The Subway Performer With a #1 Hit Song
Jul 07, 2015
Damon C. Scott can regularly be seen performing on the streets and in the subways of New York City, especially at the 86th Street station. What most people who witness his performances don't know is that he is also the vocalist in the hit song "Look Right Through" by Storm Queen. In this short film by Emily Sheskin, Scott discusses his frustrations with being featured in a number one house music track, but being largely anonymous. "No one knew who I was," he says. "I didn't make the kind of kind of money that you guys are probably thinking I made."
