Biography

Marybeth D’Amico (Da-MI-co) is known for literate songs that tell dark little stories. Her 2008 debut, Heaven, Hell, Sin & Redemption, was peopled with accused murderers,prostitutes and rebellious teenagers. Perhaps due to her journalistic background, the singer-songwriter seems naturally drawn to themes that have an edge to them. “But I still like people to be able to sing along,” insists Marybeth, who recently returned to the States after a long hiatus in Europe. The release of her second album, The Light Inside, finds the New Jersey native taking a more personal look at the forces of darkness. The album deftly combines these personal reflections with her signature character-driven tunes, in an effort that one critic said “approaches the level of established artists such as Lori McKenna, Patty Griffin, Eliza Gilkyson and Kimmie Rhodes.”
Neither do the songs on The Light Inside easily settle into one genre. “Stubborn Land” could be straight from the Linda Ronstadt country-rock era, “Star-Crossed” the folk ballad Gillian Welch never wrote and “Der Grenzer”—featuring producer Bradley Kopp’s gritty electric guitar — demonstrates a CSNY-style groove. Austin-based Kopp (Iain Matthews, Eliza Gilkyson, Jimmie Dale Gilmore) has brought together world-class musicians for D’Amico’s sophomore effort. Featured are Paul Pearcy (The Dixie Chicks, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Willie Nelson) on drums, Glenn Fukunaga (Bob Dylan, Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo) on bass, David Webb (Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy La Fave, Eric Taylor) on keyboards, Mark Hallman (Carole King, Iain Matthews, Dan Fogelberg) on mandolin, mandola and bouzouki, with Kopp himself accompanying the band on acoustic and electric guitars.

    Well, you were about to lead my weekly charts, but the wifes' George Jone obsession put that to rest...

    Marybeth, thank you for the shout and letting me know about "Down within the Darkness." I've had to withdraw some from the last.fm community (not by choice) so I appreciated hearing from you. Still love HHSR. Wish I had it within my power to get you the recognition and rewards you deserve. Blessings.
