Asleep In My Shoes (2011), the latest album from Philadelphia’s Joe D’Amico is bursting with surprises and bold arrangements. With each song, and within each song, a different leaf is unturned and a new idea explored, bringing experimentation and great songwriting together in a solid and thought out effort. Utilizing area studios such as Ardmore’s MilkBoy and Berks Counties Moonlight Forest, as well as his own home studio, the album came together in 2010 and was mixed by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog).
From his beginnings in the nationally recognized band Brothers Past to his currently buzzing Roots/Americana project Mason Porter; Joe has shown the rare ability to cross and blend genres with great success. This is clearly evident in his latest solo release. Free from the band dynamic and the ticking clock of a studio, creating at his own pace, Joe has put together his best and most creative material yet.
