Welcome to "SOUL DUST". Soul Dust are a four piece rock band with diverse musical influences and backgrounds. They have the common belief that music should be played from the depths of your soul and that sticking to any one style is depriving you of a wealth of musical knowledge, experience and enjoyment. They are of the opinion that music is therapy for the soul. They blend different genres and are heavily influenced by the 70's and 90's music eras. They are without a doubt a guitar rock band, blending rock, blues, grunge, jazz, psychedelic and southern styles to create music that projects who they are. The main driving forces in Soul Dust are the dual attack on your senses from guitarist Andre (Dre) Bourget's raw, catchy riffs and intense lyrics, coupled with singer Myk Shaflik's passionate and emotional vocal performances, come together to light up every track and pull you into the song's mood and lyrics. Hilton Hartwell and Ron Twemlow are the powerhouse rhythm section that drive the music with authority and grace. The dynamics and massive energy these four rock veterans deliver will assail you and leave you wanting more.

Whatever happened to bands like Led Zeppelin that used to explore all types of musical genres? Why do bands today seem to gravitate towards "formulas" and status quos?
Because of $$$$, that's why. Because formulas are perfect for this fast-paced, ever-changing world of ours where no one has much time to relax.
Formulas are quickly digested and they taste good. They also often have no nutritional value for the soul or the mind. They are designed to sell quickly and make $$$$...lots of $$$$! It's comparable to the fast-food industry in many ways when you stop to look at it for what it is.
But it's time to let the many musical influences of this world flow back into modern rock music. It's time to enrich our minds and expand our rock and roll horizons. It's time to brush off the dust that's collected on good ol' rock and roll and put the soul back into the music!
'Nuff said. Enjoy!
