TWOFER TUESDAY

Indie Americana/folk group Fantastic Cat is a collaboration between singer-songwriters Don DiLego, Anthony D'Amato, Brian Dunne, and Hollis Brown frontman Mike Montali. This band is fun and has a great sense of humor.


They didn’t have a band name picked out when they all got together. They happened to ask a waitress at a bar what they should call themselves, she quickly replied Fantastic Cat. The name fits with their sense of humor and it stuck. They released their self-titled EP in 2021 and quickly caught the attention of the industry. Their music is a mix of folk, rock, country, and Americana, and their songwriting is catchy and fun. They released their debut album in 2022 to critical acclaim with Rolling Stone magazine calling it a “wildly satisfying collection of folk, rock, country, Americana and good old rock and roll.”


Their sound has remnants of Springsteen and Dylan. They just released their sophomore album, Now That’s What I Call Fantastic Cat with their new single,” So Glad You Made It” featuring Counting Crows Adam Duritz and Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels. Check out their album you won’t be sorry. They are now on tour and be sure to check them out live. Support independent music and musicians. Happy listening!
