DustyMarcus recently dropped “Time and Again” for worldwide distribution on Blast FM. This rising independent artist captures hearts with this track. This hit is distributed by Bentley Records and is the first single release off the new album titled “A Long Time Ago”.
Dustin was born in Cape Town, South Africa and immigrated to Canada
as a young child in 1981. Dustin’s grandfather started him with three chords: A, G and C. It impassioned Dustin.
Dustin started writing short stories in public school which progressed to poetry and composing music. He started playing guitar with a friend in grade nine. Many years later, he reunited with that friend and formed the band “The Survivorz“.
Years later Dustin formed a new band called “Decay and the Retribution“. The band performed a number of shows in London and Southwestern Ontario. After a couple of years, the genre of the band’s music changed. They went from a rock and folk band to a folk and blues band. Following the disbanding of Decay and the Retribution Dustin went on to use the stage name DustyMarcus..
DustyMarcus is presently playing alongside with his son on keyboards. He is also joined in the studio by good friend Garnet Bruce. Covid presented a lot of challenges over the past 18 months. From live shows being cancelled to not having the opportunity to record with others. Despite these trying times, DustyMarcus was able to record and distribute the album, A Long Time Ago.
Dustin has started planning for the future. He will be part of the RiseUp TV Tour in October 2021. RiseUp TV is a bold new Broadcast & Media Production Company that has created a unique TV show filmed on the road with touring musicians. RiseUp TV is streaming on Roku – be sure to check it out.
When asked what do you want your music to accomplish? Dusty replies easily “I want my music to get my listeners to think and feel something, whether it be love, compassion, togetherness, it is then that he has accomplished something good”. Proof that this is already happening; he recently received an email form a fan who stated because of his music, she has picked up the guitar again and has started playing. When you receive numerous emails with the same theme, this is your confirmation that DustyMarcus is touching his fans with his music; Time and Again.
