“Like Leonard Cohen, and with a depth that places her in the same realm, Vienna D’Amato Hall makes continual allusion to the ancient spiritual traditions.” – Brian Aiken, BAS, New York City.
Vienna D’Amato Hall began her musical career in New York City, in 2014, after leaving a four year long career in the acting world. She was finished with interpreting and wanted to write. In the summer of that year, Vienna was hired on as the lyricist and singer for the Actors Studio’s production of Anton Chekov’s, “The Cherry Orchard,” starring Ellen Burstyn.
Her lyrical work has been compared to the realm of Leonard Cohen’s, and her blended, musical palette to that of Jackson Pollock’s.
In February of 2015, Vienna self-released her debut album, It’s What The Dog Saw, with Andre Fratto, New York based composer and producer, at the helm.
The two have worked together once again with the release of Vienna’s sophomore album, “Red Light Temple,” which was named TOP ALBUM by No More Divison blog. It is a driving album, which takes more risks, and plays a tug of war between the visceral and the intellectual, lyrically and musically.
Vienna was awarded The “Leading Edge Award” at the K-W Arts Awards this past summer. She has been touring in The United States, Canada, & Europe.
