Damage are a British R&Bboy band who achieved success in the 1990s with eleven hit singles, including four Top 10 successes on the UK Singles Chart. They have sold 2.5 million records worldwide. The band consists of Jade Jones, Rahsaan J Bromfield, Andrez Harriott, and Noel Simpson.
The band was formed by Rahsaan "Ras" Bromfield and Noel Simpson who were students at the Barbara Speake Stage School in the London neighbourhood of Acton. They rapped and danced at school assemblies. Jade Jones was brought into the band when Bromfield and Simpson heard him sing a high note. Andrez Harriott, a student at Sylvia Young Theatre School, was recruited after he and Jones performed together in the musical play Carmen Jones. Coreé Richards was asked to join the band after he was heard singing at a bus stop.
Harriott and Jones performed for a while in their band CherryBlackStone. Jones is now a trainee chef. Damage performed a one-off gig at Party in the Park in Leeds, on 25 July 2010.
In early 2014, Damage reformed as a quartet without Richards for the ITV2 documentary The Big Reunion along with other bands such as Eternal and A1, although Richards did appear on the show to talk about the band and meet with his bandmates one last time.
