ALBUM: RELEASED 12/10/21
“Wilderness” explores the deep and desperate times that we’ve all endured throwout the past couple years. Relationships strained, friendships tested, jobs lost & gained… a strange and wild time for everyone, everywhere. It’s as if we’re all living in our own little wilderness – searching for love, connection, and real life. Bathing in the unknown, taking chances, and challenging each other’s perspectives. This album explores these themes while staying true to Dustin’s classic vibe and writing style.
SINGLE: RELEASED 8/20/21
“Young Love” reflects on the first feelings of love, the first time you feel butterflies for someone, and the imagery that can surround these feelings in your adolescence. Growing up in Central CA, many of those initial feelings of love & lust can bring up scenes… certain smells, certain friends, certain troubles we got ourselves into. The song is smooth with a strong hook and a dynamic build. This will be the 2nd single from Dustin’s upcoming full-length album and will feature a lovely music video.
“SOUL ON FIRE”
SINGLE: RELEASED 7/23/21
“Soul on Fire” is an upbeat, energetic rock/pop song perfect for summer. It’s a passionate (and relatable) song about the highs & lows of love featuring a driving bass line and beat that will keep you dancing through the summer. This is the first single from Dustin’s upcoming album (due early Sept. 2021) and will feature a stunning music video to accompany the release.
SINGLE: RELEASED 3/19/21
Dustin follows up his debut solo album, “Figurine” (Oct 2020) and his popular single, “Tiny Plastic Promise Ring” (Dec 2020) with another super catchy single entitled, “Soldier” – a tune that feels a bit like the Gorillaz & Foster the People hanging at some sort of Neverending Story themed school dance party. With this single, Dustin plans to reach a wider audience with its smooth groove, silky vocals, and passionate yet desperate lyrics of love.
“TINY PLASTIC PROMISE RING”
SINGLE: RELEASED 12/18/20
Dustin followed up the release of “Figurine” with a catchy single entitled, “Tiny Plastic Promise Ring” on December 18, 2020. It’s a song of hope and everlasting love during the crazy times we live in… a love story about a real-life plastic skull ring shared between two lovers.
ALBUM: RELEASED 10/23/20
Dustin released his debut full-length solo album, “Figurine” on October 23, 2020, a beautifully uplifting collection of songs written during quarantine while maximizing time with his family and his music. Dustin wrote, performed, recorded, produced, mixed, and engineered all the tracks on the album.

PINKY AND THE FLOYD
Dustin is a founding member of Montana’s most popular live band, Pinky and the Floyd, as lead singer & guitar player for the past 12 years. Having a similar vocal cadence to David Gilmour, Dustin’s voice lends itself perfectly to the Pink Floyd sound. His most powerful songs from the Pink Floyd catalog include, “Dogs of War,” “Time,” “On The Turning Away,” “Learning to Fly,” “Sheep,” “Dogs,” “Wish You Were Here” and countless other classic tunes. He also plays some searing lead guitar on “Young Lust,” Have a Cigar,” “Keep Talking,” “Coming Back to Life” and many more. Pinky and the Floyd is a live concert experience not to be missed!
From 2011-2016, Dustin performed and recorded with popular MT band, Golden Grenade. GG made two EP’s, both recorded in Nashville using some of the best gear and engineers in the business. Dustin wrote all the music for the rock trio which saw some relative success in and around the MT region. The band was featured on Montana PBS’s popular show, 11th & Grant, as well as a featured 90 second commercial spot on MT’s CW network. You can listen to Golden Grenade everywhere.

Yes! What a stellar tune. And I love the memories conjured in the lyric. I can see your California.

Missing the no problems and no worries! Song sounds great, nicely done. Looking forward to the full release!
I love love the vibe of this song and the message of loging for a simpler time. Groovy but definitely has a tinge of heartbreaking nostalgia in there. Way to go DT!
