Anthony D’Amato to support Ian Felice

10th September, 2017

Some of you may have heard the news that Gill Landry can no longer support Ian Felice’s Leeds show. Now, we thought it wasn’t fair to dangle someone as good as Gill in front of you and then take him away. So, we’ve pulled it out of the bag and only gone and got Anthony D’Amato to take a night out of his schedule as tour support to Ricky Ross (Deacon Blue) to come to Leeds and open up this show!! Exciting times!

‘Cold Snap’ (2016) is Anthony D’Amato’s most ambitious record yet – 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. Rolling Stone hailed it as “folk music raised on New Jersey grit” and named D’Amato an Artist You Need To Know.

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 the Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon and earned raves on both sides of the pond, with NPR 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 five million plays on Spotify and turned up on the ABC series Nashville.
