Dylan LeBlanc takes 'Cautionary Tale' for Europe/UK tour starting next week24-08-2017
Overwhelmed by the speed at which his gift took him from Applebee’s server to “the new Neil Young” in a matter of months, he walked away from an unlikely major label deal after releasing two critically acclaimed albums. He slipped into a blur of booze and self-doubt. Exhausted and damaged at just 23-years-old, Dylan LeBlanc came home to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to write a new life for himself.
In between the moments of clarity and a few familiar falls, he also wrote a 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.
During the Americana Music Association Festival in Nashville this past September, Dylan and Rayland Baxter visited the Luck Reunion X Third Man Records Mansion in East Nashville to record some songs along with other artists like Margo Price, John Paul White, Langhorne Slim, Rodney Crowell, Shovels & Rope, and more. Check out this video from the session:
While Dylan will be the first to admit he wasn’t ready to stand on the stages he played early in his career, there’s no doubting he is now. With a recalibrated compass, he’s back on the road and now finally makes it over to Europe for a good string of shows. Kirby Brown (^) and Aubrie Sellers (º) will be main support on the tour.
