Dusty and the LoveNotes
Rock / Country
A blend of folk rock and country inflected original songs prepared with a combination of acoustic and electric instruments.
On the debut CD, What Did You Expect?, Dusty and the LoveNotes take us on a trail ride full of heart-felt stories about love, longing, being true to our beliefs and finally, finding ourselves. In the tradition of folk and country music, Dusty reaches out with her voice and lyrics telling compelling stories and singing them with a raw sincerity. The new release delivers a blend of original and retro folk rock and country-inflected songs with a combination of acoustic and electric instruments tastefully played by Indian Joe (lead guitar and bass), Dusty (rhythm guitar and flute) and Sam Sailors (drums). Their concept is fresh and simple and showcases the clever lyrics and melodies of each tune. From the first track, “Antigua,” written in the cockpit of a friend’s sailboat, to the humorous yet poignant “Blue Satin Thong,” a song about leaving your lover and knowing they will miss you, Dusty paints sonic pictures of real life experiences. “I want to be a positive example for my “sisters” to show they can do anything they want to do at any moment in their life, just like I am.” An honest statement from this modern day minstrel. After all, what did you expect?
