Anthony Rossomando

Anthony Rossomando is a Grammy-winning songwriter who has worked with artists including Sia, Florence Welch, and The Kaiser Chiefs. As a member of The Libertines and a founding member of Dirty Pretty Things and The Damn Personals, he has toured the world playing some of the biggest stages alongside the likes of The Strokes and Arcade Fire. He recently co-wrote the song "Shallow" with Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, and Andrew Wyatt for the film A Star Is Born, as performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

Topping the charts in numerous countries, "Shallow" has received prestigious accolades including The Golden Globes' Best Original Song, Critics' Choice Awards' Best Song and Grammy nominations for Song of the Year, Record of Year, Best Pop/Duo Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media (winning the latter two).

Rossomando founded The Damn Personals, which became a mainstay of the Boston, Providence, and New York indie scenes. In 2003, he toured the U.S. with The Libertines and later joined them on a worldwide tour, filling in for Pete Doherty. It was during this time that Carl Barat and Rossomando connected and began sharing ideas that would eventually lead to the formation of Dirty Pretty Things, following The Libertines' split. 

Dirty Pretty Things released their first album Waterloo to Anywhere in 2006. It reached number three on the U.K. charts, with the lead single “Bang Bang You’re Dead” peaking at number four.

Rossomando has also worked with Klaxons and '90s ska band J.C. Superska.
