Vienna D’Amato Hall is an androgynous mind of the 21st Century.
Her work explores recurring motifs like sexuality and freedom. Hall’s fresh and daring take results in music that is at once erotic, intellectual, and visceral.
Hall landed her first job as lyricist and musician at The Actors Studio, New York, for a special rendition of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. After a successful run, Hall released It’s What the Dog Saw.
It’s What The Dog Saw (2015) is a coming-of-age EP with a blues-rock aesthetic. Reviews liken Hall’s poetry to a budding Leonard Cohen and her musical intensity to a young Sinead O’Connor.
Red Light Temple (2016) defies genre. The soundscape is at once grunge, electronic, and Celtic-rock. The album’s edgy production mirrors its concept; Red Light Temple explores liminality and allows space for contradiction.
In early 2017, Hall performed as a special guest for Ellen Burstyn’s Inaugurate Love at the United Palace, New York.
Later that year, Hall headlined The Spring Pulse Poetry Festival in Cobalt, Ontario.
Hall performed an opening set for Serena Ryder at Day in the District Festival.
And ended the year with a tour of the UK.
Long-Stay Hotel (2019) draws a fine-tooth comb through the world of forever hotel rooms. Applauded for its blend of “Joni Mitchell sensibilities and P.J. Harvey intensity,” Long-Stay Hotel is dubbed her best yet.
