Local Cut says:
There’s a lot to like about local songwriter Dustin Hamman: he plays under the clever moniker of Run On Sentence (yes, we journalists are biased towards fellow word nerds); he peddles an earthy, catchy fusion of folk, blues, jazz and roots; and in the indie-music sea of bad bum-fluff beards and ironic moustaches, he stands tall with a proud with a truly spectacular crop of bushy facial hair.
Hamman has recorded a new album coming out in August called You, the Darkness, and Me—the follow-up to his promising 2008 debut, Oh When The Wind Comes Down, which featured a charming mix of rambling folk, Latin rhythms and swinging jazz.

Some clips from a recent performance at Mississippi Studios, Portland, OR:
We like to point out when our roster artists are in the national spotlight.
Just Yesterday, Run On Sentence’s “Stonewall” was featured on NPR’s well curated Song of the Day feature.
“On Oh When the Wind Comes Down, Hamman’s visions of folk music are realized with rich imagery and entrancing instrumentation, as he crafts vivid storylines and long strings of compelling narration. He slips and slides from one character to another throughout the record, his versatile voice and musical styles setting the scene.”
Meanwhile the lovely Laura Gibson is found gracing the pages of the fashionable Nylon Magazine in the latest issue:
“The Portland singer/ songwriter has been through a lot of Northern winters, which might be why her tunes are perfect for them – tingled melodies plucked from a nylon guitar, with the lulling pace of a mom singing her kids to sleep.”
As a teaser for the Another Grey Christmas II compilation just released (featuring Laura Gibson, Podington Bear, Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble, Super XX Man [with Mike Johnson] and another song by Run On Sentence [with Pancake Breakfast]–all of HUSH affiliation) Willamette Week saw fit to release Run On Sentence’s delightful alternate today via the Local Cut blog:
The comp is available at Jackpot, Music Millenium, and direct from WW. Proceeds benefit P:ear. Also features tracks by A Weather, Boy Eats Drum Machine, Dolorean, Easter Egg, Future Historians, Gingerbread Patriots, Ohioan and Native Kin, Old Believers (with Eskimo & Sonsâ€™ Danielle Sullivan) and Ralf Youtz (of Ape Shape and Built to Spill).
