Dustin Kensrue Booking Agency Profile

Book Dustin Kensrue for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Since the formation of Thrice in 1998, Dustin Kensrue was most notably known as the lead singer, lyricist, and guitarist for the well-regarded Irvine, California post-hardcore quartet. He had toured in past years on his own under the moniker Ursus Veritas, but decided to drop the name in favor of simplicity. The name was a play-on-words of its Latin components: Ursus meaning bear, and Veritas meaning truth. Kensrue took some brief time away from work on Thrice's fifth studio effort to finish up the recording of his debut record with co-producer and Thrice bandmate Teppei Teranishi. He hit the road for ten days that summer to play select dates around the United States. Playing various originals, covers, and the occasional Thrice song, he was joined on his first solo tour by Lucero's Ben Nichols on East Coast dates and ex-Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan on the West Coast. Kensrue ultimately signed with Equal Vision, and the label issued the folk- and country-tinged Please Come Home. Keeping with Thrice's history of giving back to charitable organizations, five percent of the album's proceeds were donated to a non-profit. Often incorporating lyrics drawn from the Bible, Kensrue followed up with The Water & the Blood, which made the Billboard 200 and three other charters, peaking at No. 4 on the Christian Albums chart. Kensrue's next record, Carry the Fire was released to critical acclaim, receiving five stars from Christian Review Magazine, with Leah St. John describing it as truly... a superb release, both musically and lyrically." Most recently, Kensrue released his first live album, Thoughts That Float on a Different Blood, which charted on three Billboard magazine charts..
