An American singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Dylan LeBlanc's smoky, languid, Townes Van Zandt- and Fleet Foxes-inspired Americana draws from a wide array of influences, but leans heavily on the music of the Deep South.
The son of Muscle Shoals session player James LeBlanc, Dylan emerged in 2010 with the country-folk forward Paupers Field, but began incorporating elements of breezy West Coast pop and jangly guitar rock on subsequent releases like Cautionary Tale (2016) and Renegade (2019).
The Shreveport, Louisiana native spent his formative years surrounded by some of the region's finest musicians (his father, singer/songwriter/guitarist James LeBlanc, is a longtime Muscle Shoals session player). Dylan began writing his own songs at 11, and by his late teens, had developed a soulful, bluesy voice and guitar style that resonated with the sights and sounds of his musical youth. He released his brooding and sparse debut, Paupers Field, on Rough Trade in 2010 at the ripe old age of 19, followed by the likeminded Cast the Same Old Shadow in 2012. 2016's lush and compelling Cautionary Tale saw LeBlanc enlist help from a backing band, as did 2019's more pop-leaning Renegade. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
