Biography

Combining acoustic indie folk and soul, Dante is known for his expressive vocals and multi-instrumental style.  Rooted in tradition yet fearlessly creative, Dante’s live performances include his contemporary take on the one man band in which he simultaneously plays a number of instruments.  Switching between guitar and mandolin, he accompanies himself by playing bass, harmonica and percussion all at once.  Coming from the folk tradition, Dante's award winning compositions have thoughtful lyrics that often tell a story or speak to a person’s life experiences.  

Described by The Independent as a “multi-talented musician,” he was chosen to star in Levi’s "What's True" commercial campaign.  Newsday named Dante in their article, "Best of the Hamptons" and he was voted Best Male Musician by the popular Hampton’s publication, Dan's Papers.  Artists such as Ben Folds, Guster, and America have included him as an opening act for their tours and festival performances.   

Being a socially conscious musician, Dante prioritizes giving back through benefit performances and has partnered with organizations such as the FDNY, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and The Surfrider Foundation. 

Dante is gearing up to release an album in April 2019 and will be touring the US this summer.
