Anthony D'Amato is an American songwriter and singer signed to New West Records. His latest album is 2016's 'Cold Snap,' produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) and featuring performances by Conor Oberst and members of Bright Eyes, The Faint, and Cursive.
D'Amato grew up in Blairstown, New Jersey, and attended college at Princeton University, where he recorded his first album 'Down Wires' in a dormitory during his senior year. He released the record independently in 2010, catching the attention of NPR, which called his song "My Father's Son" a "modern folk gem," and the World Cafe, which featured him in their emerging artist series "Next."
D'Amato followed it up with another home recording, 'Paper Back Bones,' which made BBC Scotland's Best Americana Albums of 2012, and was described by host Ricky Ross as "one of [our] favourites of all time."
