Daniel Donato When people first meet
When people first meet Daniel Donato, they’re not fully braced for this walking tornado of creative energy. “They think there’s something that tips the scale in ways they don’t understand,” says Donato about his over-the-top, slightly manic vibe. “But what actual-ly tips the scale is the amount of thought and analysis I put into my work and art, all of which is taken from the lessons of my life.”
Donato, a 25-year-old Nashville native, has distilled those life lessons into his debut album, A Young Man’s Country, his proper introduction to the general musical audi-ence. Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium in a mere two days and produced by guitar-ace Robben Ford, the record weaves outlaw country, Grateful Dead-style Amer-icana, and first-rate songwriting into a singular form Donato calls “21st-century cosmic country.”
The End Of America
TEOA (The End of America) is a band of friends who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. The Philadelphia/NYC/New Hampshire based trio credit their name to Kerouac’s “On The Road.” Their sound weaves three distinct lead vocals into captivating harmonies over a solid foundation of folk, rock and Americana.
