Singer-songwriter Anthony D’Amato’s latest album Cold Snap follows his 2014 release The Shipwreck from the Shore, which was inspired in part by his time studying with the Pulitzer Prize”“winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon. Backed by members of Bon Iver and Megafaun, D’Amato earned raves for the 2014 album 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.” USA Today wrote that it “strikes every right note,” SPIN praised the way he “turns heartbreak into cheery folk,” and Entertainment Weekly said the music “calls to mind Simon & Garfunkel’s more amped-up moments.” Songs from the record collectively cracked more than three million plays on Spotify and turned up on ABC’s hit series Nashville, while the album earned additional love everywhere from the New York Times and Wall Street Journal to New York Magazine and Billboard.
