I am so thrilled and honored to be able to say that I’ve signed a record deal with New West, home to Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, Patty Griffin, and so many other amazing artists who I love and have inspired me. They’ll be releasing my new album, which I recorded with members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, and Josh Ritter’s band, in 2014. More on that soon, but in the meantime, Billboard is exclusively premiering my first music video. It’s for a new song called “Ludlow,” which I recorded with Jocie Adams from The Low Anthem/Arc Iris, and you can check it out here: http://bit.ly/1iLxjA4
The video was directed by the incredibly talented Adam Makarenko (http://www.adammakarenko.com), who’s made amazing videos for Bowerbirds and Broken Social Scene among others. If you dig it, share it with your friends! I’ll be able to announce a lot more things in the near future, but first, I have to finish this album!

Just landed back in NYC…I’m proud and exhausted to say we’ve completed tracking on the new album! These days and nights at Great North Sound Society have been some of the most musically ambitious/challenging/rewarding I’ve ever experienced. So much music and a lot of big news that I can’t wait to share, but in the meantime I’ll be resuming my monthly gig at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC with a performance Saturday 11/9 at 8pm. See you there!

The time has come—I’m leaving today to begin work on my new record. There will be a LOT of big things to share about it soon, but for now all I can say is that I’ll be in the woods of Maine with members of Bon Iver/Megafaun/Josh Ritter’s band recording the most exciting songs I’ve ever written. No internet up there, but I’ll take lots of pictures and share news when I can. Here’s where I’m headed—-see you when I get back!

Last weekend’s sold-out show with Joe Pug and Bhi Bhiman was an absolute blast. Kronosphere said “the crowd was crazy quiet…so respectful…so enamored of an opening act like D’Amato,” but things are going to be rowdier this Friday night (3/1) at Bowery Electric. FULL BAND show with Joe Fletcher and Jonah Tolchin, who I met performing at the 2012 Newport Folk Festival.
You’ll wanna get tix early for this one: http://bit.ly/XWoPtY
See you there!
