Damian Costin has been in the music industry for over 20 years. Starting out as the drummer of Australian rock band Motor Ace in the late 90’s performing shows with bands including the Foo Fighters, Oasis and Blink 182, Damo switched to the other side of the fence and hit the ground running as one of the top bookers in the Australian industry and a few years back founded his own artist booking agency and corporate business called 123 Agency.
123 Agency boasts an super impressive artist roster that is testament to the hard work of Damo and his 123 Agency team. There’s a whole BUNCH of my favourite Australian artists and bands including Kingswood, Tash Sultana, Ash Grunwald, Harts, Pierce Brothers, Clairy Browne, The Delta Riggs and shitloads more.
He’s also back behind the kit in Aussie band Nighthawk. We have SUCH much to talk about and get through including the evolution of 123 Agency, some of your artists including Kingswood and Tash Sultana… so let’s get into it.

With the sexiest funk of bass jamms & soaring lead guitar riffs, Harts is born of what could be the music love-child of Prince and rock & roll legend Jimi Hendrix.
Indian-born and Melbourne raised Darren Hart AKA Harts grew up on the dirty streets of St Kilda, Australia, the son of two wonderfully, gifted Indian athletes.
Today’s podcast is an inspiring tale of a guy who was contacted personally by Prince off the back of his YouTube success, being flown to Minneapolis in the USA to jam with Prince for a week, travelling through India, record deals, his brand new single ‘Peculiar’, a brand new album coming out in June and the empowerment of being your own career and brand.
This is a bloody ripper! & easily one of my best podcasts yet! Let’s get amongst it!
