Dustin Prinz on his influences and inspiration. “I have worked very hard to develop a unique musical style and I am happy to admit that I have drawn inspiration from many of my favorite musicians: Michael Einziger of Incubus, Bon Iver, Travis Meeks of Days Of The New, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Tommy Emmanuel, Rodrigo y Gabriella and John Gomm. My entire reason for being is to encourage others to find their passion and take a chance. There really isn’t anything more gratifying than waking up to work on something you love. When I get a message from a fan, describing how one of my songs has inspired them to pick up the guitar – I am reminded why I do this”.
