I’ve always known Anthony D’Amato not as a musician, but a publicist (thanks for hooking me up with my Macklemore interview, yo). So a couple of months ago, I was surprised to get a bounce-back email that said he had left his day job to pursue music full-time. The email included links to a couple of songs, at Spin and NPR (so I really should of heard them before). Luckily, Anthony emailed me a copy of his upcoming debut album (released next month; most of which is absolutely terrific, by the way). Here’s one taste, with an endearing video that could really be the plot of a coming-of-age movie.
