Finding himself at home with a broken finger in the midst of his tour cycle, insanely talented troubadour Anthony D’Amato took some time to write a new song called “If You’re Gonna Build A Wall”. The artist premiered a demo of the new tune on NPR, saying of the song: “I found myself being bombarded by the 24-hour news cycle every time I turned on the TV or went online,” D’Amato . “This song, ‘If You’re Gonna Build A Wall,’ was just my natural reaction to that.”
Mother Church Pew recently caught up with the artist while he was visiting the Music City to perform at this year’s AmericanaFest. The modern folk maestro has been riding a wave of success touring around the world supporting his latest release, 2014’s The Shipwreck From The Shore.
He performed an acoustic version of “If You’re Gonna Build A Wall” just for us at local studio, Villain Place, check it out here:
