I both Simon-ed AND Garfunkel-ed, all for "America." While you're listening, share some love with Lithophyte Photography / Vivian Wang, who's a special kind of photographer/friend for indulging my stupidity when it comes to recreating classic album covers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd3jWcxnTt0
**LOW TICKET ALERT** Less than 10 spots left for July 24th in NYC! Once they're gone they're gone for good, so grab 'em now while you still can: https://bitly.com/2K8mHkk
Sad to say that due to torrential downpours for the past week, the grounds for the Rockland-Bergen Music Festival are unsuitable for stages and crowds, and the outdoor performances this weekend (including mine) have had to be cancelled. BUT, I'll be back in the area July 24 for a special show at Rockwood Music Hall to preview all the new music I have coming out later this year. It'll be an intimate solo set with limited space, and you can reserve your spot right here: https://bit.ly/2K8mHkk
It’s World Refugee Day today, and so far ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ has raised almost $7,000 for The International Rescue Committee’s urgent work around the world. The physical EP has long since sold out, but thanks to Spotify it continues to raise funds every single time you play a track, so if you can’t donate directly, give it a stream or two today and you just might recognize some familiar voices along the way like Josh Ritter, Sean Watkins, Michaela Anne, Lizzie No , and Miwi La Lupa! https://open.spotify.com/album/7mr65EthWJRSzJ6AvoIj3S?si=gy4VyLu7TjqVcC40kRKohQ
NYC! Half the tickets for July 24 are already gone, so go ahead and grab your spots for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEMOS now while you still can: https://bit.ly/2K8mHkk It'll be an intimate, acoustic jaunt through the ol' songwriting notebook. Can't wait to share what I've been cooking up!
Had so much fun with Rhett Miller in Seattle that we've added three more shows next week in Milwaukee, Chicago, and Sellersville. Plus I'll be playing the Rockland-Bergen Music Festival with John Prine, Joe Purdy, Joe D'Urso, and lots more folks whose names don't start with J. All tickets on sale now! AND, speaking of J, July 24th I'll be trying something new and special right here in NYC called NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEMOS. It'll be an intimate solo acoustic testing ground for brand new songs, and it WILL sell out, so get your tickets now: https://bitly.com/2K8mHkk Photo: Lithophyte Photography / Vivian Wang
Got a whole lot of new music that I just can't wait to share with you any longer, so I'm going to try something really special on July 24 that we're calling NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEMOS! It'll be an intimate NYC acoustic show at Rockwood Music Hall's Stage 3, and if you're one of the few to fit in the room, you'll get to hear a bunch of brand new tunes for the first time along with some of your old favorites in the stripped-down acoustic setting I originally wrote them. Stage 3 is small and THIS WILL SELL OUT, so I strongly advise you to get your tickets ASAP. They're on-sale today right here: https://bit.ly/2K8mHkk Hope to see you at the show!!

I'm collecting donations for the annual Parkinson's Unity Walk Qld this weekend on behalf of Team Light of Day Foundation! I've played shows on three continents for LOD and I'm happy to be able to support them with an event right here in New York City. Consider donating to the cause if you can spare it; 100% of donations go to Parkinson's research! http://support.unitywalk.org/goto/anthony_damato
New live video of "Passing Through" just dropped via The Netherlands' long-running 2 Meter Sessies. This was filmed at the amazing Electric Monkey studio in Amsterdam-Noord. Check it out below! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnLfg1dIbwY
