78 years ago today Woody Guthrie wrote the lyrics to one of his most iconic songs. Head over to Rolling Stone to hear my reimagining of it to benefit refugee aid via the International Rescue Committee (with some help from a *very* special guest on harmonies): https://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/anthony-damatos-woody-guthrie-cover-hear-this-land-w488201
Was honored to be asked back to Princeton University to sing some songs and talk about music. Check out an exclusive performance of "Ballad Of The Undecided," which I first demoed in my senior year dorm room, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSbQS7853j4
Magical moment playing tag with the horses during a midnight snowstorm last night. The moonlight was so bright reflecting off the snow that you could see everything as clear as day, and the horses were so powerful and majestic and happy to play with us. They’d run up alongside as we rode our snow bikes, and then we’d ride toward them and they’d run away. The sound of their hooves pounding in the falling snow as they galloped was unforgettable. Only a couple days of recording left!
Celebrate Valentine's Day with what Entertainment Weekly called "the most disastrous wedding ever." I had so much fun shooting this video with The Kuperman Brothers and all my pals. Watch it on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/y7WWO2EOiBY
Today would have been Bob Marley's 73rd Birthday, so it seemed like an appropriate time to revisit this version of "One Love," which I was inspired to record with Lizzie No for the 'Wont You Be My Neighbor?' charity EP after my tour with Ziggy Marley. Every Spotify stream adds up to more donations for The International Rescue Committee's refugee aid efforts around the world: http://spoti.fi/2C138CB
A freezing Friday treat from Cologne, Germany! I was honored to film this special performance of "If It Don't Work Out" for the amazing Cardinal Sessions series. It was so cold I had to keep my hat and gloves on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLo77THs6LA
While I was in Europe, NJ PBS aired a story about me and the charity EP on State of the Arts, and you can catch the whole thing online now (including a bunch of live performances from Outpost in the Burbs)! Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuuio8Zlvo8
This check brings the refugee EP up over $4500 donated to The International Rescue Committee so far. There was a lot of bullshit in 2017, but also a hell of a lot of kindness and generosity and stepping up for the people who need it most. Thank you to Josh Ritter, Michaela Anne, The Mastersons, Miwi La Lupa, Lizzie No, Israel Nash, and Sean Watkins for being a part of it, to Spotify/Spotify NYC/Spotify Boston for making sure people can still hear it and contribute even after it sold out this summer, and most especially to everyone who’s bought and/or streamed it.
I got asked about this song every night on tour in Europe, so I filmed a special performance of it for BBC Scotland's Another Country With Ricky Ross. Preview "Ludlow" below and watch the full exclusive here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05q7tvh
