Dust is a collection of late-night, warm and wistful recordings, lyrically revealing Dean's reflective observations about people and situations in everyday life. The songs were written with nothing but an acoustic guitar and pen and paper, revealing an intimate honesty not unlike Nick Drake or Duncan Sheik. But the sounds pull you into a world of their own. Ethereal and delicate electric guitars, lush harmonies, toy keyboards, and glockenspiel surround Dean's hushed voice and acoustic guitar. From the sparse and personal title track 'Dust' to the ghostly Lanois-esque ambience of 'Letters', Dean creates sonic worlds to explore - world's more revealed in each repeated listen. Although Dean played most of the notes himself, he also enlisted some trusted friends to add their own subtle textures to the mix, adding drums, upright bass, lap steel, guitar, piano, organ, and banjo. The performances of each instrument add to the gentle, understated atmosphere of the recording, never drawing attention to themselves. Featuring: Dean Drouillard - vocals, guitars, bass, keyboard, glockenspiel, percussion loops Adam Warner - drums, percussion Mike Lerner - piano, organ Brian MacMillan - lap steel Wes Neal - upright bass Erik Arnesen - banjo.
