Originating from the midwest, Dustin McKamie is an American singer/songwriter who has made a living as an artist in the Los Angeles area. Most notably, Dustin's visual effects artistry can be seen on hit TV shows like HBO’s Game of Thrones, Westworld, and AMC’s The Walking Dead (to name a few). When he’s not busy making dragons fly and killing zombies, he is writing and recording music.
After spearheading different bands, playing over 100 live shows, and touring the country, Dustin is no stranger to the music scene. Just recently he was acknowledged as a winning finalist for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. In 2011 he was a winning finalist for a contest put on through Universal Pictures to be placed on the Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World blu-ray. His song was hand-picked by director Edgar Wright and voted to win by the public.
Dustin released his first single, "CREATURE!" on Oct. 30th 2020 which has already received rave reviews with over 10,000 streams on Spotify and growing. Dustin's songs have emotionally charged lyrics that cut through an atmosphere of 80's inspired electronic beats and synth-wavy sounds. Bedroom Indie rock pop at it's finest with influences of The Postal Service, Bleachers, and The Smiths.
