Of their debut album "Searchin' For A River" here is what the people have to say:
"This group of young talented musicians has hit a homerun ,first time out.
Manitoba Blues News Magazine
"As leader of The Dusty Roads Band, Dustin Harder is working hard to carve out a unique niche for himself in a glutted musical landscape and his debut album Searchin' for a River finds him perfectly situated to make a big impact on that scene. What keeps him suspended above the more commonplace 12-bar dudes is his ability to create a stylish guitar tone that evokes the masterful attitude of cats like former Fleetwood Mac-er Peter Green, and that alone is a rarity.
Jeff Monk, Winnipeg Free Press
"Versatility is like personality: It goes a long way. It goes even farther when you have both, like this eclectic outfit led by singer/songwriter-guitarist Dustin Harder.
Darryl Sterdan,Winnipeg Sun
Of their live performance:
"Wow! I was blown away!
Lynn Munilla, Festival du Voyageur.
"The passion and intensity that Dustin Harder pulls through his guitar is immediately apparent.
Matt DuBoff Artistic Director Brandon Folk Music and Arts Festival.
