Biography

Hailing from New Jersey and a newly-minted Princeton graduate, Anthony D’Amato is an as-yet-unsigned folk musician whose music leans towards alt-country Americana. His songs, in lyrical content and style, bring to mind the works of artists like Joe Purdy, Wilco, and the Avett Brothers. Although not currently associated with any label, Mr. D’Amato has gained indie acclaim in the past two years with his most recent album releases, “Shades of the Prison House” (2009) and “Down Wires”, which debuted in October 2010. In 2009, The New York Post included one of D’Amato’s songs from “Shades of…” on their year-end “Best of” list and since then he has been increasingly featured in print and online sources including The New York Times, Paste Magazine, Spinner.com, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Slowcoustic. Mr. D’Amato has also been highlighted as “one to watch” this past year on iTunes, AOL Spinner, and on NPR as of January 2011, when his layered and melodious “My Father’s Son” made “Song of the Day” for January 19th. A talented multi-instrumentalist and mixer, Mr. D’Amato is credited for playing the guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, pedal steel, keyboards and harmonica on the tracks that comprise his most recent musical venture, “Down Wires” and for mixing and producing it, a part at a time, from inside his Princeton dorm room.
