Rusty Truck

RT returns for it's residency on first Thursdays, always with special guests.

Rusty Truck is fronted by Mark Seliger. He was born in Amarillo, TX and now resides in New York City. Before Seliger’s musical career began, however, he established himself as a world-renowned photographer. Today Seliger owns a studio in New York City’s West Village and is currently under contract with Condé Nast Publications, shooting for Vanity Fair and GQ. Previously, he was the Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone from 1992 to 2002. It was during that period Seliger also began writing his own music. Jakob Dylan heard Seliger’s material and was impressed enough to invite him to his studio to record and write. It’s been quite the journey since Seliger wrote Never Going Back” with Dylan, but the hard-earned collection of songs that comprise Luck’s Changing Lanes speaks for itself. Even Seliger is a little in awe of the accomplishment. Originally available as a limited release under the title Broken Promises, this debut album has been expanded and thoroughly re-imagined as Luck’s Changing Lanes, giving Mark Seliger’s songs and unique American imagery the presentation they deserve. The follow up album, Kicker Town.

Also Featuring:

Anthony D'Amato

Recorded with members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, and Josh Ritter's band, Anthony D'Amato's New West Records debut, 'The Shipwreck From The Shore,' has already earned praise from NPR and The NY Times to SPIN and Billboard for its brand of heavy-hearted folk shot through with electric streaks of rock and roll. Veering away from the homemade DIY production style that marked his early work, D'Amato relocated to producer Sam Kassirer's Great North Sound Society, an 18th-century farmhouse-turned-studio in rural Maine, to cut the album raw and fast in just eleven days.

D'Amato first came to national attention with 2010's 'Down Wires,' which he recorded with a single microphone in his college bedroom and NPR dubbed "a modern folk gem." He followed it up with another home recording, 'Paper Back Bones,' which BBC Scotland named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012. Dates in the US and Europe with Josh Ritter, Rhett Miller, Pete Yorn, Ben Kweller, Alejandro Escovedo, Mary Gauthier, Joe Pug, Gretchen Peters, Shawn Colvin, and more ensued, in addition to performances at the iconic Newport Folk Festival and Glasgow's Celtic Connections.
