Easthampton, MA-based artist Stephen Pierce, best known for making music in bands including Kindling and Ampere, has shared a new song under the moniker Gold Dust. Listen to ‘Run Into Clouds’ below.
The new track is taken from Gold Dust’s upcoming self-titled debut album, which is due out on October 15 and also includes the previously released single ‘Oh Well’. “I grew up learning to play guitar on Johnny Ramone and Kevin Shields, I love that kind of playing but it’s a completely different skill set than what’s being used in a lot of folk music,” Pierce explained in a statement. “I was really impressed by acoustic guitar playing but I didn’t really know how to do it — it was like a different language. So I started trying to unlearn and relearn guitar.”
