Damon Jeremiah Washington also known as Diverse Character (DC) is a young up and coming hip hop artist, performer, entertainer, musician and song writer. Damon was born on December 26, 1992 in Trenton, New Jersey. Damon’s hometown did not offer much support for the performing arts. Some notable names to come out of Trenton are actor Neil Hopkins, hip-hop group Poor Righteous Teachers (PRT), and NBA Hall of Famer and actor Dennis Rodman. At the age of ten, his mother, tired of the violence that plagued the capital city, moved herself and Damon to the suburbs of Yardley, Pennsylvania where he would reside until graduating from Pennsburg High School. During his eighth grade year, some of Damon’s friends introduced him to hip-hop music. Damon quickly fell in love. Shortly after, he would find himself rapping for hours to perfect his craft. He would mimic Kanye West and Drake as those were two artists that he looked up to early on. As Damon matured as an artist, the opportunities to perform live and record in the studio were presented; his taste in music began to evolve. He would now become a student of the art form and began to dig deep into the vault of music’s rich past. In doing so, Damon discovered legendary rock guitarist, singer and song writer Jimi Hendrix, and one of the most outspoken influential rock groups, The Doors. Damon was influenced by their work. This prompted Damon to experiment with pop, techno, R&B and rock; hence him calling himself Diverse Character. Damon cites Michael Jackson, Nas, Creed, Biggie Smalls Kid Cudi, Lupe Fiasco Tupac and the aforementioned Drake and Kanye West as acts that he looks up to; these are many diverse talents, hence the name Diverse Character. Diverse Character’s Stay Tuned!
