Biography

The British singer and songwriter Damon Gough performing under the pseudonym Badly Drawn Boy was born in 1969 in Bolton. His musical career started in the second half of nineties, when Damon made his first vinyl record EP1, which consisted only of five compositions. Nevertheless, these records are extremely valuable now, which is not a surprise: Badly Drawn Boy established a reputation of incredibly talented and distinctive artist. There is no doubt that listeners are interested in Damon’s new songs and in compositions of his early creativity as well.

Badly Drawn Boy’s debut album titled The Hour Of Bewilderbeast saw the light in 2000. That record immediately attracted the music lovers’ attention, who were really pleased by its original sound. The Hour Of Bewilderbeast got the Platinum status and brought to the artist a prestigious Mercury Prize, which is a great proof of the long play’s highest quality. Two years later Badly Drawn Boy’s discography was enlarged by two works in a row: a soundtrack to the movie About A Boy (2002) and the studio album Have You Fed The Fish? (2002), which got fair reviews from the critics. Keeping the pace, the musician released his fourth long play One Plus One Is One in 2004. As he stated, that work was devoted to the theme of different kinds of relationships.

The traditionally strong album Born In The U.K. was issued in 2006. Its title is a direct allusion to Bruce Springsteen’s record Born in the U.S.A. of 1984. The allusion is quite logical, because Gough is a huge fan of Springsteen’s art and he often gets inspiration in Bruce’s works. Three years later Badly Drawn Boy again pleased the listeners by the album Is There Nothing We Could Do? (2009). It had been recorded after watching a movie The Fattest Man In Britain, which had a great influence on Damon.

Badly Drawn Boy’s seventh studio attempt It's What I'm Thinking, Pt. 1: Photographing Snowflakes was released in 2010. The musician managed to create an amazing atmosphere that became his signature feature. Badly Drawn Boy is not afraid of experimenting with the sound, structure and concept of his songs, and It's What I'm Thinking, Pt. 1: Photographing Snowflakes has become a great proof of the fact that the artist is absolutely free in his creativity.
