Artist of the Month: Dustin Bird

Stirling, ON, native Dustin Bird has built his road into the Canadian country music scene with hard work, great appearances, and solid songs.

We first saw Dustin at the Boots & Hearts festival in 2018, when he earned his spot as a finalist in the Emerging Artist Showcase competition. It was a fantastic introduction to the young artist and one that put him on a lot of fans’ radars moving forward.

Since then, Dustin Bird has released four singles: She Likes My Guitar, Wake Up, People, and his most recent release, Unscripted. Wake Up leads the way for Bird, piling up more than 125,000 Spotify streams. It’s a breakout achievement for the emerging artist and should be acknowledged and celebrated.

The four songs have amassed nearly 200,000 Spotify streams, and Unscripted is barely out of the gate. Released in mid-January 2020, the song is sweet and lovey. It allows Dustin to show off his voice on a song that is meant to connect with and embrace a quintessential country music story. Dustin also got to work with a great team on the song, with CCMA and Juno winner Jeff Dalziel producing and co-writing with Tyler Shaw and Dwave Thomson. The result is a song that we expect country music fans to hook into, and Unscripted should spark a lot of slow dances in the crowd at live shows.

In 2020, Dustin Bird has already played venues like Big Texas, Signal Brewery and In The Country at The Moonshine. In the coming weeks, he’ll head to Oshawa to play The Corral, and we expect Dustin will be adding more live dates to his calendar as we get into the warmer weather and festival season.

With a strong voice, a love for and commitment to making music, and talent that makes us want to hear more, Dustin Bird is in a good spot. We look forward to hearing new music, seeing more live shows, and watching as Bird spreads his wings and forges ahead in the country music industry.
