Recorded with members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, and Josh Ritter’s band, Anthony D’Amato’s New West Records debut, The Shipwreck From The Shore, has earned praise everywhere from NPR and The NY Times (who premiered the album) to SPIN and Billboard to Uncut and Entertainment Weekly for its brand of heavy-hearted folk shot through with electric streaks of rock and roll. Veering away from the homemade DIY production style that marked his early work, D’Amato relocated to producer Sam Kassirer’s Great North Sound Society, an 18th-century farmhouse-turned-studio in rural Maine, to cut the album raw and fast in just eleven days.

D’Amato first came to national attention with 2010’s Down Wires, which he recorded with a single microphone in his college bedroom and NPR dubbed “a modern folk gem.” He followed it up with another home recording, Paper Back Bones, which BBC Scotland named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012. Since then he’s shared bills with Josh Ritter, Justin Townes Earle, Rhett Miller, Pete Yorn, Ben Kweller, Bleachers, Ben Folds, Joe Pug, Shawn Colvin, Twin Peaks, Band of Heathens, and more, in addition to performing at the iconic Newport Folk Festival, Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, Mumford & Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Festival, and the Americana Festival in Nashville, where his set was named one NPR’s favorite live performances of the year.
