He played with Frank Gambale and Alain Caron (Uzeb), and currently with Jean Luc Ponty. He's a Meinl endorser.

Very recently, he got endorsed by Mapex.

Bah! Why isn't he on the DW pro-drummer list yet? I even ordered his drum-battle dvd from France. Chops-monster with feel! Just check out his Meinl youtube-clips.
He also played with the french jazz-guitarist Birelli Lagrene on the album Electric Side.

At a certain moment, he also played with Sixun, replacing Paco SÚry. He has indeed great chops and fills and he made quite an impression at 2010 Meinl Drum Festival.

I saw him with Jean-Luc Ponty last year. Sat about 10' from his drums. He's a monster!

Great Job for Damien...it's awesome to see him on drummerworld. My former teacher will be very happy because he taught to Damien in his early days!
