Combining acoustic indie folk and soul, Dante Mazzetti is known for his expressive vocals and multi-instrumental style. Described as a “standout songwriter” (New Music Weekly), "multi-talented musician" (The Independent) and "a marksman of both vocal skill and finger-plucking" (B-Sides and Badlands), Mazzetti is rooted in tradition yet fearlessly creative. As a multi-instrumentalist, Mazzetti plays most of the instruments on his recordings and during his live performances he plays a number of instruments in addition to switching instruments throughout his show.
Mazzetti has opened for several major artists, such as Ben Folds, Guster, and America and was also chosen to star in Levi's "What's True" national television commercial campaign.
Mazzetti released Hotel Vol 1 on July 26, 2019. "Hey Now," the first track off of this EP, was described as including "a sprinkle of Prine, a dash of Dylan, a hint of Guthrie" (LA on Lock) and "more than earns its four-minutes-plus run time" (B-Sides and Badlands). It was included in many "best of" lists in the music blogosphere.
Mazzetti is currently in the studio working on the second EP in this series, Hotel Vol. 2. “Ugly,” the first song off of this album, was released on September 20, 2019. Keeping with the themes and story-telling from his July EP Hotel Vol. 1, “Ugly” continues the tale of a troubled man finding a new life and new challenges. Whereas Vol. 1 incorporated higher energy and excitement, Vol. 2 ventures into the slow tempo darkness. This four song album is set to be released on November 22, 2019. A portion of the proceeds from Hotel Vol. 2 and it’s release show will go to First Responders Children’s Foundation which supports the children of fallen and injured first responders such as firefighters and police officers. Being an FDNY firefighter himself, this charity is very near to Mazzetti’s heart.
