petco Listen. I have been around a long time and there are sounds that are particularly resonant. One of those sounds is out there in the soundtrack realm. I won't name names but this release reminds me of something very special. R.C. I cannot get enough of this sound and that evokes one of Steve's very first. Thank you, Steve. Thank you, Ron. Please, give me more.

What Drives A Soul To Go West?

Dust to Dust is the creation of restless, ever-pioneering composer Steve Roach and native-Tucsonian Roger King, a seasoned studio guitarist, sound engineer and patent medicine man. Their music grew out of a series of easy-going get-togethers to “see what the hell might happen.” Roach and King soon discovered that growing up in the desert had mutually steeped them in the omnipresent influence of the Wild West in all its glory. Dust to Dust is western music in the truest sense. It is a bold step in a new direction: where sounds paint pictures with a range of colors drawn from the land, where stories are told with the instruments of old and new pioneers. Guitars, harmonicas and washboard rhythms find their place next to a wagon full of Synths
The music feels like torn leather chaps that have been out on the virtual-trail for a while, making Dust to Dust one of Roach’s most melodic, yet gritty albums to date . . . It sounds like the musicians have strapped on six-shooters in a Sergio Leone spaghetti western.” (John Diliberto, ECHOES RADIO)
