Singer and songwriter Michael D’Amore was born in upstate N.Y. and raised and resided in New Jersey for most of his life. Coming from a musical family, it wasn’t a surprise that his passion would eventually become his livelihood.
For more than 26 years, Michael has been a professional entertainer based out of the New York metropolitan area. Having performed in several genres, Michael eventually found himself drawn to the harmony of the Classic R & B and Doo Wop sounds.
Michael currently performs as a one man show showcasing the best of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s as well as playing with several bands. He has had the pleasure of backing up and continues to perform with Jim Yester. Jim Yester is an original founding member and lead singer of the 60’s group “The Association.” He has been singing harmony at its best with songs like “Windy,” “Along Comes Mary,” “Never My Love,” and “Cherish” to name a few.
He has had the pleasure to work as a “Duo” with recent Blues Hall Of Fame inductee Angel Rissoff doing blue eyed soul hits by groups like the Righteous Brothers and also performs regularly with a group called “The YesterDaze.” He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with groups such as “The Stylistics,” “Lou Christie,” “The Duprees,” “The Tokens,” “The Flamingos,” “Larry Chance and the Earls,” “Kenny Vance and the Planotones” and so many groups he has admired over the years.
In 2012, his latest CD “In Harmony” was met with great success. “This is a labor of love and such a great source of pride.” In Harmony is special because Michael played and sang every part on this CD which was something he always wanted to do.
Michael continues to strive for perfection in his craft and will always measure his level of success by the number of smiles in his audiences.
