Anthony D’Amato releases his forthcoming album, ‘The Shipwreck From The Shore,” a riveting 10-track collection. The NYC-based songwriter is growing from his early homespun self-recorded solo acoustic work to a more ambitious, full-band sound. The album was recorded at The Great North Sound Society, an 18th Century farmhouse-turned-studio deep in the woods of Maine, and features Matt McCaughan of Bon Iver on drums, Brad Cook of Megafun on bass, and producer/keyboardist Sam Kassirer’s (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim) rich production. D'Amato's songs are self-mined, wailing tales of moving past life's dramas bolstered by waves of drums and guitars.

About Anthony D'Amato

Bio

Anthony D'Amato first came to national attention with 2010's ‘Down Wires,’ which he recorded with a single microphone in his college bedroom. The album earned praise everywhere from NPR and The New York Times to Paste and American Songwriter, along with a nod from The World Cafe for their emerging artist series “Next" (past artists include Fleet Foxes and Dawes). He followed it up with another home recording, 'Paper Back Bones,' which BBC Scotland named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012. Dates in the US and Europe with Josh Ritter, Rhett Miller, Pete Yorn, Ben Kweller, Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Pug, Gretchen Peters, Israel Nash, and more ensued, in addition to performances at the iconic Newport Folk Festival and Glasgow's Celtic Connections.

In 2013, D'Amato signed with New West Records, home to Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, and Patty Griffin among others, and headed to The Great North Sound Society in Maine with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim) and members of Bon Iver and Megafaun to record his studio/label debut, 'The Shipwreck From The Shore' (due out 9/2).
