Kevin and Dustin Welch 3-31-2017

Father & Son duo are full of soul bringing their different styles into perfect harmony. Kevin Welch has lived starting out under John Hadley with Tree International in 1978. Kevin has put out thirteen albums since that time. Then with a group started Dead Reckoning Records that put out 21 records and decided to tour several countries and pairing with very diverse artists from all over the globe. Still having time to teach his son Dustin and sparking his interest in music. As happens when your father is a renowned songwriter (Kevin Welch) with a Nashville publishing deal and you grow up around some of the most gifted writers and hottest pickers in Music City, U.S.A., Welch was born and raised surrounded by music and displayed a natural affinity for any instrument he could get his hands on practically from the time he was in diapers. Then toured with several acts in 2006 Then back in 2009, after relocating to Austin, Dustin released his first album, titled Whisky Priest, after the main character in Graham Greene’s consummate novel, The Power and the Glory. Another eventually followed in 2013 titled Tijuana Bible. Nowadays, he plays and tours on his own, with his band, and more than ever before, with his father Kevin. The highlight of Dustin’s active schedule is hosting a weekly songwriting and guitar workshop in San Marcos for Armed Forces veterans. It’s inspiring. It’s a beautiful thing. This duo is unstoppable with the combined talent and experimentation of two different eras in music.
