TONIGHT: DYLAN LE BLANC LIVE IN DUBLIN
DUBLIN. Tonight, at the Academy, Dylan LeBlanc will headline Phantom Live with support by Andrew Hozier Byrne.
Just 22 years old, this talent from the American South has been described by Uncut magazine as ‘blessed with a beautiful, smoky voice, which melts wistfully into the pedal steel of sometime Burrito Brother Wayne Bridge.. It’s quite lovely…’ and ‘The new Neil Young’ by The Guardian.
Having spent most of his youth in Fame Studios in Alabama (previously home to Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and Etta James) Dylan was signed to its publishing arm as soon as he was legally of age at 18, and released his debut album Pauper’s Field in 2010.
Dylan cites George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass as being a major influence on his forthcoming second album, Cast The Same Old Shadow. Due for release in August, you can pre-order now from Rough Trade’s online store with a bonus disc that includes the tracks Too Wise, Our Great Sadness, and a version of Emma Hartley recorded at Sun Studios, Memphis, as seen in the video above.
