Daemon Chili is a Boston-based American Roots Rock band. Formed in the fall of 2013 by Michael Dion (lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitar/harmonica), the band quickly gained regional traction by way of their energetic and powerful live performances. Dion, formerly of the acclaimed New England string band Hot Day at the Zoo, reworked much of the material from his former outfit and has created something entirely new and exciting (think Bob Dylan going electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival).
Daemon Chili’s personnel is composed of Jason Moretti (lead guitar), Jay Samiagio (bass) formerly of Cotton Mouth, and Jay Breen (drums) formerly of The Freelance Bishops. Heavily influenced by the unique and eclectic sounds of such luminary acts as The Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, and The Band, Daemon Chili fuses elements of rock, blues, folk, Americana, bluegrass, and reggae, into their sound.
Willy has his song about booze: Whiskey River. Dylan has his song about weed: Rainy Day Women. And Cash has his song about drugs: Cocaine Blues. So I thought I’d write a song with all three of these lovely vices. The Wicked Blues is a party song, plain and simple. Here's to festival season fast approaching!
