Dustan Louque performing at 30A Songwriter Radio music & coffee shop on Tuesday, Apr. 19 from 11am til 12pm.
Dustan Paul Louque, also known as Louque, is an American singer/songwriter and often called Zelig's musical son. He describes his sound as somewhere between Mod & Rocker. During his childhood years growing up in Grande Pointe, Louisiana, he heard an old speech on the radio by Huey P. Long and believed himself to be a king. Just when the crown was getting too heavy and "The Kingfish's" words were fading, tragedy struck his family. He was forever changed and vowed to never take off the crown no matter what.
A native of the Mississippi River Ruhr Valley in St. James Parish Louisiana, Louque loved Fats Domino, Hank Williams, Sr., and Prince. In his formative years he discovered the British sounds of The Smiths, Depeche Mode and New Order at The Gold Mine Saloon in New Orleans. This music had a hold on him and sent him down a path of unlimited possibility. On his first trip to New York while in college, he was overcome with an extreme desire to play the piano. Upon returning to the campus of Mississippi State, Louque begged the staff to let him in a class. It wasn't long before he stole the key to the music building so he can play through the night. He loved to play Chopin Nocturnes and Beethoven but soon discovered guitar and a singing voice.
