Dante Palminteri

Dante Palminteri

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 poetic 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.
An early sufferer of anxiety and dyslexia, Dante found solace in the last place one would expect: written word. Dreaming up lyrics on teen heartbreak and defying the status quo, he set his sights on a long-term career in songwriting, eventually strumming his way into Berklee College of Music.
Lyrics about teenage angst and high school crushes quickly evolved into more complex compilations about unrequited love, soul mates lost and found, and the growing pains of adulthood. Bringing together the pop sounds of his musical contemporaries and the hard rock roots of his past, Dante brought an original vision to his debut EP, “From Me To You,” released in January 2018.
Struck by the lyrical prowess of Americana muses Jason Isbell and The Tallest Man On Earth, Dante spent the year ahead exploring his roots, weaving personal narratives on the intricacies of falling in love with whimsical acoustic melodies. To closeout 2018, he released single “Beautiful,” a playful day-dreamy track inspired by the simple every-dayness of being in a relationship.
Now, the young crooner kicks off 2019 with floaty, synth-pop record, “Miles Apart” – a heartfelt reflection on the regret and longing felt after an abrupt breakup. Simultaneously toeing between stories of love lost and won, Dante reflects on his own vulnerability, recounting real-life experiences facing rejection and loneliness, alongside feelings of heartfelt passion and intimacy. In a bold move, he’s bared it all on stages across the Tri-State area, from Feinstein’s 54Below and Arlene’s Grocery, to Rockwood Music Hall and Bethlehem Musikfest.
