Dylan Leblanc & The Pollies AUG 9
DYLAN LEBLANC KNOWS SECOND CHANCES DON’T COME AROUND OFTEN.
BUT, NEITHER DO VOICES LIKE HIS.
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 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.
“IN AN IDEAL WORLD, DISCOVERING A BAND LIKE THE POLLIES WOULDN’T BE THAT BIG OF A DEAL, BUT THEN AGAIN, IN AN IDEAL WORLD, EVERY BAND WOULD BE ABLE TO SEAMLESSLY BLEND AND ARRANGE THE ROOT ELEMENTS OF ROCK AND ROLL WHILE FORGING INTO NEW TERRITORY TO CREATE SONGS THAT SOUND SO NATURAL AND EFFORTLESS THAT YOU DON’T NOTICE THE INTRINSIC COMPLEXITY AND MASSIVE UNDERTAKING THAT EACH TRACK REPRESENTS.” - LAST.FM
