Looking to the South
Label profile and details of our new titles
On Tuesday, The Bitter Southerner published an article about Dust-to-Digital written by editor-in-chief, Chuck Reece. Chuck told the story of our company’s origin and detailed several of our most current projects. He interviewed Maxine Payne (Making Pictures), Sarah Bryan (Lead Kindly Light), Nathan Salsburg (Parchman Farm) and Dr. Bill Ferris from the University of North Carolina.

As for the new releases, we are just days away from receiving Lead Kindly Light and Parchman Farm: Photographs and Field Recordings, 1947-1959. Thank you for all the pre-orders — we are happy to report they will ship next week!
Our North American distributor, Forced Exposure, received their shipment. We are excited that the items have begun making their way into record stores. FE commissioned Damon Krukowski to review the Parchman Farm set for their website — click here to read his review.
“These photographs cross many lines. They depict people both black and white, in settings rural and urban. To browse them is to see the South in cinema verite, exactly as it was, for better and worse, 75 to 100 years ago.” — Chuck Reece on Lead Kindly Light. Be sure to check out The Bitter Southerner article to hear a Georgia Yellow Hammers recording from this two-disc, photograph book.
Last but not least, Dust-to-Digital recording artist Lonnie Holley is preparing to embark on a North American tour in support of Daniel Lanois. Here’s a schedule for the upcoming tour, which starts Sunday November 9 in Toronto.
