    Hey guys, my band "Chico Dusty" just recorded our first ep, its just three songs... We have more stuff but recording is expensive so we thought it would be a good start.

    Let me know what you think!


    Here's our facebook page if you'd be so kind to help us by liking us it would mean a lot! Thanks!


    Thanks guys and I really hope you like it!

    Hey man, I just listened to your songs. Cool stuff. I like your "Chico" vibe!
    I really like the bluesy feel of Stepping Stone. Nice emotive guitar 'n bass interplay like a good blues should. Nice bass tone. Nice up-tempo groove on Shakin' and Stopping the Buck. Solid songs you guys have. Congrats!

    Liked and listened. Digging the music, especially "stepping stone". what did you use in the studio for your bass tone? It is really well balanced.

    Thanks and thanks!

    Tone was very simple actually... I was playing a ric 4003 with year old half rounds into a sandsamp bass driver, I believe the settings were pretty flat.

    I thought Stepping Stone was great. Everything was mixed cleanly, you can hear each instrument perfectly.

    The basslines are pretty simple but I feel like they work alright for the songs.
