For more than two decades, Dust-to-Digital has curated, restored, and presented hard-to-access music.
Founded by Lance Ledbetter in 1999, Dust-to-Digital is directed by the husband-wife team of Lance and April Ledbetter in Atlanta, Georgia. Dust-to-Digital began its mission of creating access to hard-to-find music by producing high-quality books, box sets, CDs, DVDs, and vinyl records. The company continues those efforts and has also evolved to the format standards of today — namely the computer and mobile phone. By combining research with images, audio, and videos, Dust-to-Digital continues to entertain and to educate new audiences of adventurous listeners.
In 2012, Lance and April Ledbetter created a non-profit organization. Music Memory was formed as a way to take action to ensure the sounds and recordings of our past would be preserved. The goal of this company is to make the music from the past available to researchers, teachers, and the public so that it can educate and enlighten present and future generations. To date, Music Memory has digitized over 50,000 recordings.
