We are Dust City Opera, the American Southwest’s fastest-rising indie folk-rock band led by singer/songwriter Paul Hunton.  We’re known for our unique instrumentation and crafty songwriting, juxtaposing dark, bold subject matter over whimsical, light-hearted melodies. Hunton’s songwriting is strikingly visual and spans the spectrum from playful to apocalyptic, balancing his powerful voice over exceptional arrangements of dreamy guitar licks and intensely rich horns.   

We have been compared to the likeness of Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, and Cake with an acoustic, folksy richness that is paired with a unique instrumentation of clarinets, trombone, accordion, the occasional vibraslap, (and YELLING!).  

The release of our 2019 debut album, "Heaven," sparked a wave of media appearances and captured international attention with industry leaders and music bloggers such as Eric Alper (US), Keep Walking Music (Spain), We Love That Sound (Germany), MP3 Hugger (Ireland), Movimento Country (Portugal), and more.
