Dusty Awe (DK)
Dusty Awe is a singer/songwriter from Denmark playing emotional and intelligent acoustic punk.
Dusty Awe's frontman, Michael Sulbæk Larsen, performs wearing his heart on his sleeve and poring it out onto naive sugarcoated melodies. Being tough also means being tender and Dusty Awe attempts to balance.
Michael has been performing live and actively touring with Dusty Awe since a debut-concert in 2006 warming up for Ghost Mice.
Dusty Awe has toured thousands of kilometers and playing hundreds of shows, most of them solo.
Not many recordings of Dusty Awe songs have been made in spite of a rather long professional career - and the focus has been performing live.
