Dustin Ransom is an artist’s artist and a musician’s musician. Combining elements of classic r&b and funk, haunting atmospherics, modern pop sensibility, a studied background in jazz & classical music, and a richly dynamic and soulful voice, Ransom creates music that is uniquely sophisticated yet highly accessible. Cutting his teeth as a session/live musician, producer, engineer, mixer, songwriter, and arranger for some of the most talented artists on the live music scence, Ransom has already solidified his reputation in the greater music community as a force to be reckoned with.
Described by many of his peers as a “musical genius”, Ransom continues to only become more formidable – now as an artist. His debut EP was calledThread On Fire. Produced & engineered by Ransom along with producer/engineer Adam Bokesch, Ransom wrote all five songs, played all instrumentation (minus horns on one song, for which he composed the arrangements), sang every vocal, and mixed every track himself. Moving into 2015, Ransom has a new single release called “I Love What You Look Like When You Look Like That” and we have chosen it as this weeks Xtra Fresh. Should we play it on Radio X? You decide!
