"This artist is a diamond in the rough."  - Music Connection Magazine

Known for his raw vocals and fearless creativity, New York City native Dante Mazzetti credits New York City's vibrant cultural landscape in shaping his eclectic Alternative Roots sound.  


Mazzetti began his musical career as a teenager in the exploding music scene of New York City’s Lower East Side, but after September 11th in 2001, he made the pivotal decision to leave music and join the Fire Department of New York.  While music took a backseat, Mazzetti served the people of his city and was awarded one of the FDNY’s highest awards for his heroism during a deadly apartment building fire.


Mazzetti made his official return to music with the release of Hotel, a full-length album that received critical acclaim by the international press.  As a multi-instrumentalist, Mazzetti plays most of the instruments on his albums, and during his live performances, he can be seen playing a number of different instruments - sometimes all at once.
