Produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) and recorded with contributions from an Omaha all-star team including Conor Oberst and members of Bright Eyes, The Faint, and Cursive, ‘Cold Snap’ is Anthony D’Amato’s most ambitious record yet. Rolling Stone hailed the album as “folk music raised on New Jersey grit” and named D’Amato an Artist You Need To Know, while Newsweek called his songwriting “smartly sweet.”
The record follows D’Amato’s 2014 New West debut, ‘The Shipwreck From The Shore,’ which was inspired in part by his time studying with Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon. The record earned raves on both sides of the pond, with NPR inviting D’Amato for a Tiny Desk Concert and lauding that“he writes in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen or Josh Ritter,” and Uncut proclaiming that his songwriting “echoes with early Bob Dylan.” Songs from the record collectively cracked more than six million streams on Spotify and turned up on the hit series Nashville.
D’Amato’s latest release is a benefit for refugee aid titled ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’The stripped-down EP reimagines tracks that have taken on new political weight in the modern era (from Bob Marley to Mr. Rogers) and features contributions from a host of musical pals including Josh Ritter, Sean Watkins, Israel Nash.
