Dustin Kensrue

Since 1998, Dustin Kensrue has been most widely known as the lead singer, lyricist, and guitarist for the well-regarded Irvine, California post-hardcore quartet Thrice. After releasing three albums with the group in 2001 (Identity Crisis), 2002 (The Illusion of Safety), and 2003 (The Artist in the Ambulance), Kensrue began more seriously working on solo acoustic material around 2004. Originally writing under the project name Ursus Veritas, Kensrue eventually dropped the moniker, choosing to work under his own name instead. Tracks first appeared online via MySpace in spring 2005, and Kensrue eventually took time away from work on Thrice's fourth studio effort, Vheissu, to complete the recording of his solo debut with co-producer and Thrice bandmate Teppei Teranishi.

Kensrue hit the road for ten days that summer to play select dates around the United States, where he performed various originals, covers, and the occasional Thrice song. Kensrue was joined on his first solo tour by Lucero's Ben Nichols on East Coast dates and ex-Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan on the West Coast. Kensrue ultimately signed with Equal Vision in fall 2006, and the label issued the folk and country-tinged EP Please Come Home the following January. Keeping with Thrice's history of giving back to charitable organizations, five percent of the album's proceeds were donated to a nonprofit. In 2007, Kensrue released his second solo project, a holiday-themed EP titled This Good Night Is Still Everywhere, which was once again produced by Teranishi and released by Vagrant Records, who were also Thrice's label at the time.

In 2012, Thrice announced they were going on hiatus, and Kensrue became a worship pastor at Mars Hill Church Bellevue; he recorded an album of worship songs, The Water & the Blood, that was released by BEC Recordings in October 2013, but stepped down from his position at Mars Hill Church in the wake of a scandal involving the conduct of church founder Mark Driscoll. (Kensrue was in no way implicated in Driscoll's actions.) In 2015, Kensrue dropped his fourth solo release, Carry the Fire, which dealt with both spiritual and secular themes; that same year, Thrice announced they were reuniting for a series of concerts and festival appearances, with a new album planned for 2016. ~ Corey Apar

Dustin actually does sound a bit like them on this song, but only the intro of this song.

I think some of you must have a head cold, not even close to sounding like Ryan Adams or Coldplay.

His acoustic work is better than Thrice or Ryan Adams. Sorry Adams fans, his voice is way less melodic and his endless cheesy love ballads don't sound Beatles-esqu e and genuine, they sound gimmicky.

Are we sure this isn't Ryan Adams?

Too bad they don't list his holiday album here.

Sounds like his own stuff to me. Coldplay and Ryan Adams, not.

ive got to disagree. Dustin has a wholesome and almost southern baptist gospel feel to his album mixed in with some songs that seem to be influenced by Johnny Cash. Nothing Coldplay has done resembles anything close to Dustin's solo project. Coldplay is overproduced and a bit more complexed. I enjoy coldplay's music but it is not in the same genre as Dustin Kensrue's solo work.

I wouldn't consider coldplay to be a similar artist. anybody else agree?

Hearing Thrice's earlier stuff, that was a bit too hard for me to stick to, but he has a beautiful voice! I knew he would develop that and take advantage of this opportunity and natural gift. Yay! I love it!

Sounds good. Only problem is he is a Ryan Adams wanna be. Why not just listen to the genuine artical?

They need to add his Christmas album "This Good Night is Still Everywhere"; even though it's no longer Christmas season, it's supposedly a great CD.
