Growing up between the East and West coasts, American singer-songwriter and actor Dante Palminteri matured his musical styling at an early age, drawing inspiration from John Mayer's lyrical mastery of the human psyche and Ed Sheeran's genre-defying melodies.
As a teenager, he took center stage as the lead vocalist of New York-based metal band Kaymus, having learned how to fuse his vibrant sound with the edgier chords of think-outside-the-box bands, Tool and Audioslave. During his time studying songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston, lyrics about teenage angst and high school crushes soon turned into more complex compilations about unrequited love, soul mates lost and found, and life's emotional roller coaster. Bringing together the pop sounds of his musical contemporaries and the hard rock roots of his past, Dante has brought an original vision to his debut EP, “From Me To You.” Having toured locally around the Tri-state area over the years, Dante laid the groundwork for a busy year with shows at iconic venues such as Feinstein’s 54Below, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and a slot at the 2018 Bethlehem Musikfest. Early next year, he plans to embark on a bicoastal tour hitting major musical hubs from Boston to Los Angeles.
