys & Girls Club to share his story of being one of 12 children, the first to graduate from high school and avoiding being a victim of the streets. His other passion projects include Samaritan’s Feet, Beat of Life and Send Musicians to Prison.
Traveling the world to spread love and light to others is a daily practice for Damien. Currently, it’s by sharing his one-man show #RISEANDSHINE.
There’s not nearly enough time to get into all that moves Damien to live his best life. Just know that if you get a chance to meet him, it will most certainly be moments that he will treasure.
From one beacon of light to another, it will be time well spent.
