With a voice that’s one part whiskey and two parts honey, Blood & Dust blurs the lines between folk, blues, and soul. Born the son of a farmer and hailing from Southern Oklahoma, this ex-Baptist preacher takes every raw emotion you know and channels it into the strings of his guitar. Coming onto the Bay Area Music Scene in early 2012, Blood & Dust is most recognizable for gritty melodies and intensely emotive guitar playing; it’s like having the barrel of a six shooter pointed straight at your chest. Listen at your own risk.
Here’s what people are saying about Blood & Dust:
“Blood & Dust loves to be slow and steady; great for contemplation, you could have a an emotional reckoning about your regrets in life as he slows the pace down to one fit for a Mississippi wrap around porch. However, he can also shred that guitar with some down country, high energy twang, and a deep bluesy feel that says “eat your heart out ladies…” – Awaken Cafe
“Rustic and rugged, but delicate and sweet like a can of peaches eaten by the campfire. Prepare for your heart to be stolen, and be forewarned; it will feel like petty theft. Blood and Dust plucks the six strings of his guitar like the chambers of a six shooter aimed straight at your chest.” – Oaktown Indie Mayhem
