Dustin Furlow is an internationally-recognized singer/songwriter/instrumental-guitarist whose body of work occupies its own niche in the contemporary folk music scene. With comparisons to Ray LaMontagne and Gregory Alan Isakov, his voice is earthy and unassuming--conjuring subtle traces of soul and Americana, and supported by a well-informed background of guitar ranging from Celtic to Jazz. After recording 5 albums and playing over 1500 shows since pursuing music full-time in 2013, Furlow has carved out a sound distinguishable by its marriage of complex fingerstyle-guitar and warm, homespun lyrics. From the foot-tapping groove of "Cherokee Lake" to the haunting melodies in "Evergreen," Dustin is an ambassador of dynamic control on stage. In both 2017 and 2023 he received the Veer Magazine Music Awards for "Best Acoustic/Folk Artist" and in 2021 was announced the winner of Scottish luthier Taran Guitars' "Young Player Bursary" award. Today Dustin lives in Asheville, NC where he works at Dream Guitars and continues to share his music with the world via both live performance and online guitar demos supporting the world's most talented guitarmakers.
