Sawdust & Rust was born after a chance meeting in Greenland in 2015 between Swedish singer-songwriter Patrick Rydman and Faroese singer-songwriter Benjamin Petersen, who goes under the artist name Son of Fortune. Most of the debut album was recorded in Benjamin's studio Bunkarin (the Bunker), in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. Melodic and accessible, this is poetic, catchy songwriting with lots of rootsy, folky elements and a touch of good old Nordic melancholy thrown into the mix, while never forgetting the importance of a memorable chorus. Welcome to a world where creation and decay walk hand in hand... Welcome to Sawdust & Rust!
