The band and I recently visited NPR headquarters in Washington, DC, to tape a Tiny Desk Concert. It was an honor to stand in the same spot as Jackson Browne, Wilco, The National, Adele and more to take part in this series, and to have NPR compare the songs to Bruce Springsteen and Josh Ritter was just icing on the cake. Hope you dig the performance and spread it far and wide!

About Anthony D'Amato
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).
