Rock Is Red #4 - Dustin Harder of The Dusty Roads Band

Blues music and the Native experience are so intertwined that it was only a matter of time before ROCK IS RED turned our attention to a Native blues troubadour. Sure DUSTIN HARDER and his band THE DUSTY ROADS BAND have a musical palate that is wide and expansive but all of it can be traced back to the blues. Listeners first got a taste of the band's blues-based approach on the 2009 album SEARCHIN FOR A RIVER.  In the time since that album's release DUSTIN and the band has released a single here and a single there. Fans of the band's dexterity and versatility can now breathe a sigh of relief because HARDER is working on some songs for a upcoming album and the Metis troubadour promises that the sound and the songwriting will be cranked up a notch.  Given the man's track record thus far we can only assume that the music will most definitely rock - even if it is the blues that we're talking about.
