Damiain is a professional musician with a first class honours degree in music from Chichester University. He has a passion for music since he sat on his father's knee at the piano as a small child. He now is a multi instrumentalist and vocalist performing mainly in his own band, The Damiain Lodrick Band. The 'DLB' is now growing and proving to be one of the south's leading function band, so much so that he has started further bands to cope with the amount of business generated by the highly successful 'DLB'.
Damiain has many years experience of performing in various bands covering many styles from Soul and Jazz to rock and Pop. He spent some time performing in hotels in Europe and the Middle East honing his solo show which you can now see at select venues in the UK.
As well as performing, Damiain has been an instrumental tutor of piano, guitar, bass guitar and contemporary vocals for over 20 years. He has taught many students, both privately and in schools with ages ranging from 5 to the ageless, retired generation! The move to leading a contemporary choir was just the next challenge he needed. His love for music is most definitely a driving force for the weekly choir sessions.
Assistant Musical Director and accompanist
Cantando choir was started in May 2016 by our choir master Damiain Lodrick in conjuction with Cantando, Southsea which is run by Rebecca .
Sue and Bob Logan were instrumental in getting the choir up and running along with Damiain, in the early stages. Bob works closely with Damiain on all things Musical and has done many of the arrangements on our earlier songs. As the choir expanded to it's current size and became more independent the team also needed to grow. Cathy and Panda joined Sue in the Summer term of 2017 and between them they cover all aspects of the administration required.
