Live from Studio A: Dustbowl Revival

Shane German
Dustbowl Revival visits The North 103.3 for Live from Studio A

Formed by Chicago native Z. Lupetin more than a decade ago, this roots ensemble (now based in Venice, California) took its inspiration from artists ranging from Louis Armstrong to Wilco. Lupetin and fellow founding members Josh Heffernan and Ulf Bjorlin have anchored the band through four albums and years of touring with an ever-evolving cast of string and brass players creating soulful Americana, with live shows that have been called “joyous,” “spontaneous,” and “engaging.”

Their most recent releases include 2020’s full-length album Is it You, Is it Me and 2022’s “The Exception,” a single recorded with the Secret Sisters and a digital EP, Set Me Free.

The band joined us for a stripped-down session on Thursday, June 8th 2023 before they performed the same night at the West Theatre in Duluth.
