It was almost exactly two years ago when Molly Dean and Barbara Jean were in the Radio Heartland studio playing a few tunes as a relatively new duo, Dusty Heart. Both had successful solo careers for a long time before finding an interest in collaborating and pooling resources and even talking about the early stages of a recording.

Spring forward to this month — Dusty Heart have finished that album, a recording full of new original tunes with appearances from some of the best musicians in the region. The album release show is Friday, March 16, at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis, and it features a full band.

Molly Dean and Barbara Jean brought that band into the studio to talk about the new recording and to play some tunes (and they played for The Local Show, too!).
