The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

Dire Straits

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

Dire Straits formed in London and hit it big right out of the gate with "Sultans of Swing" from their 1978 debut album. In 2018, Mark Knopfler and the band were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
