About the Rusty Pieces

The Rusty Pieces are a two piece strum, stomp, shake, slap and bang duet from Memphis, TN.  Two long time singer songwriters converged, and out sprang a crop of soulful, earthy, catchy ear candy.  Stomp box, cajon, washboard, shakers, and foot percussion join in with guitar and rich vocal harmonies to create a surprisingly huge sound.   Their goal is to create music that defies genre and gets stuck in your head after the first listen. The Rusty Pieces music has been called bluesy pop, soulful pop, indie-pop, front porch pop, pop rock, old timey, new fangled, high energy, lo-fi, and the list goes on. I just call it damn good music, and I think you'll agree.

Jessi Dalton: locked herself in a room and learned "Blackbird" on the guitar when she was ten years old. She's released 5 albums with 4 different bands proving herself an amazing songwriter each time out.  She has the kind of presence that fills not only the stage but the entire room and, as if that weren't enough, Dalton has recently been noted as having "the most sparkle per square inch" of anyone you'll likely meet.

Weston Sherman: had spent the last 20 years doing exactly what his 5th grade teacher Mrs. White predicted: not living up to his full potential. A soulful performer with a mind boggling catalog of unpublished material, Sherman arrived in Memphis last year as a slab of fresh musical meat... a true diamond in the rough.  His word play, rhyme schemes, melodies and passionate delivery will have you saying "Where the hell has this guy been hiding out?"  

              P.S. These two are like totally in love with each other. Great onstage chemistry!
