Anthony da Costa
Anthony da Costa is no stranger to the music world. At age 13 he started writing songs and playing out anywhere he could, and his career as a singer/songwriter never really stopped. In the last decade, he’s lived in New York City, Austin, TX and most recently, Nashville, TN, all of which have shaped him as a musician and led to countless opportunities and collaborations.
da Costa has released many albums over the course of his career, most recently a solo LP (I Should Call My Mother) which features guest vocals from Katie Pruitt and songs co-written with Courtney Marie Andrews and Steve Poltz. His 2021 LP (What Plans?) was self-recorded during the quarantine and includes a duet with Madison Cunningham.
For the last several years, da Costa has also been consistently touring, sharing bills with bands such as Big Thief, The Milk Carton Kids, and Loretta Lynn, and sharing stages with Joy Williams (The Civil Wars), Sunny War, Sarah Jarosz, Molly Tuttle, and Yola, just to name a few. A musician’s musician with a color palette of his own, da Costa has recently begun producing albums for fellow artists out of his East Nashville studio.
During his time as a sideman and producer, da Costa’s desire to write and release songs of his own has remained steady. His upcoming EP (Don’t Worry About Me) features 5 brand new songs recorded during a summer in Portland, Oregon. This collection sets out to reinforce who da Costa is, and who he has always been: an earnest songwriter and an artist on his own merit.
