Upon closure of their previous project, League, David Raymond (vocals, guitar) and Matthew Kipp (guitar, vocals) were motivated to write more organically, and lifelike. February, 2005, Damiera began in Buffalo, NY with two guitars, and guitar driven basslines that ultimately moved into a direction that could not fit a singer/songwriter scheme. Meanwhile, Orlando, FL based friends/tourmates, Sleeping Girl Drowning, were approaching closure. Bradley McRae (Drums) endured a 30+ hour bus ride, and joined Matthew and David in Buffalo. Damiera asked friend Mark Henry (bass, vocals), frontman for Buffalo based band Queen City Knights to rehearse, and refine the basslines to aid the arrangement of the existing songs. By late May, the band had played a handful of shows, self-produced/engineered their debut EP, and self-booked a two month tour. Matthew Kipp left the band at the conclusion of Damiera's first tour to pursue different interests. After a very extensive search, Rock Whittington, guitarist of New Orleans, LA based Punch People, flew to meet Damiera in Buffalo. Rock's arrival revealed countless musical, and personality parallels, which not only complimented the band, but broadened it. Now, writing an LP in Buffalo, NY, the band prepares themselves to record early 2006 in New Jersey with producer Jayson DeZuzio.
