Run On Sentence is an ever-evolving musical project fronted by Dustin Hamman.
His lyrics are really about something. It’s rare anymore to hear a song
that also functions as a credo, a statement of what the singer believes as
opposed to what words merely fit the syllables and the rhyme scheme.
Run On Sentence songs are petrogylphs, carved out after Dustin spent a lot of time on
windswept bluffs just listening and watching. He shapeshifts like the old
shamans, not physically changing his form, but wrapping his mind around
the true empathy of understanding what it’s like to be something else. The
songs are always pure statements, things he has seen on quiet nights alone,
when the trees start to glow with the energy of life. They are songs that he
can get up and sing honestly every night, squeezing out every note with
every drop of breath left in his diaphragm, because the songs are true. They
are like a tent revival, where the energy they whip up starts to feed back and
sustain itself. That is a remarkable achievement. As he sings towards the
end of the upcoming album, FEELINGS, “I just want to feel, God DAMN that’s what feelings are for.”
