Dr. Dog Drummer Juston Stens Goes Solo

Juston Stens, Dr. Dog's drummer since 2004, recently left the group to pursue his own musical projects, the first of which is his solo debut. According to Stens' Myspace where he goes by the moniker Total Poser, the album should be out sometime this spring. All three of the songs Stens currently has streaming sound fantastic, especially his covers of Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" and Floating Action's "Don't Stop Lovin' Me Now," which Dr. Dog previously released as a B-Side with Stens singing and playing all instrumentals. Clearly, this is a project to look out for.

  2. well done sir.

  3. New Jersey! Sounds good to me. We need another Bruce Springsteen! Bon Jovi left a bad taste in my mouth.

  4. Fun facts:

    Juston Stens played all the instruments and vocals as " Dr.Dog " for the split 7" with Floating action. Floating action covered Dr.Dog's " the Breeze "
    Juston Stens recently tracked some of his upcoming debut album at the Floating Action Studio in NC. The Tom Petty cover is a duet with Seth Kauffman.

  5. Thanks for the fun facts! I updated the post accordingly. Been listening to Stens and Floating Action all week--it's great stuff.
