About This Event
When people first meet Daniel Donato, they are not fully braced for this walking tornado of creative energy. They think theres something that tips the scale in ways they do not understand, says Donato about his over-the-top, slightly manic vibe. But what actually 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 Mans Country, his proper introduction to the general musical audience. Recorded at Nashvilles Sound Emporium in a mere two days and produced by guitar-ace Robben Ford, the record weaves outlaw country, Grateful Dead-style Americana, and first-rate songwriting into a singular form Donato calls 21st-century cosmic country.
