The Divine Requiem (formerly Damascus Mile) just finished their Debut Full-length release. This Four-piece collective is based out of Minneapolis Minnesota. Jaired Johnson the bands singer/songwriter's vocals are the first thing to turn your head, powerful and emotional, you will understand what he's feeling. Backed by Chris Kreber on lead guitars, Juan Medina on Bass and Tina Kordiak on drums providing a melodic rollercoaster of emotions structured to keep you listening from beginning to the end.
REVIEWS: 'The first time I heard local outfit Damascus Mile’s lead singer Jaired Johnson I had to do a double take. Johnson’s voice demands attention, its a towering presence whose greatness is not up for debate. Tina Kordiak is the female drummer in this otherwise all-guy band and she provides a crucial rhythmic heartbeat to the positive message oriented act. Her best asset is the way she complements Johnson’s vocals with drumbeats that don’t drown out those can’t-turn-away vocals.' ~ Pulse of the Twin Cities (4/14/04)
'...like many local groups. They are just paying their dues, hoping for something bigger down the road. They are led by their much too-talented lead singer Jaired Johnson. He is accompanied by Chris Kreber on lead guitars, Tina Kordiak on drums...' ~ Pulse of the Twin Cities (12/11/02)
