Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My name is Dustin Price from the United States, and I was born on the day of our Lord December 9, 1993. My family is full of musicians on my mother’s side, so it makes sense that I would fall in line.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

My music career is short-lived. This is the first release of mine that I truly believe in. I wrote a few unrequited love songs in high school, but it’s better for all of us that I don’t delve into that. I hid behind misnomers during that time, and so I decided to finally own up to what I’ve written by simply using my name. I’ve played and sang for about 6 years, but I wasn’t any good until a few months ago. I consider myself more of a singer and lyricist than a guitarist, and I’m proud of how it all turned out.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

It’s all very nuanced, but I think I’ve landed in the indie folk/singer-songwriter realm.

The concept is the excavation of my experiences and how they’ve shaped me. I write to try and better understand the human condition. I thought that I had a grasp on what it meant, but then everything kind of fell apart right in front of me, and this song was my initial response.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I’m a local artist based in Savannah, GA. This is my first attempt, so all positive thus far.

.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

My current live band is made up of Dylan Puckett, Jake Warren, Corbin Carpenter, and Grayson Carpenter, but the EP was produced by Blake Tallent, who is one of my closest friends. I’ve played in his band, God Bless Relative, for a while now, and when he mentioned me doing a record I opted to have him over the project immediately. He knew exactly what I was aiming to do and achieved it superbly. We recorded everything in his bedroom over the course of two weekend sessions. Blake also played the majority of what you hear instrumentally, so to have someone like that running the show is a major plus. As for the recording band, Luke Seager played most of the drums for the project, with the exception of this song, which features Brandon Thomas. Ben Cramer also had a hand with vocals and programming.

.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

My experience is minimal, being that this is my first release, but I feel that it’s a solid first effort.

The goal is to play as much as possible and continue to put out material that I think is worthwhile.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

The communication aspect of music is what drew me in. The thought that other forms of media can suggest a certain feeling, but music actually demands it. Knowing that other folks have had similar experiences to mine keeps me trying to voice those particular thoughts and feelings.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Sadly, I don’t write the hits, so I don’t have much to offer here.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

The fact that anyone at all has listened and enjoyed what I’ve made is humbling. Thanks for listening.

It’s a bit more demanding content-wise than your typical record. It’s about the things we keep under wraps and never feel that we can talk about openly. I want it to help give you confidence in those areas to speak about it with those close to you, to make it less of a taboo. Your friends and family want the best for you, and once you understand that I think that you’ll see a change. Engage with it and maybe start some kind of excavation yourself, work the falsities out. Choosing to do that was the best decision that I’ve ever made.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll. This is both advice to others and a reminder to myself.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

No awards or recognition here, but I don’t need it.

.

.

.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.

EarToTheGround, with a few others in the process.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I only write in solitude. Everything that you hear is the first and final draft. It’s prolonged the process, but I think that it’s worth it. Recording is always in a low-pressure environment to enable everyone to have a good time.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

Ryan Adams is my main influence. What he has done for the craft, writers and listeners alike, is remarkable. I spend the majority of my time listening to the legends though, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Dylan, Springsteen, etc.

.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

I’m not one for collaboration, but I’d love to write with anyone listed above.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

The days all kind of run together. I don’t have many checkpoints, if you will. My happiest days include gyros and horror films, while my saddest contain wine and romantic comedies.
