Biography

There are two different artists with the same name. See both I. & II. below.

I. Sacramento’s own Dusty Brown have been a staple of the live music scene for over 5 years. With an electrifying live show, this brother and sister electronic duo have captivated audiences to critical acclaim, garnering many awards along the way. Their unique style of drum and bass-infused electronic folk pop blends organic textures with dance floor sensibilities resulting in beautifully crafted melodic soundscapes. With a full length already out, the duo released 2005’s “Dusty Brown EP” before embarking on a US tour with mewithoutYou. They are currently working on a full length album to be released on Gammaphone records.

II. Dusty Brown was born in Mississippi in 1929. Like many of his fellow bluesmen he migrated to Chicago in 1946 looking for a better life for his family. In 1955 he recorded ‘He Don’t Love You’ for the Parrot label. This was a superior example of Chicago blues at its best, which also featured the driving piano of Henry Gray. Dusty has updated this song for our release with all the fire of the original. Dusty embarked on a tour of Europe in 1972. In 1975 he opened a lounge in Chicago Heights, Illinois called Dusty’s Lounge and featured many of his Chicago blues friends, including Sunnyland Slim and Hip Lankchain. Dusty moved back down South in the early ‘90’s and has recently returned to Chicago where he has been reviving his music career appearing at many clubs and festivals. http://www.severnrecords.com/cbhp.html

    Started with the free "This City Is Killing Me" EP via ISO50, went on to buy all their other stuff as well. I think it might be time to send some cash their way!
