Dusty Limits: Grin

A couple of weeks ago, I had the enormous privilege of attending the launch of Dusty Limits's new album called GRIN. Obviously, I am listening to it as I write this.... 

The evening got off to the best possible start - a Bleecker Street burger and their famous Angry Fries on the South Bank with THAT view. I will always be grateful to Rosie The Londoner for that recommendation. 







I've written about Dusty before - I loved him so much that I promised to blog about him again so here it is....

His launch was part of the London Wonderground festival, which is a feast of entertainment and includes cabaret and circus amongst other great things....

I can't decide which is my most favourite song - they are all a work of genius. I particularly like "Reunion", which is about a large and eccentric family reunion and "Is it too late?", which starts with "Dear Life, I've reconsidered...."

He teamed up with the mighty Michael Roulston who helped him co-write the album. They cleverly crowd-funded via Kickstarter and I am so glad their campaign was successfully funded because this man is a genius and it was about time the world could hear his work. 

I didn't get a good photo of him "in action", which is annoying but might not have been allowed ! His charisma and energy were so entertaining... He was swigging from a bottle of herbal Corvonia (the non medicated variety) but that didn't stop his booming voice from sounding nothing but impressive and I didn't want the evening to end... 

On the Wonderground website, it says "Leave your real life at the door..." and I felt I did just that...

You can buy Dusty's album here and listen to clips !
