Dusty Radio began when longtime friends Tage Plantell and Mike Smith – who knew each other from their former respective bands On Second Thought and The Mercury Project – decided to build a new band around the music of Tage’s solo project and add the instrumentation of a four piece rock band with the vibe of an Americana/Alt-country/Swing band. In 2010 Kyle Zender – previously of Seismic Event – joined the band as the bass player and in 2011 Tad Lusk previously of the Blake Marvin Band, joined Dusty Radio on lead guitar.
Dusty Radio’s song Don’t Worry About Me has been heard on Boulder based KBCO radio station and the music video has aired on HDNet’s Music Discovery program. Currently the four-piece is currently recording their first album together and expects a release date in Fall of 2012.
