Combining elements of r&b & funk, haunting atmospherics, timeless pop, rock, jazz, & folk sensibilities, & a rich, soulful voice, Dustin Ransom blurs experiences of love, loss, fear, & hope into his music. Built on deep grooves, impeccable musicianship, & honest, thought-provoking
lyrics, his songs reveal themselves more & more with each listen.
Dustin Ransom was born a musical whiz kid in small-town Indiana. Classically trained on piano, drums, & percussion & self-taught on guitar & bass, Dustin immersed himself in every musical genre possible from a young age. In 2005, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee & became
a first-call musician & producer for artists including Ryan Bingham, Jars Of Clay, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, Ben Rector, Jon McLaughlin, Gabe Dixon, Emily West, K.S. Rhoads, Shelly Fairchild, Erin McCarley, Butterfly Boucher, Jeremy Lister, Andrew Belle, Andy Davis, Steve
Moakler, & many more. 

Dustin self-produced and engineered his 2015 debut EP, Thread On Fire, along with producer-engineer Adam Bokesch, as well as playing 99% of the instrumentation, singing every vocal, & mixing every track. No vocal correction software was used on Thread On Fire, as is the case on
all of his recordings. In 2016, Dustin created JIGSAW, an interactive experience where fans submitted musical parameters (time signature, key signature, tempo, & instrumentation) in the form of “Jigsaws”. One of these submissions would be randomly chosen, & Dustin would write a song
based around it. This resulted in some of his most challenging music to date, including the funk workout “Talk About You”, the autumnal “Black Letters (What You’ll Find)” & the jazz-psychedelia of “Liberation”.
In 2017, Dustin released his first LP, Phases, a masterful showcase of his musical DNA, and spent the fall of 2017 touring in support of Phases, opening for pop singer-songwriter Matt Wertz across the United States. He is currently touring Phases across the U.S., & is also writing for his next album, due in 2018.
