Dylan LeBlanc has announced a run of UK dates for September 2017 in support of his fantastic Single Lock album release 'Cautionary Tale' from last year. These are his first UK dates in almost five years. A little more about Dylan and those all important tour dates follow:
Muscle Shoals’ singer/songwriter Dylan LeBlanc returns to the UK with a tour in September. The shows, LeBlanc's first in the UK for almost 5 years, are in support of album ‘Cautionary Tale’ which came out on Single Lock Records last year.
11-09-2017 - The Lexington - London, UK
13-09-2017 - CCA - Glasgow, UK
14-09-2017 - Whelans - Dublin, Ireland
15-09-2017 - The Lantern - Bristol, UK
16-09-2017 - Brudenell Social Club - Leeds, UK
17-09-2017 - Greystones - Sheffield, UK
LeBlanc’s first two releases were the acclaimed 2010 recordings 'Pauper’s Field' and 2012's 'Cast The Same Old Shadow'. With his reflective, mournful songs that belied his age, critics previously hailed the young singer; The Guardian noted that LeBlanc was “favourably compared with Harvest-era Neil Young and country-folk breakouts Fleet Foxes.”
After the success of his first two albums, LeBlanc slipped into a blur of booze and self-doubt. At just 23-years-old, Dylan 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 wrote his third 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.
Cautionary Tale was released in 2016 and features Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) and is produced by John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes). White and Tanner perform on the release as well.
