Anthony D'Amato is a talented multi-instrumentalist with a self-assured, deceptively mature sound. After hearing this week's "World Cafe: Next," you might be surprised to learn that he's is just 22, but you won't be surprised to learn that he wrote his thesis on Bruce Springsteen. After graduating from Princeton a little over a year ago, the young singer-songwriter is already gaining recognition as a talented young voice in the Americana music scene.

D'Amato single-handedly wrote, recorded and produced his latest album, Down Wires, in his college dorm room. His efforts paid off, landing him positive critical regard and a string of dates opening for Pete Yorn and Ben Kweller on their recent tour of the U.S.

Hear two songs from Down Wires on this week's "World Cafe: Next."
