The Dust Collectors are proof that sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of you all along. After years of playing separately in different bands, the four-piece evolved organically, quickly moving from garage jams to song-writing in a matter of weeks. By Winter 2018, they were recording their first Demos EP and playing shows around the local Calgary circuit.
The group approach songwriting as a collaborative effort. With each member coming from different places of influence, the result is a blend of country, folk and rock that is both bitter and sweet to the listener's ears, bringing to mind classic collectives like The Band and CSNY. What truly sets this band apart is that each member contributes vocally; sharing lead-singer responsibilities and seamless four-part harmonies have become the signature of their ever-increasing setlist of original songs.
The Dust Collectors have completed work on their first album, recording with Pat Palardy at Public Lunch Studios in Calgary. The album will be released in the Spring of 2023.
