“Dustin Furlow quickly became a favorite of Acoustic Highway listeners. His songs reflect a deep connection between the performer and the listener- allowing for a true shared experience. Dustin is one of the emerging acoustic acts that is cementing Southeastern Virginia as a major player in Americana Music.”
— Barry Graham - NPR radio host of "Acoustic Highway"
Dustin Furlow is an award-winning singer/songwriter/solo-guitarist whose playing and songwriting style reflect an influence of many genres, but primarily the intimate, earthy sound of today's contemporary-folk artists. With equal respects to songwriters such as Ray LaMontagne and virtuoso acoustic-guitarists like Tommy Emmanuel, Furlow eventually carved out a sound that became easily distinguishable by it's complex guitar work and warm, home-spun lyrics.
In February 2017, he received the Veer Magazine Music Award for "Best Acoustic/Folk Artist" in the Southeastern Virginia area for 2016. That year he also recieved nominations for "Song of the Year" (The Garden), and "Album of the Year" (The Sound That You Call Home).
In 2016, Furlow released the full-length "The Sound That You Call Home", which has enjoyed airplay on NPR radio's "Acoustic Highway", "Hunter at Sunrise", and "Out of the Box" and recieved the title of "Album of the Year" by Barry Graham of NPR's "Acoustic Highway".
A year later Furlow went on to release the EP "Solo", which was a live-in-studio project recorded by Rob Ulsh at Master Sound Studios (Justin Timberlake, Depeche Mode, Gwen Stefani) in Virginia Beach. (2017)
Dustin Furlow has shared the stage with many notable acts such as Vertical Horizon, Daniel Champagne, Matt Thomas, Bj Griffin and the Galaxy Groove, Seth Stainback and Logan Vath.
Playing just over 244 shows in 2017, he is almost always engaged in studio-work, writing, or performing and is currentlyproducing his third album, "Shelter".
“Dustin Furlow is developing a reputation as one of the best acoustic guitarists in Hampton Roads, and his disc "The Sound That You Call Home" does nothing to dissuade that notion.”

“Incredible talent - playing every venue there is from NorVa to the smallest local cafes - the emerging acoustic talent in the area.”
— Veer Magazine 2014
“With the smooth vocal sound of Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson, Dustin’s fingerpicking style of guitar stands out in a world of flat-picked chords. His articulate, jangling guitar playing contrasts beautifully with his honeyed voice. Dustin’s music is folky yet elegant”
— Resound Magazine 2014
“Melodic, acoustic-guitar driven songs with lush textures nodding to the contemporary singer/songwriter genre. ”
