"Fans of classical crossover music will note that Damian Marchand sounds reminiscent of Josh Groban…if you like Groban, Bocelli, et al, do yourself a favor and give a listen to one of our area's most talented voices while that opportunity is still with us. It seems certain that this South Dakota native could be off to bigger and better things soon."

Having received no formal musical education, Damian Marchand considers his voice to be a gift and has been singing professionally for the last several years. He has performed locally with the Sioux Falls Municipal Band, South Dakota Chamber Orchestra, Artfalls, First Night Sioux Falls, and can be heard performing across the region at various concerts, community events and charity benefits. He is most well-known for producing and presenting his own Christmas concert, “A Captivating Christmas”. The annual event has received outstanding commendations and features musicians from the SD Symphony, dancers and local guest performers.
In December 2005, Damian released his debut CD of classically-styled Christmas music.
When not performing, Damian works as a Director I.T. at Nexlink Communications, Llc. in Andover, MN. He and his wife Donna have 3 children.
In 2008 Damian was forced to put his music career on hold due to health reasons, but he is hoping to return someday.
