Coming from a musical family, LaDamion Massey has been involved in music since he was a child. By the age of thirteen, LaDamion took first place in a piano competition and played the cello while touring around Colorado and select states singing in a gospel youth choir. From these experiences as a youth, LaDamion developed an eclectic taste in music. At the University of Northern Colorado, LaDamion was an opera chorus member of Marriage of Figaro, Madame Butterfly and La Traviata. He also had the privilege to play the role of Pish-Tush in the comic opera, The Mikado and the Narrator in Suzanna. While at UNC he nurtured his passion for jazz where he performed in the top ensembles Vocal Jazz 1 and Et Cetera where he had the opportunity to open for New York Voices. After leaving UNC, LaDamion continued to perform as one of the original members of the a cappella vocal jazz sextet, Groovesociety. As a member of Groovesociety, the ensemble won the 2003 Rocky Mountain region Harmony Sweepstakes. In 2006, the group received “Best Vocal Group of the Year”, “Best A Cappella Album”, “Best A Cappella Song” by the JPF International Music Awards. In 2007, Groovesociety was honored to perform at the annual IAJE Conference in New York City. Groovesociety performed at many high school jazz festivals around the country where they adjudicated high school vocal jazz groups. This experience led LaDamion to return to school. In 2011, LaDamion graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a degree in Music Education. Currently, LaDamion is the director of the vocal jazz ensemble at MSU Denver. He can also be seen performing around Denver with such bands as The Atomic Brass Project, The Motet and the R&B a cappella sextet Confidential who won the 2010 Rocky Mountain Region Harmony Sweepstakes.
