New York, NY
With one foot in folk and the other foot loose and wandering into various other genres, Anthony da Costa released his eighth record in 2009, “Not Afraid of Nothing,” which “has the lyrical quality of a John Prine album” (Twangville). He recently completed his latest album, a rock/Americana effort called “Secret Handshake.”
In 2009, Anthony was named an MSNBC.com "Top 5 Up-&-Coming Young Singer" and a "WFUV-FM New Artist To Watch." In 2008, he released two, critically-acclaimed albums and was a Folk Alliance "Emerging Artist of the Year" nominee. In 2007, at 16, he became the youngest winner ever at the Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festivals.
