ABOUT BOMBADIL: “Quirky, multi-textured, wildly inventive, eclectic, and hugely enjoyable,” “a combination of open-minded chamber folk and the bright and sunny pop music of the 1960s,” and “Syd Barrett meets The Beatles” are just some of the media accolades used to describe Bombadil, a band that has been building a steady buzz, catching the attention and support of media outlets like the New York Times, NPR, and Diffuser.

ABOUT ANTHONY D’AMATO: Recorded with members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, and Josh Ritter’s band, Anthony D’Amato’s New West Records debut ‘The Shipwreck From The Shore’ has already earned praise from Entertainment Weekly and The NY Times to SPIN and Billboard. NPR named him to their favorite live shows of 2014 and said “D’Amato sings and writes in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen or Josh Ritter,” USA Today said the new album “strikes every right note,” and Uncut wrote that it “echoes with early Bob Dylan.” Check out his NPR Tiny Desk Concert here: http://youtu.be/LiGTTICtewQ
