In 'Holding His Breath', the 2003 EP released through Acuarela Spain, Damien exposes five delicately pure songs. 'I Am the Greatest of All Liars' reveals his enigmatic & elusive side, a catalogue of what we feel but can't see. 'Oh Death Art with Me' evokes the memory of Nick Drake, tarnished by the Yankee touch of Damien's voice & guitar; warning US that the Devil keeps an eye on US form the moment we set foot on Earth. 'Big Let Down' is solitude & abandonment, turned into music by the rhythmical echoes of what could be a reminder of Neil Young, whilst 'Now You're Swimming' returns to the initial darkness, accompanied by a heart-piercing schizophrenic at times chorus. 'Butcher's Boy' (written by Peggy Seeger) closes the sensational 'Holding His Breath' with an accurate reminiscence of aromas from the Delta. Not meaning to sound trivial, it seems that Jurado is one of those people who think that the best blues in the world or the lot of them, can be found in the Bible. Gatefold paper sleeve.
