Quickly hitting the studio in the fall, their debut CD was released by Rock Royalty Records in January of 2005.Shortly there after, world reknowned Dave DuCey came in replacing Dallas only to further strengthen the hard kickin' style & sound of National Dust. World wide success of their debut CD and constant touring in the spring and summer of 2005 quickly put NATIONAL DUST on the global map. National Dust returned to the studio in the winter of 2005 to start pre-production of their second CD, entitled "The Road Is My Home", which was released in early 2006. 2. National Dust was formed in late 1997 by Lorrie Matheson (lead vocals, guitar), Peter Clarke (bass), Ross Watson (drums), and Gord Adam (lead guitar).
Their live debut was on January 3, 1998 at the Night Gallery Cabaret, and after one more show that month, the band was chosen as one of five for a MuchMusic Calgary Music special, filmed on February 4. Their debut album, blind luck ain't no luck at all, was recorded in a whirlwind 12-hour session in February 1998 at Airwaves Studios. Shortly after the release of the CD, close friend of the band, Tim Leacock, became a full-time member (he appears on the CD as a guest musician). Playing guitar, mandolin and harmonica, he also added rich background vocals. For the remainder of the year, National Dust performed as a five-piece around Calgary and Edmonton.
In January of 1999, Gord Adam left the band to pursue other musical endeavours and National Dust returned to a four-piece line-up, with Leacock taking over a larger guitar-playing role.
