Anthony D’Amato – The Shipwreck From the Shore

  • February 16, 2015

New Jersey native Anthony D’Amato’s start in songcraft began in Ivy League academia, with his mentor Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Paul Muldoon critiquing his early work while at Princeton. D’Amato’s self-recorded modern folk albums gained critical praise from popular and respected media such as NPR, The New York Times, and Paste. 2014’s The Shipwreck from the Shore is D’Amato’s first full-band album, and was recorded with Matt McCaughan (drums, Bon Iver), Brad Cook (bass, Megafaun), and Sam Kassirer (producer, keys). Standout tracks include: the lover’s laments “Was a Time” and “If It Don’t Work Out”; the forlorn atmospheric “Ludlow”; and the lyrically rousing “Back Back Back”, “Cold Comfort,” and “Hard to Say.” The Shipwreck from The Shore is an excellent album from a talented up-and-comer – definitely keep your eye on Anthony D’Amato! – Written by JFelton
