Damon Guyett is a Canadian lo-fi/rock/noise-pop artist based in Waterdown, Ontario. Damon Guyett was born in Hamilton, Ontario on May 21st, 1991. After the death of his grandfather in late-2005, him and his mother decided to leave their home in Hamilton and take over the house of his late-grandfather.
Naked House was born from a desire to find a way to express myself about why I think I am the way I am. I still haven't answered my own questions concerning that yet, but that's what the beauty about this project is to me. It's the chase. Paranoid and neurotic like anything from Portishead to Pink Floyd, groggy and disoriented like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Animal Collective, emotional and melancholic as Perfume Genius or even Big Star's best ballads, and often as scorchingly lo-fi as if listening to a tape cassette that was left out on a hot patio. Damon's sprawling styles reflects an outgoing side to this Canadian songwriter, while his more introverted side resembles that of Nick Drake, Stephin Merrit or even Neil Young.

"Every week something will just drop into our mailbox here at GIITTV towers and unexpectedly that quite delightfully catch us off guard. One such trinkett arrived a few days ago. Born in the industrial wasteland that is Hamilton, Ontario was Damon Guyett a talented bedroom producer who at the age of just 20 is captivating our ear drums this afternoon. He provides the lo fi soundtrack to a short film ‘Bugged’ a wonderful psychy sixminute trawl through half remembered fragments of melody, reverb drenched synths, hazy dream rushes and splendid glitches." - God is in the TV
"Out of his mom's basement in sleepy Waterdown, ON comes 20 year-old musician Damon Guyett. He's spending his time wisely, making spacey experimental lo-fi music." - T.O. Snob's Music
