Dustin is a worship leader and broadcaster on Daystar. Kansas-based, he has had previous independent releases 'Healing Waters', 'Open The Floodgates', 'Everything Inside Me' and 'You Are the Fire'. 'Rushing Waters' is the re-release of the latter album. From the opening track with its Edge-style guitar, you know this going to be a strong album. "Let Justice Roll" has great keyboard and guitar playing, with a call for the justice of God to be evident in today's world. The atmosphere is also captured well; you can hear the congregation, often something missing on live, modern worship albums. What makes the album a little different from similar releases is the emotional depth in a number of tracks such as the energetic "Never Ending Flood" and the gentle, reflective tracks such as the piano-based songs "The One That Really Matters" and "Rain Down On Us". Dustin demonstrates here his years of worship experience, making this a powerful release.

Product Description
Dustin Smith has been positioned as a leader of today's worship revolution. Along with travelling, songwriting, & leading worship, Dustin's influence is showing up on the international scene as an authority in worship, reaching many nations: Japan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, England, Canada and more, as thousands are experiencing the presence of God through his music.

Growing up as a pastor's son, Dustin always felt the call to ministry. But after marrying his wife Jeanna in 1997 and heading into a full time worship position, Dustin started becoming more and more aware of the deadness of the system he was now helping lead. After weighing the importance of God's presence in their lives, Dustin and Jeanna picked up and quit everything to move to Kansas City to become part of the internationally known World Revival Church.

This new live recording was captured at Dustin's church in Kansas City and this project was produced by Michael Farren (Pocket Full of Rocks) and Kyle Lee (Michael W. Smith). Rushing Waters features some of the biggest names in worship music today: Stu G (delirious) on electric guitar, Carl Albrecht (Paul Baloche) on drums, Jacob Lowery (Michael W. Smith) on bass, Joshua Brown (King and Country) on keys and Jennifer Balser on vocals. With six albums under his belt in collaboration with his church, Rushing Waters is Dustin's first live album as a solo worship artist.
