Nomad

Profile:
Nomad is a house music duo from England who had several big hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, as well as some similar successes in the UK Singles Chart. Group members are Damon Rochefort (Nomad is Damon spelled backwards, thus the group's name), Steve McCutcheon and Sharon D. Clarke.

Damon Rochefort started his writing career as a columnist on Black music trade bible ‘Blues & Soul’ before graduating to ‘Smash Hits’ and The Sun’s Bizarre column at the age of 18

In 1990 they hit #1 on the dance chart, and #2 in the UK, with the track, "(I Wanna Give You) Devotion." The issue bore the credit 'Nomad featuring MC Mikee Freedom'. Nomad had more hits into the 21st century, with "With You" peaking at #2 on the US dance chart in 2000.

Touring the world as a bona fide pop star (i.e. he couldn’t play any instruments), Rochefort went on to write and produce for other acts including Elton John, Ru Paul, Bad Boys Inc. Michelle Gayle and Kim Wilde before meeting Alomo’s Marks & Gran at a sitcom workshop

After writing various episodes of ‘Birds Of A Feather’, Rochefort concentrated on creating original shows including ‘Boyz R Us’ for the BBC – a show about a boy band and its manipulative manager, something Rochefort knew quite a lot about – ‘The Bad Old Days’ - about a turn-of-the century music hall, - and ‘Last Gasp’ also with the BBC

Concurrently, Rochefort was presenting on TV too: ITV’s network dance show BPM for two years and more recently his own live chat show – which he also wrote - on BBC Wales, the award-winning ‘Damon Rochefort Tonight’ (tapes available)

Rochefort wrote his first theatrical piece ‘Live At Carnegie Hall’ in association with The Royal Ballet, a tribute to Judy Garland which premiered at The Royal Opera House and toured the US and Australia
