Dutch Pink is intelligent music for people who have been spoon fed bullshit long enough – an original band that makes smart music with a singer-songwriter drive to it. Bluesy, rocking, balladeers who in a new millennium have looked to the world and seen with open eyes corruption, greed, war and fat cat profiteering challenge the old promise.
The band is not young and angry, but wise and resolute. Truthful to a razor sharp point, sometimes road weary, always poignant and hopeful. Raw is wrong. Stoked coals in a fire is more like it.
The current Dutch Pink lineup includes Dustin Charles Leslie on guitar/piano/organ/vocals, Clyde Mashinter on bass guitar, Serene Arena on vocals, Chris McDonald on lead guitar, and Kevin Tuczek on drums and percussion.
Dutch Pink debuted its sixth release in November 2013, an LP entitled “Lady Luck Motel Suite.” The album is available at online outlets like iTunes and CD Baby, as well as on vinyl through New Fortune Records.
The band’s sound has been described as “a twisted-indie fed take on American roots music.” (Metro Times) and “equally balladeers of the bleak, blunt and gothic as they are weavers of hypnotic minor-key-lingering blues.” (Real Detroit Weekly)
