Alta Dustin

Alta Dustin was a female pop\dance singer from the late '80s/early '90s. She was discovered by A&R representative Jason Flom (who signed rock musicians such as Tori Amos, Stone Temple Pilots, Twisted Sister, Skid Row and White Lion) and signed to Atlantic Records.
In 1989, Alta released two singles: "One Man Woman" and "Tonite." It's unknown how or if the singles ever charted.
Two years later in 1991, she released her debut studio album, "Shoulda Known Better." It's unknown how or if the album ever charted.
The title song and "Lookin' For Love" were released as singles, but it's unknown how or if the songs ever charted. After that, it seemed as if Alta had faded into obscurity.
In 2000, Alta released her sophomore album, "Dychology 101" independently because she was "disenchanted by major record politics." The album received good reception by audiences worldwide.  According to CD Baby, she resides in New York City, but it is unknown what she is up to these days.

I checked the billboard dance charts, I dont see any of her recordings. I do however remember hearing "one man woman" on my local dance music station here in new york. I dont know what chart the previous poster was referring to

'One Man Woman' was such a great Freestyle song in the late 80's that was very underappreciated. It played a lot on Hot-103 (before it changed formats and floors/radio dials to Hot-97) in NYC and alos, maybe even Power 95 and/or Z-100. Probably in my Top 10 of all-time Freestyle joints.
