Banner Music and Matt Wynn have just released “Dust,” the inaugural song
in the company’s Banner Believers series. An ode to his blue-collar
upbringing, “Dust” is Wynn’s debut single. The former American Idol Hollywood
finalist wails over a driving acoustic riff on the song. “The longer I
live, the more I love a little bit of dust,” Wynn sings.
Banner Music launched its new Banner Believers production project to
give artists and writers like Wynn a chance to get their music out. The
concept is to release songs from artists who write with Banner Music’s
staff songwriters without all the strings attached of a typical deal.
Banner Music believes in these selected artists and the power of a song,
and hopes this project provides the boost they need to advance their
“The Banner Believer’s Project is something that reflects the heart of
Banner Music,” says Banner Music CEO Camilla Kleindienst. “We believe in
artists, we believe in the power of songs, and we are a place of
‘Makin’ things happen.’”
Matt Wynn co-wrote “Dust” with Banner Music’s Alex Dooley and Daniel
Kleindienst. In addition to the “one-off” recording, Banner will also
provide Wynn with performance opportunities.
