"Top Prospects of 2019...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. "New York City is a place where happiness, tragedy, anger and love intersect on street corners daily. It’s the ultimate experiment. Thousands of people from all walks of life, all the cultures of the world. Lyrical and musical inspiration is everywhere," Mazzetti muses.
Mazzetti began his musical career as a teenager in the exploding musical 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, 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.
In 2019, Mazzetti made his official return to music and in 2020, he released Hotel, a full length album which 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.
