 Anto Dust is the musical venture of Anto Cossu, musician, film composer and Ivors Academy songwriter from the Italian island of Sardinia. 

 After moving to the UK, Anto started performing live as a solo artist under the name of Anto Dust. As her vision for her music grew, Antonio Perry joined her on lead guitar, Dave Roberts on drums and Eleanor Gall on keyboards and backing vocals.
The quartet have been inseparable since and recorded two EPs together as well as performing 
in and out of the UK.

Anto Dust shared the stage with the likes of Lee Mavers from The La's, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat from the Libertines, Jon McClure from Reverend and The Makers, Jonny Borrell from Razorlight, Drew McConnell from Babyshambles and Liam Gallagher's band, Ali Love, Kyle Falconer from The View, Kieran Leonard and The Horses, Eliot Sumner, Graham Coxon from Blur, John Moore from The Jesus and Mary Chain as well as supporting Fleetwood Mac at the London O2 Arena. In 2023 Anto Dust secured a publishing deal, joined the Hot Vox roster and became a part of the Collision Devices family, alongside luminaries such as Billy Corgan, M83, Radiohead, Anton Newcombe and IDLES.

After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, the band came back in 2021 with two new tracks, A Larkin and Black City, one of which was featured in the multi-awarded short film Blueberry Smoothie by Darren Lee Murphy. The quartet are currently recording their first full album in collaboration with Robert L Smith, producer of Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Lady Gaga. Their newest track, Sinners Sing was released in October 2023, catapulting the band into the spotlight once again. Sinners Sing is currently in the running for Best Song Musically And Lyrically at The Ivors Academy Awards 2024.
