The famous urban folk singer and songwriter Damien Jurado has made his special place in the indie rock tradition. This ambitious singer from Seattle is highly inspired from Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, or Randy Newman. Though Nick Drake's impact can be seen his works but he modeled his career making idol these songwriters who followed their own way without taking care of what critics says. Jurado's best songs reflects aphoristic, literate tales of reposeful everyday despair and feelings, which often attained him comparisons Raymond Carver, a short story writer. With this diverse taste of music including pop, roots rock, full-fledged electric indie rock, and even found-sound experiments, Jurado is quite sure about himself that his body of work was impossible to completely pin down.
Jurado began his career by playing in many local punk bands in 1989. while playing in these bands, Jurado explored the solo route in mid-'90s. He wrote simple folk-based tunes and released them on his own cassette-only label, Casa Recordings. These releases created a local cult following for Jurado. Additionally he found an powerful fan in fellow Christian and Sunny Day Real Estate singer Jeremy Enigk. Jeremy introduced him to Sub Pop. Jurado released two 7" releases "Motorbike" and "Trampoline" on sub-pop. After this trial, in 1997, he issued his complete debut album, "Waters Ave S." which was followed by a spare, home-recorded EP for Made in Mexico, Gathered in Song, a year later.

His second wonderful effort " Rehearsals for Departure" released in 1999 proved a breakthrough for his career. This album recognized him as a singer/songwriter of enormous refinement and skill. Jurado won global critical acclaim for this album. His rootsy, artistic movement, folk-pop and delicate vocals pulled a great fan-base close to him. Ready for his next move that time, Jurado surprised his fans and critics alike with "Postcards and Audio Letters" released in 2000. This composition was a compilation of conversation fragments found on the audio cassettes that Jurado gathered compulsively and often used for songwriting inspiration.
Another successful album followed the same year was "Ghost of David" issued on Sub Pop . This album covered some of the found-sound collage features of Postcards and seemed to contain a darker and alien sound. Jurado signed with Burnt Toast label and issued the one-off EP Four Songs in 2001. A full band "Gathered in Song" was formed that year featuring guitarist Eric Fisher, bassist Josh Golden, and drummer Andy Myers. The debut performance of the band was seen on Jurado's next album, "I Break Chairs" which was fully electrified and released in 2002. Different people were having different views about his new trial. If few considered it darker than his previous works, many found this transition not only convincing, but amazingly varied and well-crafted.
Jurado left this sub-pop world and got busy in his family and started working as a preschool day teacher. Then he appeared on Indiana-based Secretly Canadian label and gave his debut in 2003 with "Where Shall You Take Me?". This song made a homecoming to his trademark low-key folk-ballad style. Jurado is fully prepared with his latest release "And Now That I'm In Your Shadow" with label Secretly Canadian which is supposed to be released in October 2006.
