Full Band NYC Show w/ Joe Fletcher & Jonah Tolchin
Last weekend’s sold-out show with Joe Pug and Bhi Bhiman was an absolute blast.

FULL BAND show with Joe Fletcher and Jonah Tolchin, who I met performing at the 2012 Newport Folk...

Very excited to say that My Old Kentucky Blog is exclusively premiering the first track from ‘Paper Back Bones,’ “On the Banks of the River Where I Died.” Richard Morgan writes: “Of the myriad of artists I’ve profiled for MOKB few, if any, are blessed with the undistilled talent of Anthony D’Amato.” Check out the song here: http://bit.ly/GPYgxR ...

Asbury Park Press Pick
Kind words from The Asbury Park Press in advance of Sunday night’s show with Alejandro Escovedo: “Blairstown-raised, Princeton-educated folk singer Anthony D’Amato has carved a niche for himself in a sea of singer-songwriters with his strong vocals, solid guitar playing and thought-provoking song lyrics…Given his reputation as a lyricist, it’s fitting that he opens a show ...
