Dusty Limits and I have just released “Life & I” our second studio album of our songs, which is available here.
We were nominated for a Melbourne Green Room Award for Original Songwriting.
Here are two sample tracks:
It is a hugely rich and satisfying journey, with more layers and nuance revealed in each subsequent listening” Cabaret Scenes
“This new album is an eclectic collection of songs filled with wit, sadness and wine-fuelled moments of hope and joy.” britishtheatre.com
Roulston’s music has a timeless quality, edging toward Coward or Porter but unmistakably contemporary… there’s more than a whiff of the Weimar to Life & I but it’s tempered with warmth and geared to raise a smile as much as assist you in drowning your sorrows.” Paul Vale, The Stage
Our first album “Grin” is available here.
Roulston grasps the breadth and depth of the eloquent text, intelligent subtext, and biting social commentary of Limits’s lyrics, his music serving as creative amplification, bringing the energy of a live performance into the studio recording with layered textures of sound” – Cabaret Scenes
“The band shuffle and simmer quietly through solos and instrumental phrases delicate and troubled in mood. Grin is an album that makes for great company” – Unrecorded
“If there is a message in this album, it is one of resilience and survival… With intelligence, wit and not a little showmanship they manage to shine a light into the darker corridors of the soul” – Musical Theatre Review
We were nominated for the TO&ST Award by for our Edinburgh Festival show “Postmortem”. Because of this we played the Soho Theatre for a week. It also inspired us to write our new show “Psycho” for Edfringe 2013. This was our first show of all original material.
A fabulously slick and confident performance… the gloriously uncensored songs are well written and very funny. Unabashedly eloquent and at times viscerally personal” – Three Weeks ★★★★ on Psycho.
“The meat, of course, is a hugely varied and accomplished collection of brand new songs written with Michael Roulston, on subjects from serial killers to ennui to closet cases, in styles ranging from Lieder to tango to electronica.” ★★★★★ TimeOut on Psycho.
“One of the foremost practitioners of the art of cabaret… If only the show was twice as long… Do. Not. Miss. This.” – ★★★★ The Scotsman on Postmortem.
