Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Rust Dust’s song “Sky” from his forthcoming album Twere But It Were So Simple, scheduled to be released on Omad Records on March 10th.
Twere But It Were So Simple was produced, recorded and mixed by Jason Stutts in an old brownstone in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Executive producers of the record were John DeNicola and Jason Stutts. Mastering was courtesy of Bill Skibbe at Third Man Mastering. The album cover is “Portrait of a Young Man #2” by Beatrice F. West.
“Sky” was written by Jason Stutts and John DeNicola. This recording is Jason Stutts on vocals, guitar, banjo, and trombone. The song opens with Stutts’ vocals ringing out crystal clear with the softest clicks for rhythm, followed by whispered banjo plucks, and later gentle, sparse acoustic guitar sounds and later still, bare and raw stringed melodies. Sometimes you just want the simplest experience of a song and its intention, and for that, Rust Dust scratches that itch for you to perfection
It’s the old story of the human struggle to accept and practice compassion. – Jason Stutts
