Dustin Hamman resides in The Columbia Gorge, just outside of Lyle, Wa on an idyllic and rough-hewn 40 acre micro-winery. In this wild place he conjured up the songs which comprise Oh When The Wind Comes Down. The following video does a good job of relating the sense of place, backed by birdsong and breeze, that informs both the content of Dustin’s songs and character. Beyond enjoyment of the song, it’s worth watching to the end to catch Dustin’s remarks about glimpsing a rainbow while performing on camera; an endearing deflection which sums up Dustin’s unassuming point of view and gentle demeanor.

Dustin Hamman–also known as Run On Sentence–is taking to the rails to bring you his music. Here Dustin demonstrates his incredibly mobile touring rig: a guitar case with a skateboard truck screwed to the bottom and a petite suitcase with merch and essentials. I don’t think it could get anymore compact or environmentally conscious. Don’t miss him in your neck of the woods! (Tour dates in right sidebar, natch.)

Today marks the release of his wonderful Oh When The Wind Comes Down. Have a listen to the album sampler and treat yourself to this treasure in the HUSHshop:

Meet Run On Sentence

Run On Sentence is the name Dustin Hamman chose to represent his music variously played solo, or in ensemble. The name may be a bit of a misnomer, in that Hamman’s songs are taut in verse and structure. Stylistically his songs may be adventurous (blues, juke joint music, soaring arrangements a lá Neutral Milk Hotel…) but he is never prone to prattle or self-indulgence. His debut Oh When The Wind Comes Down will be released on HUSH this fall. It was produced by Nick Jaina and features many (most) of the players from the Nick Jaina band and other Portland all stars. Just today the Willamette Week published a feature on him in anticipation of his show this Friday at Mississippi Studios (10pm) with Ryan Solee (of The Builders and the Butchers). This is a highly recommended event.
