Dante's musical career began with the release of his first solo record, Bitter Sweet, in 2005. Like most artists, he has grown exponentially since that first project and today works as both a solo acoustic act and also as the lead singer and front man for his rock band, Dante & the Hawks. The Hawks have recently released a new EP titled, Into the Wild, which is an honest glimpse of the fun chemistry that exists in the band. It is soaked with infectious pop melodies and upbeat hooks that will leave you humming along for days.
As a solo acoustic artist, Dante has been strongly influenced by several genres of music. However, his original material has always been deeply rooted in folk and rock & roll. In 2008, he even collaborated with R&B producer Joshua Norman to release a CD titled, The Steps Between. And in 2010 he worked with producers Jordan Elder and Jared Evans to release his first praise and worship recording titled, Footprints.
Dante performs a compelling list of original compositions in his live act, but also pulls from a long list of cover songs. His ability to read a room and connect with his audience has become one of his greatest strengths. More than anything he wants to leave his listeners with an emotional connection. Whether it's humorous, fun, poignant, introspective, or even spiritual, he strongly believes in the power of music to enrich the lives of people everywhere.
Dante has been working full time as musician for almost four years now and is constantly booking performance dates and touring all over the US. Please checkout his website for more information and also keep in touch on Facebook for daily updates.
