Been a while since we touched this page. A lot of changes in the world of Dirt since we last were here.

Dirt said good-bye to Andres Moyet, our founding bassist, in April. He quit to pursue other interests and passions. He played with us at Laporte at the end of April and then returned for a one-off at our most recent show at iggy's Bar on June 23. We are sad to see Andres go and we wish him well.

Fortunately, we found ourselves an absolute monster of a bass player in Jason "Jay-Sinn" Ortman. Jason is a veteran of many heavy bands around the Akron-area. He recently moved to North Ridgeville and was looking for something closer to home. It just so happened we were right down the street. It's been a match made in Hell since he came aboard. The band has gotten heavier and our stage presense has improved tremendously. Jason brings a lot of energy and a great look and great playing to the table. Jason has played three shows with us -- Club 42 Eighty on May 12, Whiskey Warehouse on May 27 and Kenilworth II on June 10.

On Jason's recommendation, we went back to being a five-piece for the first time since last November. Guitarist Ronny Turner, from Wadsworth, has joined to give us an even heavier and more layered sound. He and Matt have worked well together in harmonizing and trading solos. Ronny's only played one show with us so far, but we expect things will sound better as he gets further acclimated.

Dirt is closing in on it's one-year anniversary of our first show. We've played 17 shows since that first one, which is pretty impressive, with more on the horizon. Our profile continues to rise, and we have you to thank. We put out our own T-shirt (which is for sale on our site and at every gig we play). We were the subject of a feature story in the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram -- our hometown newspaper -- and gigs at some high-profile venues appear to be on the horizon.

Thank you all for being fans of Dirt! It's been a fun ride so far, and it's only going to get better and better! You guys are awesome! We are Dirt!
