Get Bryan McPherson’s new live EP Live at The Milestone for 1 Dollar!
Last summer Bryan McPherson played a string of sweaty shows opening up for Tim Barry and Cory Branan, with the last night of the tour at The Milestone in Charlotte.

February 15, 2014: Sugar Brown is a multi-instrumentalist bluesman born and raised in
Bowling Green, Kentucky who is joined by producer and harmonica master
Bharath Rajakumar for his first full-length release. Featuring a true
old school style of blues, with Chicago, Texas and Delta influences,
Sugar Brown’s Sad Day succeeds with simplicity, truthfulness and genuine
soul. Recorded live into a mono tape recorder, the 15 songs deliver a
vintage vibe that reminds us that technical progress is not always
artistic progress. If you’ve been yearning for authenticity and honesty

Kopf Percussion has a reputation for making some of the best-sounding
and most well-made Cajones and percussion accessories in the world, and
RUST Magazine is very pleased to announce that we will be teaming up
with them on promotions and productions starting immediately. Over the
past couple of years, the Cajon has become the must-have instrument in
the studio and on the road. For us it will also be a set decoration,
prop and piece of furniture for our video shoots and events. Kopf makes
each instrument by hand, one at a time, the old fashioned way. Each
Cajon is individually tuned before it goes to it’s ‘forever home’ and we
will be featuring these great, fun products in our upcoming shoots.

Give It Back
February 1, 2014
If you haven’t heard of Hamilton Loomis yet, this is the minute to find out because Give It Back is a great album from an amazing musician.
On January 28th we went into the downtown area of Atlanta to do a photo shoot with Jeff Syracuse who works with BMI in Nashville and was visiting the city. The whole idea was to get pictures in the snow - but little did either of us know that the snow would cripple the city and trap us. It took Jeff 11 hours to get back to Marietta and it took RUST two days to get back to our home. But the culture of southern hospitality turned this nightmare into a million stories of people helping people. This photo was taken just around Noon and you can see the traffic flowing freely behind Jeff. Half an hour later it was gridlock with freezing temperatures and a city in emergency mode.
Donna Hopkins Photo Shoot and Acoustic Video of Sendin' Love
RUST Magazine wants to thank the very talented Donna Hopkins for taking time to pose for us in the freezing cold and wind on January 21st. Donna has a new song coming out to help raise money for friends and family which she shared with us. Thank you Donna!
