Hailing from Louisiana but relocating to Atlanta, Damar Jackson is here to bring back that old school, soulful R&B we all know and love. With his most recent project titled Unfaithful Deluxe, Damar reels in features from Moneybagg Yo, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and more. Rocking a Make R&B Great Again hat, Damar stops by Power 106 for an exclusive interview w/ DJ Felli Fel.
First, he begins by discussing his upbringing in the church:
“At the end of the day, it put me in a position to be talented. Because I got a God-given gift. I played it by ear as a kid, just got on the piano and started going. Just out of nowhere, just playing everything I heard from that point. Played me a song, I just started playing it. 12 years old, I started on the drums first. It’s just crazy. Started on the drums, then on the piano, then I was in the saxophone, got in the band. Then they were like ‘we got too many saxophone players,’ so we played the tuba.”
Damar adds, “Whatever I touch, it’s gonna go. That applies to my life, I can do anything.”
When asked about who he would bring on his dream tear, he lists himself, Ty Dolla $ign, Jacquees, Chris Brown, and 6lack.
In addition, he reveals how he started as an intern and lied about being an A&R, working with K Camp, being influenced by Static Major, and more. Watch above!
