Dylan LeBlanc

Sunday 17th September / 7.30pm / £16

Dylan LeBlanc knows second chances don’t come around often. But, neither do voices like his.

His new album, Cautionary Tale: a collection of shimmering, arresting songs with the same haunting vocals that caught the attention of Lucinda Williams and Bruce Springsteen, now with a sharpened edge honed by hastened maturity.
“This record is about me getting honest with myself,” says Dylan. “I had to let the guilt about the past go and find a new truth within myself. This time, I felt like I really had something to say.”
