About Dusty:
When Dusty Pascal tries to write songs, he said, they always fall apart. When he tries to control a song or put himself in it too much, it never works out.

Rather, it's when he lets the song just come out of him naturally that's when the Skaneateles musician said he does his best work.

"The song's usually smarter than me, and I learn from the song more and more down the road. Those are the good ones, but I'm not trying," Pascal said. "I never start with an idea. I just let the song kind of move through me at the kitchen table at 5 o'clock in the morning when I wake up early when it's quiet and the song comes out."

In fact, Pascal said he hasn't written anything in a long time, but he does have a song that he's been working on for awhile. Describing it as spooky in the beginning and a little harsh, he said the words came to him with the lyrics: "Like an old dog to a shotgun, do I lay down or do I run? Do I beat back love enough to march on or do I rumble on an old war drum?"

"It starts, I think, for me just messing around," he said, noting his songs can start out like gibberish, words strung together until he makes sense of them with the rhythm of his guitar. "They just kind of come out."

About Loren:
Loren started playing guitar when he was only four years old, and by the time he was six, played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

?Loren's finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER”, “The Young and The Restless” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar sensation. He has also recorded with Multiple Grammy winner and legendary producer Lloyd Maines.

In 2010, Loren made a guest appearance at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society {CAAS} in Nashville with his pickin' pal from New Zealand, Mark Mazengarb. His solo concerts include favorite songs from seven decades, as well as his originals all featuring exciting guitar work and memorable vocal stylings.
