JOHN D’AMATO -‘BORN BLUE: THE SUN SESSIONS’
BY RHETTA

John D’Amato establishes that Born Blue is a blues album with the song titles that run through it: “Helicopter Blues,” “Chicken Blues,” and “True to the Blues,” for example. But it is two songs on the album that really establish his personal connection to the blues: “Born Blue” and “Blues Man.”

9/15 CLUB SCOUT: JOHN D’AMATO BRINGING THE BLUES TO DOWNTOWN SPRINGFIELD By George Lenker | Club Scout | September 22, 2015
Most good music comes from the heart, or so they say, but in the case of John D'Amato, the meaning is literal.
D'Amato, the blues man who will play Theodores' in Springfield on Thursday night, earned the right to sing the blues due to a condition he was born with: coarctation of the aorta. The condition is a narrowing of part of the aorta, which caused D'Amato to have serious circulation problems rights after he was born.
