Dustin Michael Kensrue (pronounced KENZ-roo) (born November 18, 1980) is a vocalist, lyricist, and rhythm guitarist in the Orange County, California post-hardcore/experimental rock quartet Thrice, as well as a solo artist.
He has a tattoo of Proverbs 9:10a ("The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom") written in Hebrew on his left forearm. Many of his lyrics are also drawn from the Bible, such as the pre-chorus in Vheissu's song, "For Miles" ("There is no greater love, than that one shed his blood for his friends"). Similar lyrics are spread throughout Kensrue's music, both in Thrice and in his solo works.
Dustin designed the album artwork for all parts of The Alchemy Index - Thrice's fifth studio recording.
Dustin also added vocals in the song "The Contender" on the album "Pierce the Empire With a Sound" by experimental act The Out Circuit.
Dustin has been working on a new project called The Modern Post and released the Grace Alone EP in 2012
