Following the announcement of Ryan Adams retirement/sabatical from music, I was looking for someone to fill that alt-country void. Since discovering him about 4 years ago, Ryan has been my favorite artists behind Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, and it was a pleasant surprise to stumble across another artist that has the amazing songwriting abilities along with a voice that can be haunting, uplifting and moving at the same time. Anthony Da Costa is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from NY, and has already released 4 solo albums and collaborated on 4 more. He was recently named a WFUV’s artist to watch, and looks like he has a very bright future in the music business. The following tracks are from Anthony’s collboration with Abbie Gardner, “Bad Nights/Better Days“. I want to give a big thanks to Heather at Fuel Friends for making me aware of Anthony.
