31 year-old Dylan LeBlanc has already established a name for himself as a musician and songwriter with his clear tenor voice and his melodic command of the rocky side of americana. He hails from Shreveport, Louisiana and spent some of his childhood in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He started playing music and writing songs at an early age, and released his debut album Pauper Field in 2010. It and its successors gleaned good reviews, as did his fourth album Renegade from 2019, which had top producer Dave Cobb on board. Dylan LeBlanc’s latest release is the EP Pastimes (June 2021), which comprises six covers: J. J. Cale’s Sensitive Kind, Led Zeppelin’s Going to California and of course John Hartford’s Gentle On My Mind, a huge hit for Glen Campbell in 1967. Pastimes is Dylan LeBlanc’s tribute to some of his inspirations and was recorded the same place as some of his previous productions, in the renowned Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals. Dylan LeBlanc appears solo at Tønder Festival.
