Born in Victoria, Texas to a musical family, prolific recording artist and singer-songwriter Dustin Schaefer began playing the guitar as soon as he could hold it and took to performing live as early as high school. Shortly after college, he leaped into the Texas Country scene, joining Micky and the Motorcars in 2011 and appearing as a session guitarist on albums by Parker McCollum, Reckless Kelly, Aaron Einhouse, Drake Hayes, and other artists widely circulated on Texas radio.

He released his debut solo album “Playtime” in the spring of 2016, and shortly after moved to Nashville, where he joined the Black Lillies and began touring with them as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Dustin released his second album “Disconnected” in the fall of 2017, and he continues to tour both with the Black Lillies and as a solo artist. He plans to record his second album late 2019.
