Born Justin Cover Dunning, Covergeist gets his artist name from his grandmother’s maiden and married name, (Cover and Geist respectively).
His debut album, Zombies Vampires and Taylor Swift Oh My!!! has achieved national notoriety and has generated thousands of digital plays. It showed inventiveness and a freewheeling spirit using popular subject matter, classic rock and roll, punk, and a truly americana spirit.
Covergeist started his music career at the infamous Quad Studios, working his way up from intern to Key Holder, where he was introduced to great artists such as Taylor Swift, Juvenile, Dolly Parton, and My Chemical Romance.
Street Art has also played a pivotal role in Covergeist’s life. His lifelong friendship with Jared Aldern (AKA “the Notorious BLVD”) helped create a successful mural company, Transcending Walls. Together the team started bombing walls with Murals reminiscent of artists like Blu, Sheppard Ferry, and Banksy.
Additionally, he is known for his childhood acting career which featured many memorable and laughable roles including: runner up as Beaver in “Leave It to Beaver”, Chrysler Convertibles, and even a Power Rangers Underwear Commercial. As for future acting, Covergeist replies: “I would love to work in Hollywood again when the timing is right.”
His latest record, One More Night is a natural outcome of his maturing style featuring a slew of rock guitar work featuring some of the most rare and original guitars, gigantic drum sounds, fantastic production, and throw backs to classic blues based rock and roll and doo-wop. All of this is thrown together with a brutal honesty that is becoming a feature of Covergeist’s style.
